Construction work has resumed at Royal Adelaide Hospital.
The CFMEU is expecting a gradual restart to construction work at the new Royal Adelaide Hospital following the completion of a range of safety checks.The ABC
reports that the construction site was shut down on Monday in response to the death of 63-year-old supervisor Steve Wyatt, who died after being crushed between a scissor lift's handrail and a doorway on Saturday.
It is the second time a worker has died at the site in an accident involving a scissor lift.
In 2014, 54-year-old Jorge Castillo-Riffo died after suffering serious head, neck and back injuries at the worksite when he was crushed between a scissor lift and a concrete slab above.
After that death, new guidelines were introduced that mandated two people use the lifts to avoid future fatalities.
The latest incident has triggered renewed calls for a coronial inquest into the deaths and safety standards at the new RAH site.
Union secretary Aaron Cartledge says scissor lifts will not be used at the hospital until further notice.
An investigation into the incident is being undertaken by SafeWork SA.
