SafeWork NSW has a plan to lower construction fatalities in the state.

The plan aims to reduce work related deaths by 30 per cent and injuries and illnesses by 50 per cent over the next 5 years.

Minister for Better Regulation Matt Kean said the plan isn’t about numbers alone, it’s about people.

Mr Kean said NSW has already exceeded national targets, with workplace deaths falling by 35 per cent. He said that while the outcome is good, even one death or injury is too many.

The issue is particularly relevant given that NSW is in the middle of its biggest road and rail construction boom in the nation’s history.Worker safety needs to remain the main focus.

It’s crucial that all workers in construction have completed general construction induction training also known as The White Card course, to ensure they know how to work safely on a construction site.
