Cumbria construction workers to receive safety event

29th June 2010 | Construction Signs

Construction workers in Cumbria will be able to receive the latest professional health and safety advice at a special event tomorrow (June 30th).

Health and Safety Executive (HSE) figures show that a serious injury occurs on the county's building sites every three days, underlining the importance of safety signs.

As a result, the body is heading to Cockermouth to help employees who are still working hard to rebuild the town following the devastating floods there last year.

The event will focus on the safety aspects involved in asbestos, working at height, working in confined spaces, skin conditions, dust suppression and personal protective equipment.

"There's a huge amount of building work taking place in Cockermouth at the moment to help the town get back on its feet," said Robin Gonard, an HSE construction inspector in Cumbria.

"We want to make sure the work is being carried out safely, without any serious injuries."

The event will take place between 07:30 and 12:30 BST at the Sheep and Wool Centre, which housed 100 evacuees during the devastating floods in Cockermouth last November.
