It seems the one thing the CFMEU and Master Builders Association can agree on is that a lack of co-operation is to blame for deteriorating workplace safety.

In an article on, the lack of co-operation between the groups was highlghted but each entity blames the other.

The disagreement between the 2 groups seems to have been spurred on by the release of statistics by Safe Work Australia which indicated a drop in the number of serious workplace injuries.

The rate of compensation claims is also down in the ACT with six claims last year for every million hours worked, which is a significant improvement from 3 years prior.
