Amenities on construction sites

Sometimes the amenities provided on construction sites are appalling - and this is not good enough.  Under Section 21 of the OHS Act, the employer must:

'provide, so far as is reasonably practicable, adequate facilities for the welfare of employees at any workplace under the management and control of the employer'

WorkSafe Victoria has issued a Guidance Note which specifically addresses amenities on civil construction sites:Provision of amenities on mobile and short term civil construction sites (nb: looking for link on new site)
