Summer building site safety promoted to UK firms, PPE users learn

UK businesses and parents have been encouraged to focus on building site safety during the summer holiday period, which may interest users of personal protective equipment (PPE) such as safety boots.

Secure sites are required to prevent youngsters from accessing construction areas and then using them for fun and games, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has suggested.

The body's chief inspector of construction, Philip White, pointed out that children should not be allowed to play on building sites, as they can be potentially dangerous.

He stated: 'Construction managers should check their sites are secure and, in areas where children live and play, they should ensure that risks to children are properly controlled.'

The HSE recently threw its weight behind the Estates Excellent project in the Hampshire region, in order to enhance the present standards of safety in the county.

It was officially launched by the body and other organisations last month.
