Managing health and safety in construction
Construction has one of the highest rates for injury and ill health among all industries in the UK according to the Health and Safety Executive. I advise not only on regulatory compliance, but review designs, planning documents and conduct site visits to ensure safe practice throughout the design and the construction phases. This ensures a safe building when handed over to the client. Whether working on behalf of the project client, designer or contractor, I provide guidance and information specific to the site including consideration of appropriate site access and working methods that are sensitive to the historic fabric and the realities of the location. I conduct regular site visits during construction to support contractor’s safe practices. I also offer toolbox talks and training in manual handling and first aid.
