You can learn more about the dangers of Manual Handling from the Health & Safety Executive by clicking here – did you know that even in an office setting, mistakes can lead to life-long discomfort causing injuries, so the importance on-site must not be overlooked. Abrasive Wheels includes the risks brought about using grinders and table saws – you’ll want to check out this publication also from the HSE about the related laws and risks you and your workers face on-the-job. Working at Heights may seem fairly obvious as a risk, but you’d be surprised how many seemingly safe tasks can lead to injury at this link. Asbestos is a less obvious killer, but all to common in the buildings and structures we all interact with daily – as a contractor in the construction industry, you’re expected to know about the relevant laws and how to approach asbestos safely and ensure the safety of the public at all times – don’t get caught out, get trained with Global Horizon Skills this month. Find out more about asbestos here.
