Inspectors from WorkSafe WA will be visiting sites in the state to ensure employers and employees, particularly in the construction industry, are committed to work from height safety especially where scaffolding is involved.

Over the next 8 months inspectors will be visiting sites in Perth and regional areas focusing on slips and trips, falls from height and manual tasks.

WorkSafe inspectors last looked into scaffolding safety in 2009/2010 and will now examine whether improvements made during the last inspection program are continuing.

Inspectors will be focusing on scaffolding issues such as sole boards and base plates, ties, platforms, temporary ladders and the risks involved with  mobile scaffolding. They will also be paying close attention to the supply and hire of scaffolding. Inspectors will be using a checklist to ensure consistency.
