HSE PRIORITIES FOR CONSTRUCTION SECTOR 2013-14

Fragile materials, dust control and RPE fitting likely move up agenda 

The current HSE plan (2012/13) for construction industry regulation is part of a 3 year plan.

The 2012/13 plan targets asbestos; small sites/projects; refurbishment and major projects/large contractors and clients with the following risks and issues considered during site visits:

  1. Key generic risks work at height; asbestos; welfare facilities; good order and respiratory risks;
  2. Leadership – how effective directors and senior management are at leading health and safety;
  3. Health risks – raising awareness and promoting knowledge of health risks in construction;
  4. Worker involvement – encouraging effective worker involvement, so every worker plays an active role;
  5. Contractor Competence – emphasis on the competence of organisations and individuals; and
  6. Temporary Works – managing temporary works through adequate management arrangements.
 
Likely developments for 2013-14

A new annual HSE plan for construction will be published in the coming months covering the period April 2013 – April 2014. Major changes are not expected although added priority is likely to be placed on:

Full and precise details should be available later this year.
