Event aimed at highlighting areas of risk to site workers, opens at Persimmon Homes site in Scotland.
The Health and Safety Executive has launched the industry’s annual health and safety roadshow, aimed at highlighting areas of risk to site workers.
Health and safety commissioner Danny Carrigan launched the Working Well Together roadshow yesterday at a Persimmon Homes site in Scotland. The five-week nationwide scheme will visit large and small construction sites to promote cultural change on safety.
Carrigan said: “The Working Well Together roadshow aims to prevent injuries and ill health by delivering vital information and advice to construction workers on site. Construction is a killer industry, we must get these messages across to those who work in it.
The roadshow is sponsored by HSS Hire, Berkeley Homes, Bovis Lend Lease, Gleeson, Persimmon Group and Taylor Woodrow. It is also supported by the Federation of Master Builders, Scafftag, Constructing Excellence, the TUC and the HSE.
