Construction Plant & Safe Work Methods
Construction Industry Guide to Site Safety (QLD) 2013/14 – Released
Regardless of the legal responsibilities, morally, no business, employer, or worker wants to see his or her employee or work colleague injured at work. Safety is important for all involved in the workplace, and this is especially important for those working with heavy machinery and plant equipment on construction sites. To increase awareness of current site safety rules and issues, Pro-Visual Publishing has released the newest edition of the Construction Industry Guide to Site Safety (QLD). This easy-to-read guide, supported by the Australian Constructors Association as well as the Australian Construction Industry Forum, is distributed to Queensland construction companies, workers and contractors; aiming to ensure that site safety is a priority for all involved in the construction project.
Whether on a commercial, industrial or housing construction project, there is usually some form of plant involved in the work. From the WHS legislation, plant includes any machinery, equipment, appliance, container, implement and tool; and includes any component or anything fitted or connected to any of these things. There are significant risks associated with using plant and severe injuries can result from the unsafe use of plant, it is therefore important to be informed and aware of how to operate, manage and monitor plant equipment safely and properly. Mobile plant safety is one of the key features of this year’s guide.
“I would like to thank all of the sponsors of the Construction Industry Guide to Site Safety (QLD) 2013/14. Their support has made it possible for the guide to be distributed free of charge”, said John Hutchings, CEO, Pro-Visual Publishing.
