Health and Safety

  • The Construction Phase Plan for a project must clearly set out how the construction phase will be managed, and the key health and safety issues specific to the project. The plan should outline what arrangements are in place to manage and co-ordinate the work on site.
  • At Craven Safety Services we provide tailor-made asbestos awareness training courses for maintenance staff and other employees who may encounter asbestos materials during the course of their work. The courses are suitable for surveyors, engineers, maintenance personnel, general building contractors, property maintenance companies, council staff, site managers, head teachers etc.

  • The injury rate in the food and drink manufacturing sector is double the manufacturing sector average and the HSE estimate that 25% of these injuries are musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). However, despite these figures, HSE’s enforcement relating to MSDs remains low.

  • Health risks do not seem to receive enough attention when it comes to managing the risk. This may be due to the fact that the consequences of exposure to some harmful agents are not often visible.

  • Gloves are a very good form of protection against chemical hazards, however when they fail this almost always leads to danger. It is important for anyone responsible for specifying gloves to understand the complex reasons gloves work and stop working.
