OneSteel Manufacturing Pty Ltd has been fined for operating a risky heavy goods lift.

SafeWork SA prosecuted the steelmaker in the Industrial Relations Court of South Australia following an investigation at the company’s Whyalla plant in July 2011.

“The charges stated that the lift was not in a safe condition due to missing door guides, a worn door lock, broken emergency access devices and a pool of water in the bottom of the lift pit,” SafeWork SA said.

“Some of these defects had been noted in inspection reports from the manufacturer.”

The company was fined $56,250. This included a 25 per cent reduction for the company’s early guilty plea.
