A worker was injured Thursday morning outside the $2 billion Allegiant Stadium in an incident involving a boom lift.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the worker was completing touch-up work on the exterior of the building, which is mostly completed.

“The worker was alert and taken to an area hospital for further evaluation,” Eric Grenz, vice president of Mortenson-McCarthy, told the Journal-Review. “We are currently investigating the cause of the incident.” 

The Nevada Occupational Safety and Health Administration is opening an investigation into the matter.

Mortenson-McCarthy had previously released a statement touting its safety record on the 65,000-seat stadium, which will be home to the Las Vegas Raiders and UNLV football. 

“Mortenson-McCarthy made worker safety a priority throughout construction and in doing so achieved a remarkable safety record with a total recordable incident rate of 0.98, which is less than one-third the national average,” the statement read. “More than 12,000 individuals contributed to the project’s design and construction.”
