Your Duty as a PCBU

NSW Construction Site Safety Guide 2017 – Released

Falls from height is the number one cause of fatality or permanent disability in the Construction Industry. PCBUs must follow strict guidelines to ensure they are managing the risk of falls at the construction site.

Pro-Visual Publishing, in collaboration with Master Builders Association of NSW, has produced the 2016/17 edition of the NSW Construction Site Safety Guide, which explores working at heights and features interactive Augmented Reality (AR) content to illustrate the devastating incidents that could occur at your construction site if precautions are not taken to reduce the risks involved.

In addition to working at heights, the Guide also explores the risk of working in or around moving or mobile plant and electrical requirements and facts. This section of the Guides details PCBU obligations as per the Work Health and Safety Regulation 2011. By displaying the NSW Construction Site Safety Guide in your construction site, PCBUs should feel confident that they are abiding by their duties and obligations.

I would like to thank all of the sponsors of the NSW Construction Site Safety Guide 2016/17. Their support has made it possible for the Guide to be distributed free of charge” – John Hutchings, CEO, Pro-Visual Publishing.
