Great to hear from John Barber & Mark Norris from Workplace Health & Safety Queensland who filled us in on scaffolding compliance issues they’re finding on Qld worksites as well as additional info on the 3 recent scaffolding related safety alerts issued by the regulator.
  1. SAA Safety Alert – Worker seriously injured by falling scaffold plank
  2. SAA Safety Alert – Plastic soleplates for scaffolds
  3. SAA Safety Alert – Fall risk with ring lock type scaffolding
Rhys Mirkin from RB Scaffolding joined us to show us his Sheet Pile & Edge Protection Bracket system.
Glenn Hanna, our insurance partners from HMD Insurance updated us on the launch of our group insurance facility, SAA Insure.
Tina Lung, Special Counsel from our Legal Partners, Hall & Wilcox, explained all of the amazing services that they can provide including the 24/7 Incident Response hotline exclusive to SAA Members as well as the 30 mins free legal advice.
Paul Trevethan from BL Physio taught us all about the body of a scaffolder and the importance of warming up before starting work, as well as ways to avoid injury in this highly labour intensive job!
And lastly our General Manager, Erryn O’Brien, updated us on the latest SAA News including our upcoming webinars, our Standards Australia Small Business Set for scaffolding companies, Australia’s best scaffolding project competition, our SAA promo gear for our RTO Partners as well as our upcoming events including the WHS Show in Sydney and our AGM in Melbourne!
