Approximately 6,000 infringement notices have been issued for non-compliant scaffolding in the 10 years since the current WHS commenced – leading to around $150,000 in fines.
As of July 1st, new rules around scaffolding have come through in respect to protecting the lives of Queensland construction workers – to reduce risk of falls, improve safety and minimise risk. More information here. 👉https://bit.ly/3r756g5.
