Murumbidgee and Lowbidgee WHS Compliance

Project Overview

Ertech was awarded two contracts for the design and construction of weir and regulator elements for the two valley areas. These awards were a result of Water NSW identifying many Work, Health and Safety non-conformances in the valleys. These potential hazards include slips, trips and falls, environmental and physical hazards, static and mobile plant and equipment, manual handling and working at height hazards.

The Murrumbidgee Project included the design and construct elements of 10 weirs and regulators covering a 400km diameter footprint from Leeton in eastern NSW to Balranald Town in western NSW.
