Safe Work Australia has some interesting information that sheds more light on the risks involved with housing construction. In 2014, they WorkCover NSW also released the  House Construction Industry Plan 2014 that aims to reduce various incidents and accidents on building sites.

“The plan aims to:

  • reduce deaths, injuries  and illnesses
  • reduce exposure to hazards  which cause injury  and disease
  • eliminate/minimise high risk hazards  by implementing higher level controls, and
  • ensure that  injured workers are protected and have sustained recovery and return to work arrangements”
