Work From Heights Safety Blitz Commences

The work from heights safety blitz currently underway in NSW will target employers, particularly construction employers who put workers at risk.

Employers must ensure they take the necessary precautions to protect workers from fall risks as inspectors will be visiting sites around the state over the next year.

The blitz comes after 8 people were killed on work sites this year due to falls and dozens more were seriously injured. The rate of fall injuries has increased alarmingly over the past few years.

In a press release recently Safe Work said inspectors would be taking advantage of the state’s tough new laws that came into effect in November. The new laws permit inspectors to issue spot fines of up to $3600 to offenders.
