Safe Work Australia figures show that 28 Australian workers have lost their lives on the job in 2017, as at 27 February.
As construction workers we should be particularly alarmed given that six of these fatalities were from the construction industry, the second highest number of any industry, exceeded only by the transport, postal and warehousing sector which had 10 fatalities.
The latest incident involved a construction worker who was crushed by a falling steel beam in Sydney.
