Employing an estimated 2.1 million workers in Great Britain (ONS) – 6% of the total British workforce according to Health and Safety Executive (HSE) statistics – the construction industry is big business. However, it can also be a risky business.
The HSE reports that 13,000 deaths per year are linked to past exposures at work to hazardous substances and construction dusts. Unfortunately, these exposures are part of many construction workers’ everyday reality. This means the construction sector faces a range of safety risks statistically higher than that for workers across all industries.
