A new guide has been published by the construction industry in an attempt to reduce the number of workplace accidents and improve health and safety in the sector.

Despite the efforts of the Health and Safety Executive and other bodies, construction remains one of the most common professional sectors to have occupational deaths that occur as a result of construction accidents and illnesses.

During the Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) construction inspection initiative officers issues more than 200 warnings to construction sites and firms, and it is hoped that the new rules will be abided by and help prevent the number of workplace accidents.

New Health and Safety Guide: Construction Sites UK

The new health and safety guide comes from the Construction Industry Advisory Committee (ConIAC) Health Risks Working Group and formatted with the assistance of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH). Practical health guidance and risks in the workplace are all discussed in the guide in an attempt to reduce the injuries in the sector.

Currently in the UK 100 people die from construction-related ill health in the UK. Less than half of construction workers also stay employed in the industry until they are 60. Experts have warned that despite the improving conditions of many construction sites too many are continuing to avoid improving health and safety, often belittling the efforts of health and safety organisations.
