Another worker has died this morning after being trapped under a forklift at the Sydney Markets.
The worker died at the scene in Flemington, in the city’s inner west, about 5.20am today, a NSW Police media spokeswoman said.
A coronial report is being prepared but WorkCover will handle the investigation.
As the OFarrell government beats their chest about rewarding employers with low premiums and anti worker workers compensation laws it seems bosses still cant prevent injury or death on the job.
“This is horrendous” says Injured Workers Support Network facilitator Michelle Burgess.”the third worker killed on the job since the OFarrell government embarked on its campaign to slash benefits to injured workers and their families.
Unfortunately for this family not only have they lost a loved one but there will be no compensation for the family for the stress and trauma caused to the family.”
The Injured Workers Support Network extends its sympathy to the family and friends of the worker killed and calls on Barry OFarrell to take action against employers who cause work place death.
