Feedlot charged over worker electrocution

A cattle feedlot operator has been charged after a Victorian worker was fatally electrocuted in the state's west.

The 29-year-old man died when the telehandler he was using to stack hay bales near Dimboola made contact with overhead power lines in November 2020.

Worksafe has charged Harmony Operations Australia Pty Ltd with two counts of failing to provide and maintain a working environment that was safe and without risks to health.

It's alleged the company breached sections of the occupational health and safety act by failing to establish an exclusion zone around the power lines.

The matter has been listed for a filing hearing at the Horsham Magistrates Court on November 21.

AAP has contacted Harmony Operations Australia for comment.
