Safety Should be The Main Priority in 2018

With the 2018 work year in full swing, ACT businesses are being reminded to make safety their top priority.

Work Safety Commissioner Greg Jones says there are often factors in a new year that can increase risks on work sites, particularly on construction sites and wherever workers are exposed to hot environments or outdoor work.

Some of the things that can increase the risks in a new year include,

  • pressure to get work done that was not completed in 2017,
  • desire to make up for down time,
  • workers taking on new roles or responsibilities &
  • new workers entering the worksite.

My Jones emphasised the importance of a strong safety focus in 2018, this includes ensuring workers have received the necessary safety training, including mandatory white card training as well as site specific and task specific training. He also reminded employers to ensure adequate supervision of new, young and apprentice workers.
