Posted by Nicole Stevens

Construction companies and their employees are being urged to attend a Health and Safety Executive (HSE) seminar to brush up on their workplace safety obligations.

The HSE will advise attendees of the Working Well Together event, which will be held at Oatridge College, Broxburn, next Tuesday (February 22nd), on how to address workplace risk during refurbishment and restoration projects.

Attendees are likely to be reminded of the importance of warning signs and construction signs - as well as the potential health hazards posed by falls from height and asbestos.

Aimed primarily at small and medium-sized enterprises - as well as self-employed builders - the event will focus on offering practical advice to minimise risks quickly and efficiently without cutting corners.

HSE principal inspector Iain Brodie said: "I'd urge anyone who feels nervous about the prospect of an inspector arriving on their site to come along and brush up on best practice."

On February 14th, the HSE launched a construction safety crackdown in the UK.ADNFCR-2754-ID-800411823-ADNFCR
