The fatal accident involving an 18 year old apprentice at a construction site in Sydney has prompted renewed calls for an inquiry into construction safety.
The 18 year old apprentice, Christopher Cassaniti died after a 15 metre high scaffolding collapsed. His co-worker was injured and rushed to hospital after being freed from beneath the rubble.
This year alone 5 construction workers have been killed at work, prompting calls for a safety review.
The family of the 18 year old worker asked that the government take urgent action and implement measures to improve construction site safety.
