A contract worker was injured at the Invista Victoria site about 9:30 a.m. Thursday, said Amy Hodges, Invista public affairs manager.

The man was transported to an area hospital, she said, after he fell from about the distance of a one-story building. She said the man was treated at a hospital and released Thursday.

Hodges said the accident is under investigation and did not have further details.

"Invista takes the health and safety of its employees and contractors very seriously. ... We do not treat these incidents lightly," Hodges said.

She said it was an isolated incident and that the safety of other employees or the community was not at risk.
