As a full service regulator, one of the ABCC’s key priorities is education. In 2017-18, the ABCC undertook 171 presentations to more than 5,100 people aimed at better educating industry participants on their rights and responsibilities. Most of these presentations were undertaken by our staff on worksites throughout the country, highlighting our commitment to engaging first-hand with industry participants.

We also responded to 6,932 enquiries and requests for advice from workers, employers and their representatives.
