Improving safety in the construction industry
Although substantial efforts have been made to improve safety in the construction industry, it remains one of the industries most at risk in the EU and the sector is responsible for about 20-30% of all known serious occupational injuries.
This webinar from the Finnish Institute of Occupational Health explores how safety can be improved in the construction sector. It covers how to prepare for the inspection of physical hazards and looks at how audits can reveal whether employers have fulfilled their responsibilities to identify, prevent and eliminate musculoskeletal problems.
The webinar is aimed at occupational safety and health professionals and those at management level in the construction industry. Attendees learn how to identify the most common hazards and receive tips for tackling them.
