Man Airlifted to Hospital after Ladder Fall on Construction Site

Working on a ladder is one of those tasks that is seemingly so simple, yet it ends in disaster for so many, even experienced workers.

Just recently a man was injured after falling 2 metres from a ladder in central Queensland.

The man was working on a ladder when he fell and sustained chest and shoulder injuries. The man was attended to at the scene by the Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) before being flown to Bundaberg Base Hospital by the RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter.

Make sure all workers on site have completed the necessary safety training before attempting such tasks as working from ladders or any work from height, beginning with the White Card course to avoid incidents like this.
