Businesses in the ACT have been reminded by Work Safety Commissioner Greg Jones to make safety the top priority this year.
He added that there can be pressure to get jobs done that weren’t completed at the end of last year or to make up for the time lost over the holidays or for workers to take on different roles and responsibilities which could all impact safety.
Workers in hot environments or outdoors such as construction workers need to be particularly cautious as temperatures remain high.
He urged construction employers to ensure workers are properly trained and supervised, especially young workers, apprentices and new workers.
