Protective workwear will be required in GreenwichPosted on 19/01/2012
Construction in London has been given a boost with the announcement from the Mayor of London Boris Johnson today (January 19th) that 4,000 jobs will be created.
All of these workers will need to be kitted out in protective workwear to comply with the Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992.
The project on the Greenwich Peninsula will see the creation of 1,350 new homes on the 190-acre site by the end of 2015, with work expected to begin later this year.
Ultimately, it is planned that 10,000 homes, 600 student bedrooms and 3.5 million sq ft of commercial floor space will be developed there.
Mr Johnson said: "The transformation of Greenwich Peninsula is undoubtedly one of the most exciting development opportunities in London.
"This latest phase of regeneration will seal its future as a thriving, well-connected new district."
Previous construction work on the Greenwich Peninsula saw the creation of the Millennium Dome, which is now the hugely successful O2 Arena.
