News: Site accidents

Engineers must take greater responsibility for preventing site accidents, said training consultant Bryan Madge recently. Madge, speaking to delegates at the Health & Safety in the Workplace exhibition in Cardiff, claimed 60% of site fatalities could be prevented before work started.

He said proposed revisions to the approved code of practice for site safety, 'Managing construction for health and safety' would have a significant impact in raising the profile of health and safety issues, and urged engineers to make their views known to the HSE.
