The inspections are checking employers and workers know the risks, plan their work and are using the right controls to protect workers from inhaling construction dust, including respirable crystalline silica (RCS) and wood dust.
HSE has partnered with construction and occupational health organisations to highlight the health risks and the control measures required on site to prevent exposure to dust. The network of partners includes British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS), Construction Industry Advisory Committee (CONIAC), Civil Engineering Contractors Association (CECA), Construction Leadership Council (CLC), Health in Construction Leadership Group (HCLG), Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) and Construction Dust Partnership.
