The second worker to have been killed on the new Royal Adelaide Hospital construction site due to a scissor lift accident has been identified as Steve Wyatt.

Workers on the site voted to halt work following the death of Mr Wyatt, aged 63 last week.

He died after being crushed between a scissor lift and the head of a low doorway. He was supervising the fitout inside the site on Saturday when the incident occured. My Wyatt was a father of 2 and a grandfather.

Tributes poured in for the slain worker who was described by co-workers as a respected electrical engineer with 42 years of experience in the buildining industry.

Hundreds of workers attended the mass meeting to discuss the safety concerns and other pressures due to the delays in the project. Workers chose to walk off the site on Tuesday due to their concerns.
