-- According to reports, the 25-year old sub-contractor suffered from severe head and chest injuries while operating a lift equipment at the building site of the said company on the corner of Charlotte and Albert Streets at about 7 am (AEST). Paramedics came to revive him before he was rushed to the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital (RBWH). He was diagnosed to be in a critical condition under an induced comatose.
Because of this incident, safety issues have arouse amongst the workers in the building site. Thus, counselling has been offered to address these issues. Building union spokesman Kane Pearson said, “the investigation is now currently underway with Queensland Workplace Health and Safety, the unions, the builder and the people who actually found the worker in the situation”.
Laing O’Rourke construction company, on the other hand, has taken its stand to have maintained a satisfactory safety record and says that the safety and protection of their workers are on their topmost priority.
