    Worksafe is warning employers to make sure migrant workers understand safety risks

    Worksafe is warning employers to make sure migrant workers understand safety risks

    Sidogg Investments was fined just over 280 thousand dollars in the Ashburton District Court yesterday after a worker received spinal injuries on a Canterbury dairy farm in 2018.

    WorkSafe chief inspector Steve Kelly says English is his second language and the man was unaware standing on a trailer draw bar was a hazard - and slipped and was run over by the trailer.

    Kelly says the injuries have changed his life and should never have happened.
