HSE Safer Sites Targeted Inspections — Oct / Nov 2016

HSE Safer Sites Targeted Inspections — Oct / Nov 2016

HSE construction inspectors will be carrying out unannounced visits to sites where refurbishment projects or repair works are underway.

This year the Initiative is being undertaken as a series of two week inspections across the country, beginning 3 October 2016 ending 4 November 2016.

During this period inspectors will ensure high-risk activities, particularly those affecting the health of workers, are being properly managed.

These include:-

Where serious breaches of legislation are found then immediate enforcement action will be taken, but inspectors will also be taking steps to secure a positive change in behaviour to ensure on-going compliance.

Health and safety breaches with Clients and Designers will also be followed up to reinforce their duties under CDM2015 and to ensure that all dutyholders with on site health and safety responsibilities understand and fulfil these.

Follow the SaferSites Facebook page to see what inspectors find on site and keep updated throughout the initiative.

Our Team of Health & Safety Professionals regularly perform CDM Audits and Site Safety Inspections for major Clients and Contractors across the UK and are able provide pre-emptive checks for your reassurance prior to commencement of this HSE Initiative.
