Launch of new construction safety group builds big support

More than 200 construction workers attended a special North East health and safety event to help reduce fatal and serious accidents at work.

In the last 25 years more than 2,800 people have died from injuries they received as a result of construction work and many more have suffered serious injuries or been made ill. In 2008/09, there were 53 fatalities in the construction industry – that’s equivalent to one a week.
