WA Construction Site Safety Guide 2015 – Released

construction guideSafety is one of the most important issues within the construction industry. To increase awareness of safety issues in construction sites, Pro-Visual Publishing, in collaboration with the Master Builders association of Western Australia, has released their newest edition of the WA Construction site Safety Guide. This Guide highlights risk factors that workers face in the industry and provides essential information on best ways to ensure safety on a work site.

Topics on this year’s Guide include masonry and concrete cutting and drilling which outlines the risks that workers might face when using concrete cutting equipment. It is important that employers have developed an effective workplace safety policy that ensures the risk of injury or harm from concrete and masonry cutting and drilling is reduced.



The 2015 edition also outlines the importance of Safety Management Plans where there are five or more persons working on a construction site. The person with control of the construction project must ensure that the plan is monitored, maintained and kept up to date for the duration of the work. Inspecting the workplace is another topic that explores common hazards that exists in the construction site such as chemicals and harmful substances, electricity, forklifts, manual handling, slips and trips, working at heights, new and young workers and machinery guarding.

“I would like to thank all of the sponsors of the WA Construction Site Safety Guide 2015. Their support has made it possible for the guide to be distributed free of charge”, said John Hutchings, CEO, Pro-Visual Publishing.
