Stay informed on the legal and safety guidelines for residential building in Australia

Every time you enter any worksite it's important to understand the rules and regulations that apply to building homes safely. These can differ from state to state, so it is vital for you to stay across the national rules and state-specific changes or variations to the legislation, wherever you are.

Building near water, gas or electrical pipelines all have specific challenges, risks and rules associated. Compliance with these regulations is absolutely crucial for any builder or building professional in Australia.There are also other factors such as building adjacent to trees which could cause immediate or future issues on the site.
