Construction

 

Despite sustained improvements in the management of worker health and safety in recent years, construction remains a high-risk industry.Construction Worker.jpg

Protecting construction workers not only from injury but from longer term health issues (such as respiratory diseases, musculoskeletal disorders and cancer) is a priority.

HSL helps you to deliver construction projects safely.

A significant proportion of the injuries and illnesses we research and investigate are connected with the construction sector.

As a result, we have acquired a unique understanding of how construction-related injuries and illnesses can arise, and how they can be prevented.

 

Why choose HSL?

  • You'll be helped by world-leading experts who can share with you the latest thinking on health and safety risks in the construction sector.
  • As a result of better risk management, the health and safety of your workforce will improve and so, in turn, will your business performance.
  • We know what good practice in construction risk management looks like and can help you to achieve health and safety excellence in your organisation.

 

How can we help?

To ensure value for money, we tailor all the health and safety solutions we provide to the individual needs of each client.

In the construction sector, we can:

  • Measure noise and other environmental factors, and help to reduce their impact on employees and the wider public.
  • Assess hazardous substances such as silica dust, wood dust, paint, adhesives and resins.
  • Detect and assess biohazards, including anthrax spores, on brownfield sites.
  • Give advice on appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), and test to make sure it is fit-for-purpose.
