WorkSafe ACT executes search warrant after tragedy


WorkSafe ACT has executed a search warrant in relation to the death of a 47-year-old worker at a construction site in Denman Prospect on Saturday 11 January.

WorkSafe ACT executed a search warrant, supported by the Australian Federal Police and Border Force, to a company director in Denman Prospect on 15 January, to assist their investigations.

ACT Work Safety Commissioner Greg Jones said he would “use all powers available” to “fully and thoroughly” investigate the incident.
