Death charges

A BASSENDEAN engineering company has been charged over the death of a worker who was crushed by machinery in May 2019.

Three years after the death, Worksafe commenced prosecution action against Hofmann Engineering on a charge of failing to provide a safe work environment, causing the death of an employee.

On May 9, 2019 a welder at Hofmamn’s fabrication workshop was welding large gear segments when the boom of the welding manipulator suddenly fell on him.

The company’s yet to enter a plea to the charge and the case is listed for a mention in the magistrates court on July 25.
