Concrete pumping

Concrete pumping is a widely used process in the construction industry.

Cranes

Operating cranes is complex and dangerous and workers must have the necessary skills and capabilities to do it safely.

Demolition

Demolition work is when you knock down or dismantle a structure or part of a structure that is load-bearing or somehow related to the physical integrity of the structure.

Elevating Work Platforms

Elevating work platforms (EWPs) are mobile items of plant designed to lift or lower people and equipment by a telescopic, hinged or articulated device, or combination of these, from a base support. 

Excavation

Excavation work generally involves removing soil or rock from a site to form an open face, hole or cavity using tools, machinery or explosives.

Licences

Migrant workers

In Australia, the law says that your employer (your boss) must do all they can to make sure your job does not hurt you or make you sick. This law is called work health and safety (WHS) or occupational health and safety (OHS).

Plant design, supply and registration

Plant includes any machinery, equipment, appliance, container, implement and tool, and includes any component or anything fitted or connected to those things.

Quad bikes

Every year, quad bikes are a major cause of death and serious injury in rural workplaces, with many incidents associated with rollovers.

Safe design

Safe design is about integrating hazard identification and risk assessment methods early in the design process to eliminate or minimise risks of injury throughout the life of the product (including buildings, structures, equipment and vehicles) being designed.

Scaffolding

A scaffold is a temporary structure erected to support access or working platforms. Scaffolds are commonly used in construction work so workers have a safe, stable work platform when work can’t be done at ground level or on a finished floor.

Tunnelling

Tunnelling work includes constructing a tunnel and supporting systems and associated temporary work.

Volunteers

Everyone has a right to be safe at work, including volunteers. Volunteers play a vital role in communities across Australia and make significant contributions by carrying out unpaid work for a variety of organisations every day.
