SafeWork NSW says a 12 month construction blitz focusing on reducing falls from heights has been successful and has improved work from height safety and compliance.

During the course of the year inspectors visited 1000 sites around the state, following a high rate of fatalities in 2017 and a spike in falls.

Inspectors embarked on a concentrated education campaign and provided rebates for small businesses.

More than $86,000 in rebates has been given out to 186 small businesses.

Inspectors also issued on-the-spot fines for non-compliance.

A focus on work from height safety will continue this year.
