The Construction Industry Federation (CIF) has developed a Safety, Health and Wellbeing Calendar for 2022 to address the key areas of focus for construction for the forthcoming year. The intention is to focus on essential site safety considerations.
The theme for February is on hazardous substances (including the labelling, containment and handling of chemicals), and precautions when encountering welding fumes and construction dust.
When working in construction we can come in contact with a number of hazardous substances. It is imperative that all parties are aware of the significance of the ill health effects these cause and the main risk factors behind them. Below is a link to a tool box talk on this topic.
