WorkSafe WA has announced it will be undertaking a proactive inspection program relating to scaffolding across Western Australia.

Several falls from height resulting in injury and death have occurred in the construction industry over the last few years. This inspection program will focus on the safety practices in place and how they can be made safer to reduce the level of incidents occurring.
 
Inspectors will pay particular attention around the supply and hire of scaffolding, slips and trips, falls from height and manual tasks. The construction industry will play a major part in the program however inspectors will be looking at any workplace that contains scaffolding.
