HSE commencing construction site inspections across the UK
Starting on Monday 3 October 2022, the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) are commencing construction site inspections across the UK.
As part of a health inspection initiative, construction sites are being targeted to raise awareness of health and safety issues surrounding the moving and handling of materials.
This initiative is supported by the ‘Work Right Construction: Your health. Your future’ campaign.
The HSE inspections will be checking that employers and workers know the risks, plan their work and are using sensible control measures to protect workers from injuries and aches.
This includes pain and discomfort in joints, muscles and bones known as musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).
If you require any assistance in managing the risks, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with a member of our team.
