WorkSafe Victoria and SafeWork NSW have embarked on a cross border construction inspection program targeting the prevention of falls.
Inspectors visited sites in Mildura between 18 June and 22 June, identifying breaches and discussing similarities and differences between the health and safety regulations on either side of the border and how employers and workers can fulfill their safety obligations.
Falls are major issue of concern for construction sites in both Victoria and NSW, claiming a number of lives over the past decade. In fact in NSW it is the number one killer on construction sites. That is also why worker safety training is so important.
