HSE DUST CAMPAIGN – JUNE 2022

The HSE have started a nationwide building site inspection campaign.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE), Britain’s national regulator for workplace health and safety is committed to improving the health of workers in the construction industry. From Monday 6th June the HSE will be conducting a month long focus on respiratory risks and occupational lung disease. 

Sites of all types and sizes will be visited to check that appropriate measures are in place to protect workers’ lung health from exposure to dust. 

HSE inspectors will look at the way work is designed and planned, and the measures in place to protect workers from harmful exposure to dust.
