    A construction company has been ordered to pay more than half a million dollars... after the death of a worker

    A construction company has been ordered to pay more than half a million dollars... after the death of a worker


    Blenheim District Court has imposed the payment on Picton-based Crafar Crouch Construction, after the man was killed in a dump truck accident almost two years ago.

    WorkSafe Investigations chief inspector, Steve Kelly, says letting a non-licensed truck driver behind the wheel has meant a tragic loss of life ... and a grieving family.

    It's not the first time the company has been before the courts.

    Five-months ago, it had to pay out almost 320-thousand-dollars, for failing to protect workers from asbestos during demolition.
