Workplace Health and Safety has been a high priority in Australia for many years and when it comes to contractors, using a company that’s compliant is crucial for your protection, as well as theirs.
A lot of the jobs that contractors provide involve access to high-risk locations on property, as well as the use of equipment and chemicals that can cause personal injury and damage to property.
Most people have witnessed a trades person who acted carelessly by performing work whilst standing on the top rung of an unsecured ladder or working on a roof top without a harness or even using chemicals without any protective equipment.
If these types of reckless actions were to happen on your property by an un-compliant contractor, you could be held accountable in court if an accident was to occur.
So, when you are obtaining a quote from a contractor for work to be performed at your property, be sure to check that they are fully compliant and insured.
