London construction firms receive safety roadshow
Construction firms in London are being given special advice about the importance of safety measures such as warning signs, it has been confirmed.
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) commenced a two-week 'White Van Roadshow' on Monday (June 14th), with inspectors visiting sites in Poplar, Bow, Hackney and Clapham.
Companies will be given advice and practical demonstrations on the risks from untidy sites, working at height, manual handling, transport, asbestos and other dust-related diseases.
The HSE decided to launch the initiative after recording 11 deaths and 1,553 injuries in the London construction industry in 2008-09.
HSE project manager Tim Shambrook said: "The White Van Roadshow is the perfect way to reach out to the industry and educate workers on how simple steps can prevent serious accidents.
"The aim of the tour is to be engaging and show construction workers that we understand the pressures of working on a construction site but that cutting corners when it comes to health and safety is never a good idea."
Construction sites are one of the most dangerous workplace environments in the UK, which is why the HSE urges firms to invest in the appropriate safety signs.
