What does the law require for head protection on construction sites?

The law requires head protection on construction sites as there are many situations where head injuries could happen.

The Construction site manager SHOULD provide all workers with suitable head protection.

What is ‘Suitable’ head protection?

Head protection should:

  • Be in good condition but if it is damaged throw it away
  • It should fit the person wearing it and be worn properly
  • The head protection will NOT stop you wearing hearing protection (when needed)
  • Hard hats SHOULD only be obtained from a reputable supplier as there are FAKE hard hats on the open market.

How can I ensure that head protection is worn?

  • By making it a site rule
  • Always wear your hard hat to set  an example for everyone else
  • By checking to make sure the others are wearing their hard hats

 

1 in 5 construction sites face enforcement action!

After a detailed inspection of construction sites across the country, reports advise that nearly one in five sites has been subjected to enforcement action.

Nearly 3000 contractors were seen across 2363 refurbishment sites by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Improper working practices were identified and 631 Enforcement Notices were issued across 433 sites. 451 sites had to stop work immediately which naturally results in a loss of time, money and effort, including client satisfaction..

 

Philip White, HSE’s Chief Inspector of Construction said:

“This initiative has once again shown us that the majority of Construction employers do take their responsibilities to their) workers seriously.

“However, our inspectors also encountered numerous examples of poor practice, from lack of edge Protection on Stairwells, Scaffolding to Unsafe Storage of Flammable Materials and Inadequate Personal Protective Equipment. None of these are acceptable on a Modern Construction site.

HSE WILL NOT hesitate to use its Enforcement powers against Reckless employers. It is them who continue to make Construction one of the Most Dangerous Industries in which to work.”
