SA launching falls prevention awareness campaign

SafeWork SA is launching a safety campaign to raise awareness of the dangers involved when working at height.

The campaign dubbed 'April No-Falls' aims to remind businesses that fall prevention is everyone's responsibility.

SafeWork SA says falls from height are a leading cause of death and serious injury in Australian workplaces, accounting for 11% of fatalities.

SafeWork SA said, "throughout April, we will be publishing injury and compliance information to help inform duty holders about the industries, workers and activities most at risk of a fall from height."

"To launch this campaign, we have released our 2021 campaign report on the recent compliance audits undertaken on the residential construction sector."
