Video: Remembering the West Gate Bridge collapse

The moment the West Gate Bridge collapsed

 

Forty-eight years ago, today, a span of the West Gate Bridge collapsed, killing 35 and injuring 18.

The findings of a royal commission into the collapse, together with union efforts, paved the way for the strengthening of occupational health and safety laws in Australian workplaces.

Mourn the dead, fight like hell for the living. We will never forget the workers that were lost that day.
