A new initiative across Britain is aiming to improve the safety of construction sites.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is to carry out unannounced checks at sites where refurbishment or repair projects are already underway, in a bid to ensure high-risk activities are being managed accordingly.

It is hoped that the clampdown will emphasise that poor risk management are not just unacceptable, as they can cost lives. 

Heather Bryant, HSE chief inspector of construction, said: “This initiative provides a chance to engage with these firms to help them understand what they need to do, so they can put in place the practical measures needed to keep people safe.”

Ms Bryant added that robust action will be taken if evidence is found of workers being put at risk.

She explained that companies that do not adhere to the rules will feel the “full weight of the law”.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801633435-ADNFCR
