Young Workers in Construction under the Spotlight

This week will see the start of a cross border construction inspection at Echuca and Moama, focussing on young workers.

Work health and safety inspectors will be visiting sites on both sides of the border from 21 to 25 November and will be paying particular attention to young workers’ safety.

Inspectors will be highlighting the similarities between work health and safety laws in Victoria and NSW.

As SafeWork NSW Director, Regional and Response Operations, Tony Williams said thousands of young workers are entering the region’s workplaces for the first time and there is a major need to focus on safety in the construction sector, particularly because young workers are not only inexperienced but eager to impress.
