Construction Workers

Are drugs getting on top of you? Does your drinking worry you? Are you safe at work?

Across the country workers are putting their hands up to get back in control of their lives and to get the support they need. They want to safeguard their families, their jobs and their future.Everybody comes to work expecting to go home at the end of the day. If you think you won’t be able to work safely, don’t put yourself and others at risk. Don’t go to work.

If you think someone you’re working with isn’t able to work safely then speak directly to them or your OHS delegate or Shop Steward. By looking after each other, we can keep workplaces safe for everyone.
