A young worker has died after being struck on the head at a construction site in North Coogee this morning.

Business News understands WorkSafe inspectors and WA Police are currently at the Reinforcement Parade site investigating the incident.

The incident took place adjacent to the site of Match’s 56-apartment development M/31, which is occupied by parent company MGroup’s construction arm.

In a statement released this afternoon, M/Construction director Michael Read confirmed the worker was an employee of a subcontracted business that it had engaged.

He said the company was devastated by the incident.

“M/Construction maintains the highest standards of onsite safety and we are doing everything possible to support WorkSafe and relevant authorities as they investigate the incident," he said.

“Our thoughts go to the family of the deceased.”
