Worker dies after falling 1.4 m from pallet rack

A Victorian bindery finishing operator died in hospital on 5 October after falling approximately 1.4 metres from a pallet rack at a Clayton South printing and marketing business on 1 October. It is believed that the 64-year-old man fell forward onto a concrete floor while hoisting himself onto the first shelf of a pallet rack to access a box.

The fatality brings the state’s toll to 56 — five up on the same time last year. The incident is being investigated by WorkSafe Victoria.
