HSE’s latest dust-up

The Health and Safety Executive has allowed investigations into the Didcot Disaster and the death of two demolition workers on a demolition site in Redcar to fester for seven and a half and three and a half years respectively.

It has failed to address the rising tide of drug and alcohol abuse on demolition and construction sites. And it has largely looked the other way while more than 500 demolition and construction workers take their own lives on an annual basis.

Yet it has found time to initiate a campaign targeting DUST!
