The Cross Border Construction program run by WorkSafe Victoria and SafeWork NSW has been extended following a successful 3 years, benefiting workers on both sides of the border.
The program started in June 2013 resulted in 419 construction sites being visited by inspectors from NSW and Victoria.
Inspectors enlightened workers and employers about their obligations and revealed to them the similarities between work in the 2 states.
The outcome of the program was that it improved safety and will now focus on young workers.
The program’s next phase will begin on Monday, 29 August, in the Mulwala/Yarrawong, Cobram/Barooga regions.
