    Ports of Auckland's been fined 540-thousand dollars, after the tragic death of a driver

    Ports of Auckland's been fined 540-thousand dollars, after the tragic death of a driver


    In August 2018, a straddle truck, for lifting containers, tipped over.

    It trapped and critically injured 23-year-old Laboom Dyer.

    WorkSafe revealed failures in the port's training of drivers, and says some didn't pay attention to the tip alarm.

    A bonus system rewarded drivers for moving containers quickly, which Dyer often received despite his high tip-alarm rate.

    Dyer had also been using a mobile phone and wasn't wearing a seatbelt.

    His young son has been awarded 80 thousand dollars compensation.
