One in four construction sites fail safety inspections

Posted in: Employer Negligence Workplace Injuries 

One in four of the construction sites visited in Essex, Norfolk and Suffolk during a month-long inspection initiative failed health and safety checks.

Inspectors visited the counties as part of a national Health and Safety Executive (HSE) clampdown aimed at reducing workplace death, injury and ill health.

A total of 17 of the 71 sites they inspected were found not to meet the minimum legal standards for health and safety, and 18 enforcement notices were issued as a result.

According to HSE figures, 19 workers were killed while working in construction across East of England during 2011/12 and a further 2,141 were seriously injured. Nationally, there were 49 deaths and more than 2,800 major injuries.

The purpose of the initiative is to remind those working in the industry that poor standards are unacceptable and could result in enforcement action.
