Cross Border Construction Plan Extended 3 Years


After a successful 3 years, the Cross Border Construction Program involving Victoria and NSW building sites on the border has been extended.

The program which involved inspectors visiting some 419 sites and educating both workers and employers about their obligations and the similarities between work on construction sites in both states has apparently succeeded in improving safety by alleviating alot of the confusion that existed around these issues.

The program run by WorkSafe Victoria and SafeWork NSW has been extended to focus on young workers and to get other government departments involved such as NSW Fair Trading and the Victorian Building Authority.

For more information call WorkSafe Victoria on (03) 9641 1216 or 0478 881 663 and SafeWork NSW on (02) 4321 5474 or 0413 186 799.
