Have you addressed all slip, trip and fall hazards on the work site? A serious workplace incident that happened recently is an example of the consequences of failing to do so.

A freak accident at a Gosford construction site has left a man in serious condition in hospital.

The worker tripped and fell while working at the site and became impaled on a steel reinforcing bar.

According to reports, the man was working on the 8th floor of the building site when the incident occurred.

The worker, believed to be in his thirties, tripped and fell to the floor below and onto a steel bar.

Emergency personnel arrived on the site and freed the man from the steel bar and treated him at the scene before transporting him to Gosford Hospital in a serious but stable condition.

The incident is being investigated by SafeWork.
