A free event offering guidance on keeping workers safe, such as the use of health and safety signs, will take place for construction leaders in Cumbria this week.

Organised by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), the day is part of the Working Well Together Initiative, a partnership between the regulator and the construction industry, aimed at improving health and safety in the sector.

Figures from the HSE show that workers in the industry suffered 653 serious injuries while working over the past five years.

The event, held at Durranhill Industrial Estate, will offer practical demonstrations and presentations, covering working at height, manual handling, transport, asbestos, groundwork, dust suppression, confined spaces, personal protective equipment, tidy sites and decent welfare.

"Construction is one of Britain's most dangerous industries so we want to do all we can to offer support and advice to construction company bosses and self-employed workers in Cumbria," Mark Cottriall, the HSE's principal inspector for construction in Cumbria, said.

The event takes place tomorrow (Friday November 12th) at Zeras Industries on Durranhill Industrial Estate.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800229741-ADNFCR
