Although this incident didn’t happen on an Australian work site I found it particularly interesting because it highlights the vulnerability of young and new workers on high risk work sites and should serve as a warning to employers about the need to pay more attention to these inexperienced workers.

The incident involved a 21 year old worker in Ohio, USA who on his first day of work lost four of his fingers. The man had only been at work for a few hours when the accident occurred. Get the full story here.
