Inspections put protective boots use back on agenda

The use of personal protective equipment (PPE) has been put back in the spotlight by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) this week.

It has been revealed that the organisation has placed seven construction sites in Bedford on its priority list after carrying out a range of inspections.

The use of protective boots and other PPE may have been touched upon during the visits, as they considered a number of issues including the proper use of equipment and the use of correct precautions when working at height.

Peter Galsworthy, HSE principal inspector for construction in Bedfordshire, said: 'All employers in Bedford must ensure that they take health and safety seriously.

'Construction sites are dangerous places to in which work and it is important that health and safety is properly addressed at all times.'

The HSE's inspections have come after it prosecuted a roofing company for not using the correct equipment when a member of staff was working on a project.
