Another tragic event where a family operated business has suffered the loss of one of it’s team in a workplace incident.
Without knowing the details, and based only on the media reports, we are reluctant to draw conclusions from this event. In saying that, there is no point waiting for a formal report to use the event as a learning opportunity and reminder about line of fire. This does not mean that it was a large factor in this particular incident, but there are few injuries in workplaces that the worker is not in some way exposed and would be safer in a different position.
Having worked in the same industry in the same job in the same suburb seeing the same types of situations, it hits harder than most.
