Hurricane and storm damage – Employer health and safety advice
2017 has been a record-breaking year for hurricane activity in the Atlantic Ocean, affecting the Caribbean and the west coast of the United States. The UK and Ireland also experienced violent weather from ex-hurricane Ophelia and Storm Brian so far this autumn.
With the UK winter approaching, in this Riskex News Review we consider the importance of storm risk management, both by employers and as individuals, and offer guidance from the HSE in Northern Ireland about health and safety precautions during the clean up of storm damage. This is important as a reminder to employers about the need for more stringent checks prior to resuming normal work activities, to minimise the risks to workers.
Riskex has teamed up with @SHPOnlineand a panel of our clients to host a webinar that will explore how technology is becoming increasingly important in managing Risk. Join us on 17th November for what promises to be an insightful event! Register here: https://www.shponline.co.uk/resources/aligning-technology-with-emerging-health-and-safety-risks/?cid=EXTTwitter
