Another construction death has occurred, this time at a hospital construction site in Adelaide.

The worker had been using a jackhammer at the work site before he died on Wednesday afternoon, prompting questions about whether he should have been working with a jackhammer.

The 55 year old man was working at the Flinders Medical Centre when the incident occurred at the car park site.

Aaron Cartledge of the SA CFMEU said workers who had witnessed the death were very troubled, especially those who had witnessed workers die at the new Royal Adelaide Hospital.

The union has called for a full investigation into the incident, with Cartledge saying they were not willing to just accept the death as natural.
