The scaffolding company at the centre of a scaffolding collapse at Macquarie Park that claimed the life of a worker is also being sued over another incident which involved scaffolding that fell and struck a worker on the north shore a few years ago.

Last month apprentice formworker Christopher Cassaniti died when scaffolding collapsed and he was crushed in the rubble. A 39 year old co-worker was injured in the incident but the young apprentice was not so lucky, he died shortly after the incident, he was just a teenager.

The company is being sued by a labourer over an incident in October 2012 when the man was allegedly injured. The company is denying the allegations.

Scaffolding safety has become a major concern over the past few years and WorkSafe has investigated a slew of collapses.
