QLD Construction Site Safety Guide 2016/17 – Released

construction guide 1According to Safe Work Australia, in 2015 there was a total of 18 fatalities in the Construction Industry. So far this year there have been another 18 fatalities. With the recent incident in North Sydney, where three workers were dangling inside the boom of a crane after it had collapsed on top of a building and a crane becoming jammed while trying to move a load 51-storeys high at Barangaroo Tower One, safety has proven to be vital when working at heights in the Construction Industry.

This year Pro-Visual Publishing, with the support of the National Safety Council of Australia Foundation, has released the QLD Construction Site Safety Guide with essential information and resources pertaining to working at heights.

Using the free Pro-Vis AR app, construction workers and managers can unlock a new dimension to education and a new way to absorb information. The app will help empower workers, in the QLD Construction Industry, in their attempts to increase awareness, engage, train and share experiences of safe work practices. The Pro-Vis AR app enhances traditional print media based information and provides a window for further interactivity and digitally accessible resources relevant to the QLD Construction Industry.

The 2016/17 edition of the Guide also covers:

· Overhead and underground electric lines.

· Asbestos risk management.

· Scaffolding safety.

“I would like to thank all of the sponsors of the QLD Construction Site Safety Guide 2016/17. Their support has made it possible for the Guide to be distributed free of charge.”
