The Construction Industry is a major employer in Northern Ireland but unfortunately is has a poor accident record with 46 workers killed in accidents over the last 10 years. This figure is serious and action must be taken by everyone involved in the Industry. Management influence is essential but the workers can have a major impact on health and safety standards on site. This will require a change of behaviour. Workers should insist on proper health and safety. For example refuse to work at heights unless proper edge protection has been provided. This change of attitude can be a driver for good.
