A worker has died at a workshop site in Kalgoorlie Boulder over the weekend. The Monadelphous worker was in a yard Saturday March 7 when it’s appeared the worker sustained injury and later passed away.
“We are deeply saddened by the loss of our colleague in the close-knit community of Kalgoorlie. We extend our sincere condolences to our employee’s family, friends and colleagues during this very difficult time,” Monadelphous Managing Director, Rob Velletri, said. The wellbeing of our people is our primary focus, and support is being provided to our employee’s family, as well as to our team in the Goldfields. At Monadelphous, the safety and wellbeing of our people is a core value. We will be conducting a thorough investigation into the accident and working with the relevant authorities.
The family of the man released a statement on Sunday saying they were “proud as punch” of the 26 year old who had relocated back to Kalgoorlie Boulder about 12 months ago. They described him as a very social family man and also gave thanks for the support received.
“We would like to thank our, and his, family, close friends, the Goldfields community and Monadelphous for their support during this terrible time,”
Friends and colleagues also took to social media to share their thoughts, love and support.
