Canberra Light Rail Workers Forced to Labour in Extreme Heat

Construction workers on Canberra’s light rail network recently had to work in near 40 degree heat, despite the construction union pushing for a deal for workers to stop working when temperatures reach 37 degrees.

Workers had to endure 39 degrees recently while working on the government funded light rail project, in attempts to stop delays to completion of the first stage of the project from Gungahlin to the city.

This comes just days after WorkSafe ACT Commissioner Greg Jones went on the radio and urged businesses and employees to take of each other and themselves as temperatures soared. He highlighted the construction industry in particular as well as other exposed sectors.  See more https://www.canberratimes.com.au/national/act/canberra-light-rail-workers-on-shift-in-near-40-degree-heat-20190116-p50rqj.html
