$300,000 fine for workplace fatality - Holding Redlich assists widow

A fatality occurred at the B & D Doors Kilsyth factory in November 2006, when a 7 metre industrial drum fell from an overhead crane, killing a 51 year old man.

B & D Doors was prosecuted and pleaded guilty to a number of offences relating to its failure to provide a safe place of work and adequately train its staff.

Adviceline assisted the widow prepare a Victim Impact Statement, which was read out in court and relied upon by the Judge in sentencing the company. We also assisted the deceased's family to recover compensation entitlements and damages arising from this avoidable workplace death.
