Len Buckeridge, founder and owner of building and mining company BGC, has called the death of a worker an “unmitigated disaster”.
A pile of sand collapsed onto the man, burying him alive. Buckeridge described the accident, the first fatality at BCG in the 50-plus years since he founded the company, as an “unmitigated disaster” in an interview with the ABC.
“Any fatality is a tragedy and for co-workers and family… I extend to them my sympathy,” she told Perth Now.
BGC is a family-owned, Western Australia-based company.
