Are you managing the risk of falling from a fragile roof in your workplace?

We would like to remind members about the risks of falls when working on fragile roof structures after two recent incidents in South Australia.

In December 2019, a worker was fatally injured after falling 6.5 metres when removing corrugated iron roof sheets. More recently, SafeWork SA inspectors attended an incident where a contractor sustained serious injuries after falling more than 4 metres through asbestos guttering.

In WA, the WA Code of Practice for Prevention of Falls in Workplaces applies.

If you have any questions about this Code of Practice and your obligations, please contact NECA Safety on (08) 6241 6100.
