The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has announced that it is to inspect a number of motor vehicle repairers' and body sprayers' premises in Dorset during October and November.

According to the HSE, the new inspection programme is part of the organisation's Work Well Dorset scheme.

It is hoped that the initiative will help reduce incidents of ill health related to potentially dangerous chemical substances - such as isocyanate paints.

The HSE will be looking out for inadequate health and safety signage, as well as other health and safety failings.

Councillor Don Collier, a member of the Champions Panel of Work Well Dorset, said: "The campaign is targeted at both employers and employees."

He noted that both have a responsibility to reduce the number of cases of ill health caused by exposure in the workplace.

Recently, the HSE announced that it was hosting a health and safety event for Scottish construction firms and their workers.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800111824-ADNFCR
