Worker dies in scissor lift incident

WorkSafe is investigating after a 37-year-old man died while painting inside a factory at Brunswick on Sunday.


It's believed the contractor was using an elevated work platform to reach windows near the factory's roof at about 1pm when he struck a steel truss.

The man died at the scene.

The fatality brings the number of workplace deaths this year to four, which is one more than at the same time last year.
