"2.2 million people work in Britain's construction industry, making it the country's biggest industry. It is also one of the most dangerous. In the last 25 years, over 2,800 people have died from construction work injuries. Many more have been injured or made ill" —Health and Safety Executive

The number of accidents within the construction industry can be reduced through a sensible practical approach:

  • Planning and organising work properly by considering the risk involved and implementing suitable safety control measures;
  • Make sure that people involved in construction work are competent in the work they carryout and the equipment/plant they operate;
  • Ensure that you select and use the right machinery, plant and personal protective equipment for the job; and
  • Suitably monitor and review your health and safety arrangements for site.

Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 (CDM)

The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 are wide reaching and place specific legal duties on anyone having construction or building work carried out unless they are a 'domestic client'. General health and safety duties apply to all construction projects, including duties of clients (the firm or individual for who the project is carried out), designers and contractors, their staff and any subcontractors.
There are also additional duties placed on clients, designers and contractors where the construction project is likely to last longer than 30 days or involve more than 500 person days of construction work. In this instance the project also becomes 'notifiable' to the Health and Safety Executive.
