Employer Bulletin | 20 November

Issue date

In April 2022 Auckland scaffolder, Jahden Nelson, suffered an electric shock at work that resulted in the loss of both his arms. The incident could have been avoided had his employer, CPA 2022 Limited, demonstrated greater diligence.

Jahden was dismantling scaffolding when the steel pole he was handling met an overhead powerline, resulting in high voltage electrical burns to his upper and lower limbs and necessitating the amputation of both arms up to the upper bicep.

The incident has left Jahden dependent on daily assistance for routine activities, for the rest of his life due to the severity of his injuries. CPA 2022 Limited has been sentenced for its health and safety failure.
