HSE to hold safety event for contractorsPosted on 24/04/2008
The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has announced that it is planning to hold a workplace safety awareness event for contractors next week.
Expected to take place on April 30th, the event is being held at Duchy College in Callington and is aimed at encouraging companies to promote safety issues to their suppliers.
Information on personal protective equipment may be included in the event, which is set to consider issues such as working from height and risk management.
Attendees will also hear about electricity safety and will be given the chance to discuss the subjects over lunch after the event.
It is believed that over 60 firms will attend the awareness day.
The HSE recently urged women to raise the issue of asbestos with sons or partners who work on construction maintenance projects.
A new campaign has been set up to raise awareness of the dangers of asbestos and encourages people to take precautions to protect themselves against the material.
