These type of sites are said to be responsible for over half of the deaths which occur in the construction industry, which itself is one of the most dangerous areas of work.

HSE inspectors will be carrying out unannounced visits to these sites and looking in particular at working practices involving working at height, the maintenance and use of equipment as well as theĀ  risks of trips and falls due to cluttered walkways and working areas.

Further information on the HSE initiative can be found on the HSE website.

Hopefully the proactive approach by the HSE will lead to prevention of accidents in the construction workplace for employees.
