Every year many construction site workers are killed or injured as a result of their work; others suffer ill health, such as musculoskeletal disorders, dermatitis or asbestosis. The hazards are not, however, restricted to those working on sites. Other members of the public are also killed or injured because construction activities have not been adequately controlled.
Everyone that works in construction, including clients, designers, contractors and individual workers have a responsibility to identify hazards and control risks. It is important to plan, organise, control, monitor and review health and safety throughout the life of a project.
Whether you are starting out in your construction career or are a weathered professional, it is imperative to know the most current legislation and stay on top of your HSE knowledge.
