10 construction workers killed in 2015

Statistics from Safe Work Australia show 10 construction workers have been killed while at work since the beginning of this year. Over the last ten years, the construction industry has featured among industries with the highest number of workplace deaths in Australia.
The industry recorded a total of 29 deaths in 2014, 12 more than the number recorded in the previous year.
Over the period 2003 to 2013, 401 workers employed in the construction industry died from injuries sustained at work. And according to the Work-related Injuries and Fatalities in Construction, Australia, 2003 to 2013 report from Safe Work Australia, this equates to 36 workers per year and is 15% of all worker fatalities. All but four of these workers were men.
Nearly half (46%) of the worker fatalities in the construction industry involved people working as technicians & trade workers. This was followed by labourers (28%) and machinery operators & drivers (21%). There were 22 fatalities over the 11 years that did not involve workers in these three occupations
The Australian Work Health and Safety Strategy 2012–2022 identifies the construction industry as a priority industry for action due to the high number and rate of work-related injuries and illnesses and inherent risks associated with working in the industry.
National targets under the Strategy are to reduce the incidence of serious injury by at least 30 percent by 2022 and to reduce the number of work-related fatalities due to injury by at least 20 percent. The construction industry will play an important role in meeting these targets according to the Safe Work Australia 2013 report.
