Man’s hand trapped in machinery - 20.7.16

Emergency crews attended a workplace incident at a North Sydney business where a man’s arm got trapped in machinery.

The man, aged in his 20s, was working with machinery on Thursday at about 11.00am when the incident took place.

Crews managed to free the man after a short while and treated him at the scene before taking him to Royal North Shore Hospital for specialist treatment.

He travelled in a stable condition.

More than 80 Australian workers have died on the job this year, according to Safe Work Australia figures.
