A TRUCKING company and a rigger have been charged over an East Perth construction site accident that killed two men.

Irishmen Joseph McDermott and Gerard Bradley were crushed by a concrete tilt-up panel that fell on them while they were taking a break at the apartment complex site in 2015.

Axedale Holdings, which operates Shaw’s Cartage Contractors and their lead supervisor Benjamin Paul Botica face charges of causing the deaths by failing to ensure the safety of people on the worksite.

The company and Mr Botica were not required to plead to the charges in court today and will reappear next month.
