NT WorkSafe accepts enforceable undertaking from tiling company

NT WorkSafe has accepted a proposed enforceable undertaking from A Darwin tiling company.

The company and its director were charged with breaching the Work Health and Safety (National Uniform Legislation) act over an incident in 2016 in which a young worker fell about 2.9 metres through a void, breaking his left femur.

The agreement will see the Darwin branch of RSPCA receive approximately $ 18,400 worth of tiling services aimed to reduce the accumulation of biohazards and reduce the risks of slips, trips and falls at the Darwin shelter.

This agreement will see the production of a video resource on fall protection for industry use and additional training for the company’s staff. The undertaking would require the director to present lessons learnt during the Work Health and Safety module of a career readiness program for graduates.

“A number of commitments will deliver an increase in knowledge and training to the company’s workers and the wider industry,” said NT WorkSafe Executive Director Stephen Gelding.

“This will build the capacity and capability of the Territory’s workforce.”

The company and its director will need to spend $ 34,460 on top of the $ 10,000 already spent to comply with all the commitments proposed in their undertaking.

A detailed list of the agreed activities of the enforceable undertaking is available on NT WorkSafe’s website.
