Man in Hospital after Incident with Scissor Lift

Wherever heavy machinery and equipment are in operation on a work site, adequate training, instruction and supervision is necessary, as a recent incident that took place in Sydney highlights.

The incident involving a scissor lift left a man in critical condition in hospital.

The 25 year man was operating the scissor lift at a construction site in Sydney’s north-west at the time. He was rushed to Royal North Shore Hospital by road in a critical condition.

The most common accidents involving scissor lifts are collapses or tip-overs, falls and electrocutions, so it’s important that workers are properly trained on scissor lift safety before operating the machinery, and that they are in possession of the necessary  high risk licence.
