Victorian employers and employees have been urged to prioritise safety following a horrific year during which 26 people were killed on the job.
We should all be working to make sure 2017 is a safer year than 2016 during which 7 people were killed in the construction sector.
The youngest person killed was 21 and the oldest 94.
There were 4 falls from height and 3 fatal electrocutions.
Employers and employees should prioritise safety from the start, so that all workers can get home safely at the end of the work day.
