Pro-Visual publishing has released its Queensland Construction Guide to Site Safety., designed to increase awareness of major health and safety issues within the Industry.

This year's edition of the guide outlines the new Work Health and Safety Act 2011 which will take effect from the first of January 2012 along with a new set of National Model Regulations and Codes of Practice.

The new laws and guidance material represent the most significant change in Health and Safety Legislation in Queensland since the introduction of Robens-style legislation in 1989.

Additionally the guide provides important information on the Model Regulations, which are scheduled to be finalised August 2011 and will replace the Workplace Health and Safety Regulation 2008.

The information included in this year's edition is vital for everyone in the Queensland construction industry to be aware of.
