A worker in Sydney recently died from fatal injuries after being pulled into a wood-chipper machine.
A group of workers were felling branches and vegetation at a school in Lindfield when the incident happened.
SafeWork NSW inspectors responded to the incident and attended the site and the regulator has commenced an investigation to determine the cause and circumstances of the incident.
The regulator said PCBUs must consider ‘reasonably practicable’ control measures to manage the risk of tree trimming and removal work.
Control measures that may prevent a similar incident include:
Unit 2/217-219 Mickleham Rd Tullamarine Victoria 3043
