Metal Beam Crushed Construction Worker

Another construction worker has lost his life on the job, this time in central Sydney, near Darling Harbour at Barangaroo.

The man, in his thirties, died after being struck by a steel beam which was being lifted.

Police and emergency services were called to the scene around 4:30pm to discover a man had the top half of his torso completely crushed.

According to CFMEU NSW secretary Brian Parker, the man died instantly.

He said this incident was preventable, given that nobody should have been in the vicinity of the area when lifting is being conducted. The incident is under investigation.
