Construction workers including scaffolders need adequate toilet and washing facilities, a place to warm up and eat food and somewhere to store clothing, keeping street clothing separate from work clothing to avoid any contamination.
The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 requires that employers give all employees sufficient information, training & supervision as is necessary for their Health & Safety. A broad guidance reminding us to ensure good preparation and emphasising to employees the areas of responsibility we all have in working safely.
The NASC are committed to involving everyone in health and safety matters whether on construction sites or in the office. To effect a change we must consider our workforce and consult with all those involved in a project, listening to and where necessary acting upon the views of the workforce.
