Olympic safety campaign may highlight need for PPE like safety glovesPosted on 21/10/2009
A new campaign is being launched across the Olympic Park construction site to encourage workers to opt for good safety practices.
As part of the European Week for Safety and Health at Work, those working on the building project will be able to get involved in workshops and sessions covering personal safety issues, which might suggest the need for personal protective equipment (PPE) like safety gloves to be used when necessary.
Lawrence Waterman, head of health and safety at the Olympic Delivery Authority (ODA), commented that safety is a priority when it comes to the construction of the Olympic Park.
He said: 'This is a hugely complex project and one of the largest construction sites in Europe.
'To date, we have succeeded in setting high standards in health and safety and achieving a record that is better than the industry average.'
Meanwhile, the ODA recently announced that building work has begun, to improve the facilities that will be used for rowing events during the 2012 Olympic Games.
