Tragedy has struck a SA work site on Saturday afternoon.

A man was killed in an industrial accident involving a scissor lift at the Royal Adelaide Hospital work site.

Although the identity of the victim has not yet been released, workers on the site are mourning the loss of their colleague who sustained fatal head injuries during the incident.

Work on the site has been halted following the tragey.

In November 2014 another worker was killed in a incident on the site.

CFMEU SA assistant secretary Mick McDermott said too many Australians were being killed by workplace accidents, with 2016’s death toll already above 15.

Safework SA and SAPOL are investigating the incident, while support is being provided to the workforce in the wake of the tragedy.
