HSE targets refurbishment sites to clamp down on health risks
Posted On: 22-09-2014
The Health and Safety Executive has today [September 22] announced a month-long clampdown on risks to health on refurbishment and repair sites across the UK.
Inspectors will visit sites to check that procedures are in place to avoid or control risks including the risk of falls from height. They will also be looking out for equipment, including ladders and scaffolding, which has not been properly installed, assembled or maintained.

Risks to health on construction sites: what will inspectors be looking for?

Inspectors on unannounced visits will consider whether: 
  • risks to health from exposure to dust such as silica are being controlled.
  • workers are aware of where they may find asbestos, and what to do if they find it
  • other health risks, such as exposure to noise and vibration, manual handling, hazardous substances are being properly managed
  • jobs that involve working at height have been identified and properly planned to ensure that appropriate precautions, such as proper support of structures, are in place
  • equipment is correctly installed / assembled, inspected and maintained and used properly
  • sites are well organised, to avoid trips and falls, walkways and stairs are free from obstructions and welfare facilities are adequate
