Australia’s Construction Job Hiring Spree

Australia is on a construction hiring spree and it doesn’t show any signs of slowing soon.

Due to the expansion of activity in the sector, including in apartment construction, hiring levels have lifted to their highest level in 6 months. Hiring in the sector increased every month over the past 9 months.

 According to the Australian Industry Group (AIG) this rise in employment reflects the growing level of work and the need for businesses to ensure sufficient resources to meet future demand. 
With the rise in activity and level of employment in  the sector, it’s important we don’t prioritise productivity over safety, especially given that construction remains one of the most high risk sectors in Australia.
Every person working on a building or construction site must be properly trained on safety, beginning with construction induction training.
