Fell from height & strucked by object

The Labour Department (LD) is highly concerned about the work accident that happened at a construction site in Wan Chai this morning (July 22), in which a male worker was suspected to have fallen from height to the bottom of the hoistway of a material hoist and died. The LD is saddened by the death of the worker in the accident and expresses its deepest sympathy to the victim's family.
 
A LD's spokesman said, "We commenced immediate on-site investigation as soon as we were notified of the accident and issued suspension notices to the contractors involved to suspend the erection, dismantling, alteration and use of the material hoist on the site. The contractors cannot resume the work until the LD is satisfied that measures to abate the relevant risk have been taken."
