Nottinghamshire construction sites receive enforcement notices
A worryingly high number of construction sites in Nottinghamshire are failing to comply with health and safety best practice, it has been confirmed.
Inspectors from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) visited 66 sites over a two-day period as part of a new month-long initiative launched by the body.
Almost one in three sites failed their checks, with ten enforcement notices being issued in Nottingham itself and a further 11 being handed out elsewhere in the county.
"The majority of the construction sites our inspectors visited had good health and safety procedures in place," said Nic Rigby, the HSE's principal inspector of construction for Nottinghamshire.
"But the other sites are letting the rest of the industry down and putting workers' lives at risk."
Construction is one of the most dangerous industries for workers and HSE statistics reveal that there were 227 serious injuries at sites in Nottinghamshire last year.
As a result, companies are reminded to take their responsibilities seriously by conducting appropriate risk assessments and installing safety signs where appropriate.
