Worker dies after fall from truck

The 60-year-old suffered severe head injuries and died in hospital on Friday.

It is believed a hand rail failed as the man was closing hatches on top of the truck’s grain container, causing him to fall approximately four metres to a concrete driveway below.

The death is the third workplace fatality for 2022, three more than at the same time last year.
