Workers injured when concrete pipe toppled over

22nd October 2018

Two workers in an excavation have been injured when a 1350mm diameter concrete stormwater pipe toppled over. 

Excavation work introduces a number of risks that must be managed, including the risk of people working in the excavation being crushed by unrestrained or inadequately restrained pipes. Workplace Health and Safety QLD discuss control measures to prevent unrestrained or inadequately restrained objects in the excavation from toppling over.

Workplace safety in spotlight this October

2nd October 2018

A moment is all it takes for an injury to happen at work and change the course of a worker’s life.

A moment is also how long it takes to report a safety hazard before it becomes an issue. To ensure a worker has the right training and supervision to do their job. To ask a work mate if they are ok. To speak up for safety in the workplace.

October is Safe Work Month and all employers and workers are encouraged to take a moment to reflect on their workplace safety culture and to ensure safety is the key focus each and every day.
