WA: Worker Crushed at Abattoir

Worksafe is investigating the death of an 18-year-old man whose body was found at an abattoir in Harvey Beef.

It is believed the man’s head was crushed in machinery which was located in an isolated part of a roof space.

His death went undetected for four days before he was discovered.

Ros Weatherill from Police Media says officers are investigating how the accident happened.

“Police are investigating the likelihood that the man’s clothing may have become entangled in a piece of machinery in a cool room,” she said.

“We’re looking at the circumstances behind the man not being found until Friday and are working closely with the management of Harvey Beef.”
