Worksafe ACT Inspectors to return to Denman Prospect


Worksafe ACT Inspectors are returning to Denman Prospect today as part of their ongoing work to ensure the construction industry is providing a safe working environment.

Following the commencement of Operation Safe Prospect in August, 174 workplaces have been visited, with 210 improvement notices issued, 62 prohibition and 14 infringement notices.

Workplace Safety Minister Mick Gentleman says unfortunately, they’re still seeing regular non compliance and minimal improvement across the industry.

Common issues including risk of falls from heights due to unsafe scaffolding, risk of slips and a lack of basic facilities such as toilets.
