With the recent Work Health & Safety (WHS) incidences widely reported on building sites around Sydney, WHS processes are under the microscope and Australia’s leading property developers are urgently reviewing safety procedures which could help further.
One such company is Toplace Group.
With currently 3000 apartments under construction across Sydney, including Skyview in Castle Hill, Jolyn Place in Rosebery, Pemberton on the Park in Botany, East Square in Mascot, Astral Apartments in Granville and The Grand in Kellyville, Toplace engages thousands of reputable and experienced subcontractors, consultants and suppliers making Work Place Health & Safety the biggest priority.
Toplace Group’s Construction Director Charbel Barakat, said the industry has suffered from a number of serious incidences in recent times, and better communications amongst non-English speaking workers has been identified by Toplace to go a long way towards alleviating the situation.
On 20 June 2019, Toplace will set an example and serve a reminder to the industry that Work Health & Safety education can be communicated directly by the developers to its community of workers and beyond.
As a start, Toplace is holding a seminar to promote safety awareness on construction sites and setting out workplace strategies to avoid danger. This seminar will be delivered by experts in their field to educate, avoid injuries and make construction sites as safe as possible. The target audience is the Arabic-speaking community to assist in overcoming language barriers faced on site.
Toplace Group will be joined by Mates in Construction, Foundation House, The Jonah Group, SafeWork and other guest speakers who will provide insights to educate and promote safety in the industry.
