Release of Biannual Data Analysis and an Updated Reporting Pack

Biannual Report July to December 2009

The Office of the Federal Safety Commissioner (OFSC) has released a report based on OHS data collected from accredited companies for the July to December 2009 biannual reporting period.

The report shows the Australian Government Building and Construction OHS Accreditation Scheme (the Scheme) is growing rapidly with the number of companies accredited under the Scheme increasing by 35 per cent in the 12 months since the December 2008 reporting period. Over the same time, the number of projects reported under the Scheme increased by 78 per cent.

The performance of accredited companies continues to be encouraging with the median LTIFR for projects falling to its lowest recorded level of 2.51 LTI's per million hours worked.

The top three notifiable incidents accounted for 73% of all incidents in the reporting period. These incidents related to mobile plant, electrical and fall from heights.

Performance Comparison Tool (PCT)

Along with the biannual report, the OFSC has also updated the Performance Comparison tool with the latest biannual data. The PCT enables companies to better understand where they stand in terms of OHS performance within the Scheme.

The Performance Comparison Tool is available on the Performance Comparison page of this website.
