One of Australia’s biggest privately-owned construction companies and its subbies face huge fines for racking up a record number of alleged building site violations.
ADCO Constructions and several of their subcontractors were hit with 25 enforcement notices this week after Workplace Health and Safety inspectors swooped in on the $80 million Pimpama Sports Hub now being built on the Gold Coast.
Some of the alleged transgressions were so severe that work had to stop immediately on part of the job site.
They included dangerous storage of chemicals, risk of fall from heights, lack of traffic and plant management and non-maintenance of vital safety equipment such as fire extinguishers.
