Secure your Site for the Easter Break and Anzac Day 


With Easter fast approaching, it is a timely reminder of your obligations in ensuring your building site is secure. When no one is around, a building site might be an enticing place for kids to explore, vandals to target or provide opportunists a chance to pick up any loose items. A building site, irrespective of the stage of the works, can be a dangerous place.  As the builder, you are also deemed to be the person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU) and therefore the person responsible for ensuring that the site is as safe and secure as reasonably practicable, to prevent any loss or injury to any person whilst there are no works being undertaken.

Simple tips such as ensuring your site fencing is secure or locking loose items in the garage or off-site might be simple yet effective measures to mitigate any risk to you.  Also, it may be worth reminding your client that there is to be no unauthorised access to site during this period, in accordance with your building contract.  Whilst you cannot entirely remove risks, you should do what you can to mitigate them. Need more information, the Workplace Relations and Legal team are here to assist.
