A construction safety project run by WorkSafe Victoria and SafeWork NSW has been considered a success and will continue to run for another 3 years.
The program to benefit more workers in Border Construction sites revolves around safety inspectors visiting building sites on both sides of the Victoria/NSW border and educating workers and employers about the similarities of working between the 2 states.
Previously there was alot of confusion surrounding safety obligations on cross border construction sites which the program has helped to alleviate.
Now inspectors will turn their focus to young workers and will involve other government departments as well. Find out more at: http://content.safetyculture.com.au/news/index.php/08/cross-border-construction-program-extended-3-years/#.V802cPl97IV
