Safety Guide for Construction Sites

Construction Industry Guide to Site Safety (VIC) 2013

Press Release: January 2013

Pro-Visual publishing has released the latest edition of Victoria’s Construction Industry Guide to Site Safety. Each year, the guide is distributed at no cost to construction companies throughout the state of Victoria with the aim to increase awareness of major health and safety issues within the industry. The contents of this recent guide has been researched and written by the Master Builders, ensuring that every section contains up-to-date and detailed information of the highest standard. However, unlike previous editions this year’s guide focuses solely on Plant in and around construction sites and the major risks associated with its use. Plant, whether static or mobile, plays a significant role in the way construction work is undertaken on sites around Australia.

Although the introduction of plant has made vast improvements to the efficiencies of some construction activities, plant has also led to a number of incidents that involve the injury or fatality of people and in some cases significant damage to other plant or structures. This guide highlights some of the most common injuries and guidelines to prevent and manage usage of site equipment, machinery and anything fitted or connected to these.

The construction industry, the WHS regulator, and industry stakeholders all have a vested interest in making the use of plant on construction sites, as safe as reasonably practicable through the preparation and implementation of procedures and practices which meet and in some cases exceed the requirements of the Work Health and Safety legislation, and as such ensuring that each worker goes home safely at the end of their shift.


Recipients of the guide are also provided with the opportunity to enter a competition in which the best entry wins $5,000! Pro-Visual Publishing also produces Construction Safety Guides for New South Wales, Queensland and Western Australia. Additional copies of these charts are also available upon request.
