Mark Cottriall, HSE Principal Construction Inspector, says: “The aim of the day is not only to raise awareness of key health and safety issues facing the construction industry but also to give practical advice on how to avoid risks on construction sites.
“If you have a small building, construction or contracting company or if you are self employed and would like up to date advice to help you get to grips with health and safety then this free event is a must for you.
“We’re bringing the construction industry together from across Cumbria to make them more aware of the risks they face, and hopefully save some lives.”
Main themes for the day include:-
· effective site management;
· occupational health risk management; and
· choosing and using the right work equipment.
