The incident happened at construction company Lanyon & Le Compte Construction Ltd on Shivas Pl, Bromley, about 7am on Wednesday.
Tracey Ogilvy, who works at nearby business Aerofast Tiedowns, confirmed the construction company’s site was cordoned off yesterday morning.
“We don’t actually know exactly what happened. We just saw that it was cordoned off.”
She said the cordon was gone by yesterday afternoon.
Lanyon & Le Compte’s director refused to comment to The Star.
St John spokesman Gerard Campbell said the injured person was taken to Christchurch Hospital in a critical condition.
Campbell did not know the nature of the injuries.
WorkSafe is making inquiries into the incident.
In 2013, a subcontractor for Lanyon & Le Compte Construction Ltd who was working on the Christchurch quake rebuild was lucky to survive after being impaled on a steel rod. It skewered three vital organs and narrowly missed his heart.
