The report identifies the main factors associated with health and safety issues on refurbishment sites and investigates the strategies adopted during refurbishment works involving demolition activities. A comparison between the practices in the UK and Italy was undertaken and a checklist for proactive management of health and safety on refurbishment projects was prepared. Based on the project's findings recommendations are made for further research and for improvements in the industry practices.
