Investigations launched after NSW mine worker suffers serious leg injury in lifting operation

The NSW Resources Regulator is conducting an investigation after a mine worker suffered a leg fracture during a lifting operation last month.

The Regulator said the worker was struck on the leg by a lifting plate attached to an overhead crane.

It happened at a coal mine in northern New South Wales.

“The worker had finished repairing a haul truck and was using the crane to remove the lifting plate from the axle box when it became wedged,” the Resources Regulator said in an information release.

“The crane continued to apply load, and when the lifting plate freed, it hit the worker on the leg.”
