An accident on a Queensland site has landed one man in his sixties in hospital. The man suffered serious injuries after an incident with a drop saw.
The man was rushed to Toowoomba Hospital for specialist treatment.
As an article I recently read points out, there are more than 8,000 hospital admissions each year over work related, hand and wrist injuries.
Many of these admissions were construction workers who were injured on the job, while the manufacturing, wholesale and retail trade industries are also high risk in relation to hand and wrist incidents.
