A new OHS awareness campaign - with the catchy name Safe6 - aims to address the top six risks faced by construction workers involved in the Christchurch earthquake rebuild.

The Press reports the campaign is in response to Government and ACC warnings that unless more is done to address health and safety during the rebuild then multiple deaths and serious injuries can be anticipated over the next few years.

The top six hazards identified by the campaign are:

  • falls from heights;
  • electrical work;
  • operating vehicles;
  • exposure to asbestos;
  • confined spaces; and
  • personal threat.
