Unacceptable performance by refurbishment sector of the construction industry

“Over one in three construction sites visited put the lives of workers at risk and operated so far below the acceptable standard that our inspectors served 395 enforcement notices and stopped work on 30% of the sites”, Geoffrey Podger, HSE’s Chief Executive said today.

This comes after HSE carried out over 1000 spot checks of refurbishment sites across Great Britain during February.
