Improving the health and safety of those within the construction industry is an ongoing concern when one considers the still high accident statistics. The HSE states that: “There have been significant reductions in the number and rate of injury over the last 20 years or more. Nevertheless, construction remains a high risk industry. Although it accounts for only about 5% of the employees in Britain it accounts for 27% of fatal injuries to employees and 10% of reported major injuries.”
Construction companies require useful and pragmatic tools to help them comply with their legal duties and to improve overall health and safety issues ensuring they are managed throughout the construction process. One such tool is the bestselling Construction Health and Safety Manual written by Construction Industry Publications Ltd. All the content is reviewed and updated and the text is monitored by an editorial panel of health and safety experts ensuring that this one-stop-shop will assist in compliance and the safety of your site.
