The good news is that the number of serious workplace injuries recorded in the ACT has declined, the bad news is that both the ACT’s peak construction body and union agree that a lack of co-operation is undermining workplace safety in the industry.

Safe Work Australia’s Comparative Performance Monitoring Report was released recently and despite the decline in injuries overall, the CFMEU and Master Builders Australia believe the contention in the industry between the peak bodies is putting a damper on safety.

Serious injury claims dropped from 11.9 per 1000 employees the previous year to 9.6 per 1000 employees. The rate of compensation claims is also down in the state with 6 claims last year for every million hours worked.
