CPB Contractors supported the development of new safety systems and then made them compulsory.
Mobile Elevated Work Platforms (known as MEWPs) can assist in making working at heights safer, however, they can introduce serious additional workplace hazards.
In 2014, CPB Contractors, together with EIC Activities, another member of the CIMIC Group, began conducting research and development into safety systems to prevent injuries to occupants of scissor-type MEWPs. This involved collaborating with the CSIRO, UTS and Premier Rock Machinery. It also included collaborating with industry associations like the Elevating Work Platform Association of Australia and the International Powered Access Federation to encourage suppliers to develop secondary safety systems.
