A worker has been transported to hospital yesterday afternoon after a workplace incident in Townsville.
Emergency services were called to a worksite in Mount St John shortly before 3pm.
Upon arrival, they treated a patient who had suffered serious burns to his chest, face, and arms after fuel ignited in front of him.
He was transported to Townsville University Hospital in a serious condition.
Less than 24 hours later, a worker suffered a serious injury at a workplace in Stuart, just before 10 am today.
Ambulance teams treated the worker for injuries sustained in a saw accident, and subsequently transported to hospital in a serious condition.
It is the latest in a series of at least four serious workplace-related incidents around North Queensland this week.
