Yet another construction accident has taken place, this time at a worksite north of Brisbane.
A man was shot in the chest with a nail gin at a site in Kallangur last week.
The 18 year old man had a nail embedded in his chest when paramedics arrived on the site around 11:30am on Monday morning.
He was rushed to Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital in a serious condition.
The incident highlights the risks associated with nail gun use, especially for new and young workers. Employers should ensure young workers have received the proper nail gun safety training before beginning work to avoid such incidents.
