Construction employer pack and information events

New health and safety pack and free information events for construction industry

Health and Safety Works NI (HSWNI) have launched a new resource pack to help construction employers manage their health and safety.

The publication gives guidance across a range of issues, from writing a health and safety policy, through carrying out risk assessments and method statements, to putting together a health and safety plan.

Worked examples and templates are provided throughout and a section has also been included for record-keeping.

The pack forms part of a package of assistance provided by HSWNI advisers during their visits with construction employers.
