HSE targets developers

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has launched a new campaign aimed at the UK's property developers.

According to the organisation, the latest initiative has been created after it was revealed that many people developing small-scale projects do not know about their legal responsibilities.

Statistics released by the government body highlight the need for personal protective equipment on such sites, as 38 people died last year while working on refurbishment, repair and maintenance projects.

Rob Hirst of the HSE's construction division in the north-east said a number of other workers were 'injured or suffered ill-health because of poor health and safety practices'.

He added: 'Whether you think of yourself as a property investor, developer or renovator, everyone has a role to play in helping reduce the number of serious and sometimes fatal incidents.'

News of the campaign has come after the HSE held a construction safety event in Paisley earlier this month.
