ATTENTION: Victorian Mobile Crane Operators

Recently WorkSafe inspectors attended three serious incidents where heavy machinery at construction sites had overturned, landing on occupied residential houses.

Starting in August, WorkSafe Victoria will be conducting a targeted blitz on hydraulic mobile cranes operating on construction sites.

With the increased use of heavy plant in the housing construction sub-sector, incidents often occur when builders and contractors using this plant are unfamiliar with identifying hazards and implementing suitable risk control measures.
