Tradesman dies in scissor lift accident

WorkSafe Victoria is investigating an incident where a 37-year-old man died while painting inside a factory in Brunswick, Melbourne.

The contractor was using an elevated work platform to reach windows near the roof when he struck a steel truss, dying at the scene.

This is the fourth workplace fatality of the year, which is one more than was recorded this time last year.
