North-west construction firms set for safety event
Health and safety guidance is due to be offered to a number of firms operating in the construction sector through a forthcoming event, it has been revealed.
Users of personal protective equipment such as safety boots might want to take note of the scheme, which is being supported by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
On September 16th, Haydock Park Racecourse in the north-west of England will host the event.
Alan Pojur, an inspector from the HSE, believes it is important that major injuries are avoided in the building sector.
He stated: 'The event is aimed at self-employed builders and the owners of small building firms from anywhere in the north-west and we would urge as many people as possible to come along.'
The HSE aims to tackle a number of different workplace safety issues, with the electric gates sector being another industry that has been offered guidance from it in recent times.
