Horrific Accident involving Gold Coast Construction Worker

An incident on the Gold Coast is an example of the risks involved with construction work, especially when working in confined spaces such as an elevator shaft.

A construction worker was seriously injured while working on the Jewel Towers construction site, Surfers Paradise recently.

The man, believed to be in his twenties was working in an elevator shaft when a lift began to move and pulled him into equipment.

The man sustained serious injuries to his chest, back and abdomen and was taken to Gold Coast University Hospital where he remains inĀ  a stable condition.

The site was shut down as workplace health and safety officers investigated. WorkSafe said the construction industry is a dangerous one, and we need to be aware of our surroundings particularly given the dynamic nature of the industry. As the construction site changes constantly we need to remain aware at all times.

Steven Asnicar is regarded as a leader across many fields of industry. In particular, his specialisation across the health, infrastructure, construction, resource and utility sectors has seen him successfully change the dynamics of these industries through the introduction of new strategic, marketing, training and technical frameworks. Steven works closely with industry peak bodies such as Safework Australia, Australian Logistics Council, National Advisory for Tertiary Education, Skills and Employment (NATESE) and the Council of Australian Governments in the development of new delivery standards and industry specific programs.
