A Brisbane tradie has been released from hospital with bruising after being pinned to a wall by a small forklift at a worksite west of Brisbane.

AAP quotes an Aurizon spokesman who says one of the rail freight company's employees was injured in an accident involving a pallet stacker at Redbank on Wednesday morning.

The employer says the 45-year-old was not impaled by its arms, as emergency services workers earlier suggested.

"He's out of hospital and apart from some bruising, he has no other substantial injuries, so it's a much better outcome than how it was initially reported," the spokesman told the wire service.
