Cause of concern


As a planning supervisor and civil engineer involved in the building sector, I find the latest 60% rise in site deaths very depressing (NCE 16 November).

However, we all need to know more about the causes of the deaths to see what each of us can do. Shock headlines are one thing but do we know where are we going so wrong?

Can you give me more information otherwise it is an uphill struggle to change designs and site methods?
