HSE inspections, danger of diesel fumes, fall from “safe” scaffolding
In this Riskex News Review, we bring news of the HSE’s second phase of its construction site inspection programme, where they are focussing on a broad range of reminders to ensure the health and safety of workers is protected.
There has also been a recent focus on health warnings about diesel exhaust exposure, and this episode explains the risks, as well as actions that are being taken against employers who fail to minimise those risks.
In our final story, a worker is injured in a fall from scaffolding that was fraudulently declared safe, highlighting the vital importance of following proper procedure.
