Workplace health and safety should be the main priority on every construction site, however taking into account the number of workplace fatalities that have occurred in the industry this year, this does not seem be the case.
The construction industry has lost 9 workers on the job this year so far and we’re only half way through the year. Last year a total of 11 construction workers were killed on the job.
Accross all sectors, 56 Australian workers were killed on the job this year, at a cost of $61.8 billion to the nation’s economy. But the real cost is to the many families whose loved ones will not be returning home because of accidents at work.
