Workplace Standards is investigating an incident in which a worker fell from the roof of a store in Bay Drive, Spreyton, near Devenport, Monday morning.
According to The Mercury, the man fell 6m from the roof and suffered serious head injuries. He was brought to the North-West Regional Hospital in Burnie and was later on flown to Hobart.
Workplace Standards General Manager Roy Ormerod is concerned with the fact that a second worker had fallen from a roof.
“This is the second fall from height in the North-West in less than six months,” said Mr Ormerod.
“We will be talking to contractors to ensure steps are taken to stop such incidents happening again.
“There are safety systems in place which should stop this kind of accident happening at all.
Tasmania Police is also conducting their own investigation over the incident.
