“At this time our thoughts are with the injured worker, his family, friends and work colleagues,” he said. “It was a significant incident and we will be working with all parties to understand how it occurred over the coming days and weeks. This will assist in the prevention of future incidents of a similar nature.
“A fall from a height is one of the most significant risks on a construction site and I’d like to remind all employers to ensure safe work practices are in place and are communicated to workers. Workers should ensure they understand all relevant safe work practices and report any unsafe issues they may come across.”
Support has been made available to those working onsite, including those who may have witnessed the incident.
