Prevent Falls Through Stair Voids
“Falls through stair voids on house construction sites have been identified as one of the four major safety issues on house construction sites” as stated by Peter Dunphy, acting General Manager of Work Cover’s Health & Safety Division.
Work Cover’s study revealed that falls are one of the leading causes of death and serious injury in the workplace, with over 150 workers seriously injured or killed on construction job sites in the past two years.
In a campaign to reduce the number of incidents of injury and death, Work Cover launched a video targeted towards local builders and sub-contractors in a bid to prevent falls through stair voids.
If you work in construction, watch this video safety alert to learn more about the simple steps you can take to keep yourself and your workers safe around voids.
