Farm worker crushed by seed load

WorkSafe is investigating after a 54-year-old man died while attempting to unload a bulk seed bag into a semi-trailer at Crowlands, north-east of Ararat, yesterday.


It is understood the farm worker was pinned against the top of the trailer when the bag shifted after being lifted above the truck with a telehandler at about 10.00am.

This brings the workplace fatality toll to 16 for 2022, 11 fewer than at the same time last year.
