Three construction workers killed in Perth

In two separate accidents, less than two hours apart, three construction workers in Perth, Western Australia were killed at their workplace. These latest deaths bring the annual number of workers killed at work in Australia to 170. Unions in Australia have worked very hard to reduce the number of fatalities and injuries over the years. One of the strongest and most successful unions at creating safe workplaces is the CFMEU. It is also the union which has been constantly under attack by the ABCC Royal Commission, and faces repeated raids by police.
