A company has been fined $140,000 over the death of a rigger who was pinned between equipment while working in the Cooper Basin.
The industrial death is the first to be dealt with under tougher penalties introduced in South Australia, but the penalty was far from the maximum because of the company's cooperation and guilty plea.
Fred Kekena, 36, was crushed to death on a Moomba rig in 2008 while using the wrong tools for the job.
Weatherford Drilling International pleaded guilty to breaching workplace safety laws.
The Industrial Court imposed a fine of $140,000 and awarded $10,000 each to Mr Kekena's partner and mother as compensation.
Andrea Madeley from victims support group VOID says she is lobbying the companies involved to help the family visit the site where Mr Kekena died.
"We just want to see this happen and we're not accepting the answer no," she said.
Mr Kekena's family, which lives in New Zealand, could not afford to fly to Adelaide for the penalty hearing.
