Worker dies in telehandler incident

A worker has died while operating a telehandler at Willaura, south of Ararat, last Thursday.


It is understood the 55-year-old was using the telehandler to move a large steel door frame when the load fell and struck him about 2pm.

WorkSafe is investigating.

This brings the workplace fatality toll to 55 for 2022, 20 fewer than at the same time last year.
