05 April 2016FWBC App now includes Building Code 2013!

FWBC is excited to launch the Building Code 2013 section on FWBC On Site!

FWBC On Site is a free app that provides industry participants with access to information and answers to common questions about their rights and responsibilities on building and construction sites.

The new Building Code 2013 section on FWBC On Site allows industry participants to complete a questionnaire that considers general compliance with the Building Code, and more specifically with the drug and alcohol requirements on site.  These compliance questionnaires are not intended to be a certificate of compliance or FWBC legal advice.  Rather, the questionnaires are to help industry participants to gain an understanding of how the Building Code applies to them.

FWBC General Manager Building Code, Cathy Cato, encouraged all building industry participants to update their FWBC On Site app or download the new version.

“Earlier this year FWBC moved to the third and final phase of implementing the Australian Government’s new Building Code requirements regarding drug and alcohol testing on building and construction sites,” Ms Cato said.

“With auditing of contractors’ fitness for work policies now well underway, I urge everyone in the building industry to make themselves familiar with how the Building Code 2013 and the new drug and alcohol requirements impact them.”

Check out FWBC On Site and work your way through the new Building Code 2013 information.  Simply open the App, choose Employer; Employee; Site Manager; or Union official, and navigate your way through the new Building Code pages.

FWBC On site is available on any iOS or Android device and can be downloaded for free from the AppStore and Google Play Store. Participants can directly contact FWBC at any time during the questionnaire if further assistance is required.

Any questions can be directed to the FWBC Hotline on 1800 003 338 from 7 am – 5 pm Monday to Friday.
