HSE to target UK construction sites

February 18, 2013 | Comments (0)

From today the UK Health and Safety Executive is targeting unsafe practices including working at height on construction sites where refurbishment or repair works are taking place. The month-long national initiative is hoped to reduce death, injury and ill health.

Between 18th February and 15th March, inspectors will make unannounced visits to construction sites to ensure they are properly managing high-risk activities such as working at height. It will also check for general good order, assess welfare facilities and check whether suitable PPE such as head protection, is being used appropriately.

Philip White, HSE chief inspector of construction, said: “Death and injury continue to result from avoidable incidents and it is largely those engaged in refurbishment and repair work who are failing to step up to the mark. Poor management of risks and a lack of awareness of responsibilities is unacceptable."

"In many cases simple changes to working practices can make all the difference, and can even save lives. Therefore if we find evidence that workers are being unnecessarily put at risk we will take strong action. We are determined to drive the message home that site safety and worker welfare cannot be compromised.”
