    Freight company Refrigafreighters Limited has been fined 240-thousand-dollars, over a forklift injury

    Freight company Refrigafreighters Limited has been fined 240-thousand-dollars, over a forklift injury


    Worksafe National Investigations Manager, Casey Broad, says the parked machine's handbrake failed in 2022, and it rolled down a slope.

    It fell on a 33-year-old worker - giving them a punctured lung and broken back.

    Broad says the vehicle wasn't maintained, and the serious issues with the handbrake meant it would have moved even on a slight incline.
