Greater risks in construction

Thursday, 28 February 2008 ( #349 ) - Australia
The Federal Safety Commissioner has released a report showing the rate of fatalities in the construction industry is significantly higher than for other industries.

FSC Tom Fisher describes the building and construction industry's OHS performance as completely unacceptable.

The statistics demonstrate that the building and construction industry is not achieving the level of OHS improvements, particularly in relation to fatalities, that other industries are achieving.

Dave Noonan, national secretary of the Construction and General Division of the Construction, Forestry, Mining & Energy Union (CFMEU), recently spoke out on the "completely unacceptable level of carnage amongst construction workers which needs to be addressed with urgency".
