Notts construction firms must not cut safety corners

Construction firms based in the Nottinghamshire region have been warned not to cut corners on health and safety.

In a development which may encourage the adoption of personal protective equipment like safety boots, figures published by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) have revealed that 21 enforcement notices were handed out at building sites in the area during March.

The HSE's Nic Rigby feels that a poor focus on safety might endanger people's lives.

Mr Rigby, who acts as the body's principal inspector of construction for Nottinghamshire, added: 'HSE will not tolerate poor health and safety standards on construction sites and we will continue to make unannounced visits and take enforcement action when necessary.'

He went on to say that construction firms should not try to cut down on their costs by taking risks.

March also saw the HSE give out five enforcement notices in Lincolnshire, the organisation has revealed.
