Worker injured during lifting activity

The Regulator has launched an investigation after a worker suffered a broken leg when he was hit by a lifting plate attached to an overhead crane. 

The worker had finished repairing a haul truck and was using the crane to remove the lifting plate from the axle box when it became wedged.  

The crane continued to apply load, and when the lifting plate freed it hit the worker on the leg. 

The Regulator has commenced an investigation to determine the cause and circumstances of the incident.
