The construction industry has once again come in the top 3 highest risk industries for workplace fatalities, according to the latest Safe Work Australia figures.

According to Safe Work Australia, 120 Australians have lost their lives at work in 2017.

The industry with the highest number of workplace deaths was the transport, postal & warehousing industry with 47 fatalities followed by the agriculture, forestry & fishing industry with 27 fatalities. The construction sector came in third with 23 fatalities.

The construction sector is one of the most high risk industries across all states which is one of the reasons the federal government has mandated the White Card – general construction induction safety training to ensure everyone working on a construction site is aware of the hazards associated with this work and how to work safely on a construction site.
