Worksafe shuts down Kenoss site in Molonglo

johnboy 27 March 2012 2

WorkSafe ACT has let us know they’ve slapped a prohibition order on Kenoss Contractors Pty Ltd site in Molonglo:

“After visiting the site in Molonglo, WorkSafe ACT found a number of safety concerns. The recent incident at Kenoss’ Turner site is a stark reminder of just how dangerous construction work can be,” said Mr McCabe.

“Kenoss’ work at Molonglo will stay closed until we are fully satisfied with the safety systems in place on site.”

The site closure follows an incident at another Kenoss worksite, where a worker was found collapsed beside his tip truck last Friday. WorkSafe issued a Prohibition Notice on further work on that site from Saturday 24 March. That Notice is still in place.

This story hasn’t ended well.

Thoughts to his friends and family.

I do hope he ends up OK. A little while ago some NSW leccy mob used to run TV adverts about making sure there were no lines about when using tip trucks. I have an idea it was targeting farms. Be interesting to see who is to blame for what in this bad case.
