building site safety rules

Comment 5th July 2010


how did it get so crazy. when I go on a building site I now have to undertake a one day H&S briefing… this is for each and every site even if like in my job I might attend 10 different sites in a month. When on site I am treated like a little boy and made to wear hard boots, hard hat, gloves, goggles and High visibility top. Theres an argument for hard, boots and high visibility tops but the rest is just plain stupid. There's a huge amount of red tape and 'arse covering' and very little of it actually makes me any safer.

Why does this matter?

it reduces my productivity as I spend a very large amount of time attending h&s briefings and having to find my PPE gear
