HSE Dust Kills Campaign and Inspections

HSE launched at the beginning of June a month-long respiratory health inspection initiative.

Site inspections though this initiative will focus on dust control, in particular whether employers and workers know the risks, how they plan their work and whether they are using the correct controls to protect themselves and others from inhaling construction dust, including respirable crystalline silica (RCS) and wood dust. 

The respiratory focused inspections commenced on 6th June 2022.
