Building safety blitz targets Illawarra worksites

This week, NSW Fair Trading and SafeWork NSW inspectors will join forces during a compliance blitz targeting construction sites in the Illawarra region.

Executive Director Compliance Matt Press, said the program aims to ensure compliance with safety regulations and quality standards.

“Builders need to understand that serious injury and death is not an acceptable part of getting the job done, and when consumers are making one of life’s biggest investments, we expect high standards of work,” Mr Press said.

“NSW Fair Trading Inspectors will verify if tradespeople are licensed appropriately and will audit buildings for non-compliance or early signs of major defects.”

Mr Press said the two agencies will remain in the Illawarra after the compliance blitz and will carry out similar inspection programs across the State.
