The company involved in the scaffolding collapse at Macquarie Park that claimed the life of a worker, is being sued over a separate incident involving scaffolding.

The incident revolves around a scaffolding collapse that injured a worker on the north shore.

The latest incident involving the scaffolding company resulted in the death of apprentice formworker Christopher Cassaniti who died after being crushed by rubble. Another worker was also seriously injured.

The company is also being sued in the NSW Supreme Court by a labourer who was allegedly injured at a construction site in October 2012. Source: https://www.smh.com.au/national/nsw/labourer-takes-company-to-court-over-construction-site-accident-20190411-p51da2.html
