Structural stability during refurbishment (C740)


HSE inspectors who attend sites have reported that while larger contractors had made strides in improving the health and safety of workers on their sites, smaller contracting companies, often engaged in smaller refurbishment projects, were of more concern. CIRIA has prepared this guidance to provide information to these smaller companies, as well as providing general guidance for clients, designers and contractors. Messages to government are also presented, based on feedback from industry.

The guidance has been prepared following a period of consultation with industry bodies and individuals. It is presented as a series of downloadable toolbox talks (TBTs) that address individual topics. It is expected that following publication, the information provided will be improved by further industry comment and research on particular topics. Feedback to CIRIA will be welcomed and the TBTs will be revised as necessary.
