20% of UK Construction Sites Fail Safety Checks

In a recent HSE survey nearly one in five construction sites failed safety checks during a national initiative to improve.

Inspectors targeted sites where refurbishment or repair work was being carried out as part of an annual, month-long drive across Britain with the aim of reducing the risk of death, injury and ill health.

The focus was on high-risk activity including working at height and ensuring sites were in 'good order', being clean and tidy with clear access routes.

Falls from height remain one of the most common causes of deaths and major injury and responsible for the largest proportion of enforcement notices 49%.



Builders should check the HSE guide Health and Safety in Roof Work, there really are no excuses.
