Across October, the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) is conducting assessments across the UK to analyse any respiratory risks caused by the exposure from certain substances across construction sites.
One of the biggest causes of respiratory-related illnesses in the construction sector is the exposure of harmful dusts affecting workers’ lungs. Statistics show that more than 3,500 builders die each year from cancers related to their work, with thousands of more cases of ill-health and working days lost.
Have you got adequate measures in place to protect your workers against being exposed to harmful substances like dust?
FIS Associate Member Citation has created a free guide for FIS members summarising all you need to know about dust, how to prevent being exposed to it, and how to ensure your people are fully equipped and protected.
