Death of a Worker in 2014 Could Have Been Avoided, Union Says.

The 2014 death of a worker on an Adelaide building site could have been prevented, The CFMEU says.

An inquest into the death of the construction worker heard that the man shouldn’t have been working on a scissor lift at the time.

CFMEU state secretary Aaron Cartledge gave evidence before the Inquest stating that the use of the scissor lift was completely wrong for the situation.

The man was working alone on an elevated platform at the Adelaide hospital site when he was crushed between the lift and slab of the floor above. The man died of brain injuries.

Mr Cartledge said there were many other ways the work could have been conducted instead of working with the scissor lift in the confined space. See more at http://content.safetyculture.com.au/news/index.php/04/union-says-death-worker-hospital-building-site-2014-avoided/#.WuYWXJclE1l
