Spot Fines for Work From Height Safety Breaches on WA Sites

Employers in the ACT are being warned that WorkSafe ACT can now issue on-the-spot fines of up to $3600 to employers who ignore work from height safety.

This comes after 72 workers compensation claims were made in the ACT in the 2017-18 period, with many near misses also reported where appropriate safety precautions were not in place.

Employers must remember that even falls from relatively low heights can cause serious injury and in some cases, can prove fatal. Safety must remain the number one priority on all work sites.
