Employers in the construction industry, putting the safety of workers at risk should be aware that SafeWork NSW will be targeting dodgy construction sites over the next year.

A year long safety blitz has been launched which will involve inspectors visiting sites around the state and checking up on work from height safety in particular as well as other safety issues.

Falls from height are the biggest killer on construction sites in the state and the number of people killed has tripled over the last 5 years.

This year, 8 people died as a result of  a fall on a work site.
Inspectors will also take the opportunity to put the latest workplace laws into practice which came into effect on November 1st. Under the new laws inspectors can issue spot fines of up to $3600 to businesses that don’t comply. Find out more at https://prwire.com.au/pr/74501/nsw-safety-blitz-to-target-falls-from-heights
