Twenty more die at work
Another 20 work-related deaths have been reported in the latest figures from Safe Work Australia.
Sixteen male and two female workers plus two female bystanders died in November 2013, says the Notifiable Fatalities Monthly Report, which was released last week.
Eight of the victims died in vehicle crashes on public roads, while three died in vehicle incidents not on public roads.
Another three victims were crushed; while two fell from a height.
The following incidents resulted in one death each: an air crash, an electrocution, being hit by a vehicle not on a public road, and being hit by an unattended moving vehicle not on public road.
Total deaths stand at 194 in the 11 months to November 2013.
