Toolbox talks for tradies

Friday, 20 June, 2008

WorkCover NSW and the Housing Industry Association (HIA) have organised a series of Toolbox Talks to be held throughout 2008.

These onsite discussions for trade contractors cover important and relevant issues in the construction industry, including worksite safety.

The series kicked off to a good start with the Coral Homes Toolbox Talk held in the Hunter Valley in February. Almost 40 contractors from various trades participated in the discussion, which focused on safe work at heights to coincide with WorkCover NSW’s current fall prevention campaign.

“This is an example of how industry can work together to generate a cooperative environment between builders, contractors and WorkCover,” said HIA executive director Tim Mohr.
