Yet another workplace incident has taken place, this time on a Gungahlin site.

A 25 year old worker was taken to hospital after he fell 3 metres at a worksite to upgrade the Gungahlin Marketplace shopping centre and landed on a concrete slab.

The man was taken to Canberra Hospital where he was treated and released the same the day. He suffered serious injuries to his lower back and pelvis.

CFMEU ACT secretary Dean Hall said the man was working to reinforce a concrete slab with steel cable when he stepped on a sheet of formwork ply.

The incident is being investigated.
