HSE Nationwide Site inspections started Monday 15th May

How dust is managed on site is a matter of life and death. Construction workers are dying and many more become chronically ill because construction dust can cause serious lung disease. Employers have a legal duty to control dust effectively and protect their workers’ lung health.

Starting this week, HSE will be carrying out a targeted health inspection initiative focusing on the respiratory risks to construction workers from exposure to silica and wood dust.

Running from Monday 15 May 2023 - Friday 14 July, the inspection initiative and supporting Dust Kills campaign aim to support industry by raising awareness of health issues in relation to dust exposure and the importance of effective control measures to improve the long-term health of those working in construction.

Are you confident that you have the effective controls in place to protect yourself and your workers?
