As we look forward to closing for Christmas, let’s ensure we don’t let our guard down when it comes to safety on the work site, as this time of the year is known for a spike in workplace injuries.

WorkCover Queensland is urging all employers to ensure the safety of their workers in the lead-up to the year-end holidays.

Barbara Martin, WorkCover Queensland Executive – Priority Industries, said injury claims tend to rise around this time of year because people rush to get jobs done before Christmas and after a busy year, most people are worn out which leads to loss in concentration.

She also advised employers hiring temporary workers to cover for employees taking leave to ensure they receive the necessary safety inductions and training. Workers in the construction fields must have a valid White Card.
