Proposal for Jobs and Skills Summit
Ahead of the Jobs and Skills Summit, the Australian Constructors Association released details of a new ratings initiative to unlock massive productivity gains throughout the construction industry. The initiative called the Future Australian Infrastructure Rating (FAIR) proposes the Federal Government use its buying power to drive outcomes that will see projects delivered within the confines of today’s constrained labour market while charting a more sustainable course for the industry that currently accounts for a quarter of all insolvencies.
On 1 September 2022, the Australian Constructors Association addressed the Jobs and Skills Summit. Speaking about the opportunity for the construction industry to create safe, fair and productive workplaces, Australian Constructors Association CEO Jon Davies said there is a lot the industry should be proud of and yet the industry could be so much better.
