Construction Safety Concerns at Dam

construction safety trainingConstruction on an important part of the Cotter Dam project has been halted following construction safety concerns. WorkSafe called for the emergency stop upon finding safety concerns with the construction workers for the dam wall.

WorkSafe stated that inspectors would investigate the site to determine if work could continue safely.WorkSafe prohibited concrete placement on the right-side of the dam all until they are satisfied that there is no longer a safety risk.

The Cotter Dam project is a $363 million project that has so far remained within budget regardless of a set of delays and obstacles it has been subjected to.

WorkSafe has ordered the site to improve in areas such as scaffolding, formwork, and other things. Most recently, WorkSafe had ordered the closure of a Fyshwick building after independent tests revealed that there was asbestos in the factor floors.
