Be particularly cautious when working from heights as this is a major cause of injury and death among construction workers in Australia.

The latest incident took place at a home on the NSW Mid North Coast involving a man in his forties.

The man fell from a ladder and became impaled by a star picket.

He was treated on the scene before being taken to a local hospital. The man was then rushed to Gold Coast Hospital for further treatment. He remains in a stable condition in hospital, but he is one of the lucky ones- the Sunday afternoon incident could have been fatal.
