A joint inspection blitz by WorkSafe Victoria and SafeWork NSW focusing on keeping young workers safe and reducing deadly falls in the Albury Wodonga region, is a reminder of the importance of keeping these young and inexperienced workers safe on the construction site.

Young workers are not only inexperienced but usually eager to please and naive to the potential risks on construction sites which often puts them at a greater risk. That is why inspectors from both safety agencies visited construction sites as part of the Cross Border Construction Program to help keep them injury free.

The program operates at three locations on the Victoria-NSW border annually helping construction employers learn more about the similarities and differences between work health and safety regulations in each state.
