More safety breaches identified at construction sites

Category: Capital Radio News

WorkSafe ACT has ordered one company to stop work after effectively shutting down 13 of its residential construction sites across Canberra.

The company, which hasn't been named, has been issued with a prohibition notice following a routine compliance inspection in Watson last week, as part of Operation Safe Prospect.

WorkSafe ACT has issued a range of other notices at various worksites in Watson, including six prohibition notices that closed down five sites owned by four different companies.

Work Health and Safety Commissioner Jacqueline Agius says it's an appalling number of safety concerns, which could easily have led to fatalities or injuries in our community.
