National Safe Work Month.

Dig It Civil, along-side Safe Work Australia, celebrated National Safe Work Month this month. National Safe Work month is an initiative sponsored by Safe Work Australia, recognising that the construction industry is one of Australia’s highest risk industries for injuries and accidents. Dig It Civil in conjunction with Safe Work Australia took this opportunity to demonstrate our commitment to building a safe and healthy workplace for all our staff, customers and workers.
Over the past four years, around 30,000 workers were injured on NSW construction sites because of unsafe work practices. At Dig It we’re dedicated to decreasing workplace injuries and increasing awareness of health and safety issues in the construction industry.

Dig It Civil recently undertook a large renovation job alongside Critharis constructions at Chamberlin Avenue  Vaucluse,  Critharis constructions wanted to change the external look of this building but keep the main structure.  

Dig it was contracted to demolish the planter boxes with an excavator and dig out the soil so they could change the shape of the planter boxers from a curved shape to a give it a straighter and more modern look.

Take a look at our team at work here.
