VenuesWest, scaffolder fined after worker falls to his death at HBF Stadium

The state government agency behind the operation of HBF Stadium has copped a $90,000 fine after a worker died when he fell through a skylight at the stadium in 2016.

The Western Australian Sports Centre Trust, which traded as VenuesWest, pleaded guilty to failing to ensure people at the workplace were not exposed to hazards, with the fine handed down in the Perth Magistrates Court on Friday.

VenuesWest had contracted a company for external painting work at the stadium in June 2016, which in turn contracted Perth Aluminium Scaffolds to set up and remove scaffolding on the stadium roof.

Four Perth Aluminium Scaffolds workers were dismantling scaffolding on the site – erected to give painters access to masts and wires on the roof of the stadium – when the 33-year-old worker stepped on a skylight and fell about 11 metres to a concrete concourse below.
