Closure of Newcastle rail stations not technically a closure of whole line, State Government lawyer says
A New South Wales company has been fined $200,000 over a rail accident near Maitland that claimed the life of one worker and injured four others.
In March 2009, Sydney Labour hire worker Agamalu Iosefa was killed when rail lines sprang free as a crane was unloading a panel weighing almost 35 tonnes at Farley.
Four other workers suffered serious injuries and one lost part of his arm.
The men were involved in the replacement of railway lines and supporting concrete sleepers.
Hebron Holdings also known as Taylor Rail has received fines totalling $200,000 in the New South Wales Industrial court for breaches of the Occupational Health and Safety act.
Justice Roger Boland found the company failed to provide and maintain a safe system of work for installing rail panels at the site.
He said a check should have been carried out to confirm the load was not under tension before allowing workers near the panel to remove clips holding the lines together.
