One worker dead, another injured in fall at Esperance

WorkSafe WA is investigating the death of a 25-year-old worker at Condingup, east of Esperance. The man was believed to have been working on the roof of a shed when he and another worker fell; the other worker was injured in the fall. Inspectors were called to the site and interviewed witnesses to investigate the circumstances of the incident.

WorkSafe WA thoroughly investigates work-related injuries and deaths to prevent future incidents of a similar nature. WorkSafe WA Commissioner Darren Kavanagh said any work-related death was a tragedy, and expressed his sincere condolences to the man’s family.
