New Scaffolding Industry Safety Standard Launched

SafeWork NSW has launched a new Scaffolding Industry Safety Standard to prevent work-related injuries and deaths.

NSW Fair Trading Eleni Petinos said this is an important step towards ensuring the safety of all workers.

"The Scaffolding Industry Safety Standard is an essential and comprehensive resource that provides practical guidance for those undertaking scaffolding work," Ms Petinos said.

"The Safety Standard complements the SafeWork NSW 'Speak Up, Save Lives' app, which allows for the anonymous reporting of workplace health and safety risks."

"Following the tragic death of Christopher Cassaniti just over three years ago, the NSW Government is seeking to ensure such a tragic incident never occurs again."
