The WA construction industry is mourning the loss of a young worker who was killed on a North Coogee work site on Monday morning.
Nathaniel Good was struck in the head by a door to a display container, made out of metal and timber.
It’s understood he was struck by a door to a pop-up display container, made out of steel and wood.
His sudden death has sparked a WorkSafe WA investigation, while friends have paid tribute and fellow workers downed tools.
M/Construction director Michael Read said the company was “devastated” by the young man’s death.
“We’re doing everything possible to support WorkSafe and the relevant authorities as they investigate the incident,” he said.
“Our thoughts go to the family of the deceased.”
Other workers were offered counselling after the tragic fatality.
It could take up to a year for WorkSafe to thoroughly investigate exactly what went so tragically wrong.
In High Wycombe, friends have gathered to pay tribute to their lost friend.
A group of people took off on a memorial drive in Nathaniel’s honour, making their way down to the North Coogee site to remember their mate.
Earlier in the day one friend, Diana, laid flowers at the worksite as a mark of respect.
“Nathaniel was an amazing guy,” she said.
“Everyone’s devastated; we can’t comprehend what’s happened.
“We just want to find answers. He didn’t deserve this.
“Such a bubbly person. He’s respected by a lot of people.”
Friends also posted tributes to Nathaniel online.
“RIP Big fella, party hard up there,” one friend wrote.
“Here’s to you Nath, cheers brother.”
