RR231 - Improving health and safety in construction: Phase 2 - Depth and breadth: Volume 1 - Summary report

Presents an illustrated summary of a major investigation into the underlying causes and risk controls for a range of construction activities. The work has sought to combine hard data, including accident and ill-health evidence, with 'expert' judgements to build up a comprehensive and balanced understanding of the human, hardware and external factors. Diverse problems have been examined including: hand-arm vibration syndrome; construction transport safety; falls from height; and an industry-wide view considering the potential efficacy of different intervention mechanisms HSE might adopt in working with the industry.
