HSE guidance for construction site safety

Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has launched a new guide to preventing
workplace deaths in the construction industry.

HSE figures show the number of workplace deaths has dropped, construction is
still the worst offender with 79 deaths in the past 12 months.

guidance is now available on the Working Well Together (WWT) website and
contains links to further information and HSE books.  

Myers, HSE’s chief inspector of construction, said the website was a
significant step forward in the provision of free, easy-to-follow information
for employers in the construction industry.
