Build a Solid Foundation of Construction Health and Safety with the Experts at Avensure

While it is vital to make sure your building site risk assessment is conducted correctly and steps are taken to prevent injury because the laws are so strict, the consequences of failure are so high; as an employer, this process can be intimidating. Thankfully you don’t have to become an overnight expert in construction health and safety. Contact Avensure, and we will send one of our construction safety consultants to conduct a full audit of your domestic or commercial construction project. From there, our team provides you with reusable building site health and safety training material. This will give you a good understanding of the health and safety laws that you need to be aware of in the industry and will help with future risk identification in construction projects that may apply.

    Construction Health and Safety FAQs

    Why is health and safety important on a construction site?2021-11-04T06:23:06+00:00

    Health and safety in construction sites are important both for keeping your employees, clients or visitors safe, as well as for remaining in compliance with the UK’s Health and Safety legislation. Failing to take steps towards a health and safety compliant workplace can result in a fine from HSE, or being taken to a tribunal by your employees. More importantly, construction health and safety protocols prevent accidents and injuries, and in some cases, can be the difference between life and death. If you need construction health and safety advice or are worried that your workplace is not compliant, call Avensure today for a comprehensive, detailed risk assessment evaluation and follow up training or if you need advice meeting the requirements for a specific construction health and safety certificate.

    What are the 4 common health hazards in construction?2021-11-04T06:21:00+00:00

    The most common health hazards in construction can be summarised as:

    ·        Trips and falls: Half-finished balconies and stairs with no bannisters make trips and falls more likely

    ·        Machinery: Power tools and machinery have the potential to cause serious harm if handled improperly

    ·        Vehicles: On larger sites, bulldozers, excavators, and cement trucks may be moving around frequently

    ·        Hazardous materials: Adhesives, concrete and other chemicals frequently used in construction can be corrosive or toxic.

    A building site risk assessment evaluation from Avensure will highlight the most urgent health and safety risks on your site.

    What are the health and safety issues involved in construction?2021-10-25T08:23:59+01:00

    Construction health and safety issues are often the same as found in other workplaces – slips and trips, machinery, noise, vibration, or working at height. The critical difference is that a construction site is continually evolving and changing as the project progresses. It is an incomplete space that does not necessarily have designated vehicles or marked areas around machinery. These factors make it inherently more dangerous than other workplaces, so good construction health and safety advice is vital.

    What is health and safety in the construction industry?2021-10-25T08:22:57+01:00

    Health and safety and risk assessment in the construction industry is a collection of steps and measures taken to reduce the risk of an injury within the workplace, specifically on building sites. Health and safety in construction sites can be more complex than in other workplaces due to heavy machinery, vehicles, and hazardous materials, so an employer must comply with HSE requirements. It’s often a very good idea to reference an up to date construction safety inspection checklist.
