Statement on incorrect media reports relating to fatality at Bladin Point Construction Site

​NT WorkSafe would like to correct the misinformation being reported by the media on the cause of the fatality at Bladin Point Construction Site overnight. The fatality was not as a result of a ‘falling from a great height’ as reported by one media outlet, or falling from a height after breaking through temporary flooring, as reported by another.

The deceased was working in a confined space installing insulation within a tank when the incident occurred. A prohibition notice was issued at 3.00am today stopping all insulation work within tanks on the Bladin Point Construction Site.

WorkSafe Inspectors are currently back onsite continuing their investigation.
