Build Aware - coming to Ballarat

April 14, 2019

HIA has been advised by the Victorian Government that the Build Aware program is continuing. Government agencies work together as part of the Build Aware program to raise awareness and ensure that people working on sites understand their obligation to comply with building, construction, environment, plumbing, and occupational health and safety laws and regulations.

The next Build Aware event is taking place from Monday 6 May to Friday 10 May in Ballarat. As part of this program, inspectors from five different government regulators will visit sites in these regions to check that they are complying with the relevant laws and regulations.

Members can view more information about the five different regulators on their websites:

These regulators usually hold a trade breakfast on the Friday before the inspections start, which would be Friday 3 May, where builders can come along to speak to the regulators and/or find out more about the Build Aware program.  Details about that breakfast should be available on the regulator websites soon.

For further information on this program, please call 1300 650 620 to speak with a HIA Workplace Adviser.
