Safety Alert: Fines for PCBUs Failing to Meet Silica Training Requirements

From 1 July, the ban on the supply, use and manufacture of engineered stone will come into effect in the ACT.

In the ACT, it is mandatory for those working with crystalline silica materials to undergo specific training. Recently, WorkSafe ACT has issued 27 infringement notices against PCBUs (Persons Conducting a Business or Undertaking) under WHS Regulation s418D (1) for failing to ensure workers completed the required crystalline silica awareness training. These fines total $128,400.00.

From today, 8 May, the ACT’s updated Formwork Code of Practice is now in effect!

WorkSafe ACT has updated its Working in the Sun webpage to give more information for PCBUs on how to manage UVR risks this summer.

From Wednesday 15 November 2023, the ACT is launching a new Code of Practice for Managing Risks of Silica Dust at work.
