RESEARCH INTO SAFETY CULTURE TO IMPROVE SAFETY FOR ACT CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY (ACT)
Minister for Workplace Safety and Industrial Relations, Rachel Stephen Smith, says a new research project to evaluate the safety culture within Canberra’s construction industry commenced today. This is part of an ongoing commitment from the ACT Government to improve safety on worksites and better support ACT construction workers. RMIT University will be undertaking independent research involving a survey of workers, employers and unions to understand what more can be done to improve safety in the industry. With recent tragic incidents on worksites in Canberra, it is especially important that we continue to work hard to improve safety measures and outcomes for all workers.
