The HSE (Health and Safety Executive) recently announced that they will be carrying out site inspections throughout October in a bid to focus on respiratory health.
At Phoenix Brickwork / Drywall / Scaffold, we ensure that face-fit testing for all our operatives is carried out by our trainers despite figures noticeably dropping this year.
Face-fit testing at Sheffield Faculty of Social Sciences has been completed as the team head into another month on-site for client, BAM Construction.
Dust is always present on-site, and it can have a lasting effect on your health if the necessary steps aren’t taken. Those steps include dampening down with water suppression, using vacuums wherever possible and wearing the correct RPE.
We’re pleased to see that all seven operatives that took part in the testing have passed, and each have now been given their own face mask and goggles as well as a certificate.
