If you’re a tradie in Canberra, you’re working in the most dangerous place for construction work in Australia, according to a report by Safe Work.

The report which was published in October, indicated 23.8 claims for serious injury and disease per 1000 construction workers in 2015-16.The national average in that period was 16.

While The ACT did record the highest rate of claims in the industry over the past 5 years, there was actually a decrease of 16 per cent in that period.

In a press release, UnionsACT compared that figure to WorkSafe ACT compliance activities which was down by 84 per cent compared to 2014.

Secretary of UnionsACT, said WorkSafe ACT should focus on enforcing workplace safety laws and accountability for negligent employers.
