Project description

This project is working collaboratively with the Engineers Australia-convened Taskforce for Construction Safety, chaired by Leighton Holdings Chief Operating Officer, Bill Wild. The Taskforce seeks to reduce construction workplace accidents by creating the Guide to Best Practice for Safer Construction for the industry.

The Construction Innovation project is supporting the Taskforce by examining occupational health and safety practices at the design, procurement, construction and commissioning stages of built assets in order to develop The Guide and supporting implementation kit. This project brings together stakeholders across the supply chain of the project ensuring a whole-of-industry solution.
