A 25 year-old worker has been sent to hospital with a dislocated shoulder, after having to be cut free from the machinery of a cherry picker.
The Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue service was called to the site at Katesgrove Primary School in Reading on Monday morning.
Two fire engines were sent, and the man caught in the machinery of the cherry picker was cut free using hydraulic equipment.
A Morgan Sindall spokesman said: “A member of our site team was injured yesterday in an incident involving an elevated work platform at Katesgrove Primary School in Reading.
“The Health and Safety Executive attended the site and construction work on the school’s extension temporarily halted. Our site operator suffered a dislocated shoulder, but is recovering well in hospital.
“Work has restarted at the site and we are helping the HSE investigate the accident.”
Morgan Sindall is carrying out works for Reading Borough Council to increase capacity at Katesgrove by 210 places, in a contract understood to be worth around £7.5m.
