INNOVATIVE COMMUNICATION WITH LOCAL CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY (ACT)

Minister for Workplace Safety and Industrial Relations, Mick Gentleman MLA, today launched the first of a series of safety videos that will be sent directly to the mobile phones of local construction workers.  “Communicating with construction workers about health and safety issues has its challenges given the nature of their work.  These short videos, that use local tradies, provide safety tips and regulatory compliance information directly to those in the industry. They will be very useful in ‘toolbox talks’ that are regularly held on site,” Minister Gentleman said. Text messages with embedded video links developed by Access Canberra, and the Housing Industry Association will be distributed directly to the mobile phones of about 8000 construction occupation licence holders in the ACT.
