Tuesday 11th July 2017 - DURHAM
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, aimed at managers and supervisors, will provide up-to-date information on preventing occupational diseases. It will highlight the most important health issues specific to the construction industry, what the risks are and how to prevent them.
Book now by downloading attached booking form! Please note, this event usually books up very quickly and places will be offered on a first-come, first served basis.
WHITE VAN ROADSHOW
Carney Consultancy Limited will be attending the White Van Roadshow. The event is being run by Working Well Together (WWT) - an industry led initiative, sponsored and supported by the HSE.
The week-long White Van Roadshow, which begins Monday 26th June, aims to raise awareness about the risks workers on construction sites face every day, to try and cut the number of deaths and injuries in the industry.
In groups of 10-15, workers will visit the Roadshow for approximately half an hour to hear a series of short talks. With Occupational Health being high on HSE’s agenda, this year’s Roadshow topics will be health-related - construction dust, hand arm vibration, noise – and to coincide with the launch of the construction industry’s own mental health awareness programme, Mates in Mind, we also have Tyneside and Northumberland Mind involved in the Roadshow.
Ricky Guy, SHEQ Manager, said:
Farrans Construction is proud to be working with the Working Well Together North East group and to be hosting part of the Roadshow event. By meeting with construction workers directly on site, the Roadshow offers an excellent opportunity to share health and safety information directly with those working at the coal face.
Staff from Carney Consultancy Limited will be on hand throughout the week to answer any questions that may be asked. Our first representative on Monday 26th June 2017 will be Director Dave Carney at TEESRep Biomass Power Station alongside Tecnicas Reunidas. Dave Carney is also the Chairperson for Working Well Together - North East.
