    FREE Groundworkers Safety and Health Awareness Event

    Thursday 14th September 2017 0830 - 1300- Groundforce Training Services, Dukeries Mill, Claylands Avenue, Worksop S81 7DJ

    This is one of a series of free partnership events run by the industry for the industry, as part of the UK-wide Working Well Together (WWT) construction industry safety initiative.
    The event aims are to raise awareness of the safety risks when penetrating the ground.  Whether it's simply to better understand ground conditions or why 'shallow' or 'deep' excavations fail, the event provides the latest advice and guidance. 
    There will be opportunities to meet experts in the field of groundworks and seek advice.  Importantly, this event is meant to be interactive, providing attendees with the opportunity to view a series of 'practical' sessions with equipment both in and out of the ground on a mock 'live' site.
    If you dig in the ground, supervise or manage groundworkers, managed a contractor or are self-employed then this FREE half day event is for you.
    Please submit your questions and booking form by email to chris.taylor2@hse.gov.uk or booked via

    Occupational Health in Construction event 19th September 2017 (am)

    Pontefract Racecourse, Pontefract Park, Park Road, Pontefract WF8 4QD

     There have been big improvements over recent years in reducing the number and rate of injuries to construction workers.  Despite this, construction remains a high-risk industry and accounts for a high percentage of fatal and major injuries. What is less recognised is that construction is a high-risk industry for health issues too.

     

    Every year more working days are lost due to work-related illness compared to injuries. Statistics reveal that construction workers have a high risk of developing diseases from a number of health issues. These can be devastating for individuals and families. 

     

    This half day event will provide up-to-date information on preventing some of the occupational diseases in the construction industry. It will highlight these and explain what the risks are and how to prevent them.
     
    The attached flyer gives full details of how to book a place/s.  £10 per person.
