Diesel fuel tank explosion claims life of worker

WorkSafe Victoria is investigating a diesel fuel tank explosion that led to the death of a 35-year-old man. The incident occurred at a part-time engine repair business at Fieldstone on 15 February 2021.

It is believed the man was using an electric grinder to cut a hole in the tank when fuel vapour ignited, causing the explosion. The death brings the workplace fatality toll to three for 2021, 11 fewer than at the same time last year.
