From Monday 4 October, the HSE are running a month-long inspection initiative supported by UKATA
HSE inspectors across the UK will be targeting construction firms to check that their health standards are up to scratch with the focus being on respiratory risks and occupational lung disease. The inspectors will be looking at the control measures businesses have in place to protect their workers lungs from construction dust including wood dust, silica, and asbestos.
The initiative will be supported by the HSE’s WorkRight campaign, aimed to influence employer behaviour by encouraging builders to download the free information and guidance the HSE have available, increasing knowledge and capability to protect health.
To continue to raise awareness around the dangers of asbestos, Logic Safety Solutions Ltd will be promoting the campaign on their social media platforms and will invite all their clients in the UK to join in on the conversation using WorkRight.
