An Ipswich factory worker has died after being crushed in the early hours of Saturday.
Emergency services were called to the James Hardie facility on Cobalt Street in Carole Park about 1.20am, but the 63-year-old man died at the scene.
A Workplace Health and Safety Queensland spokesman said initial information indicated the worker’s head was crushed by a scissor-lift device.
“We’ve had inspector, investigator and engineer on site all day,” the spokesman said on Saturday.
The WH&S investigation was continuing and a report would be prepared for coroner.
