After the recent incident involving a 17 year old worker during which he collapsed due to the heat, the CFMEU has reminded all employers that exposing workers to extreme heat is a critical safety hazard.

The young man was on his third day on the job when the incident occured. The day of the incident the temperature had reached 41.5 degrees.

CFMEU SA Secretary Aaron Cartledge encouraged workers who felt pressurised by their employers to work in the seething temperatures to seek assistance from the union.

Employers need to ensure they are protecting their workers from the consequences of heat exposure.
