Pocket Guide to Construction Safety

February 18, 2019

The Construction Industry is one of NSW's highest risk industries. Every year, too many workers are killed or injured on NSW construction sites.

The most common causes of serious injury of death on NSW construction sites are:

  • Falls from heights
  • Contact with electricity
  • Being hit by falling objects
  • Moving plant

SafeWork NSW's Pocket Guide to Construction Safety provides useful information for common health and safety issues on small construction sites relevant to New South Wales WHS Laws. It will help you manage health and safety of workers and others on and around your worksite. For a copy of the guide see SafeWork NSW Website
