WorkSafe Inspections Focus on Work From Heights

Prior to the Christmas holidays WorkSafe inspectors focused on the risk of falls during construction work when they visited sites across Victoria.

Last year there were 2 fatal falls from height at construction sites in the state and recently a plumber suffered life-threatening head injuries after falling approximately 3.3metres through a skylight at a home renovation site.

All construction employers were reminded that they cannot afford to be complacent about managing fall hazards.

WorkSafe promised to prosecute employers for failing to protect workers from falls, even in cases when nobody is injured.
