The Health and Safety Executive’s annual league table of fatal injuries shows the construction sector consistently tops the table.The UK and European Union have created a legal framework for prosecuting employers and employees who disregard health, safety and welfare legislation.To reduce the significant accident record in construction, employers must formulate workplace safety policies. These must address the hazards, risks, policies, the organisational and control arrangements required to promote health, safety and welfare, and be communicated to all parties.The unit will provide learners with knowledge and understanding of the legal framework relating to employer and employee responsibilities.An understanding of the principal causes of typical accidents and the associated costs of these will be developed, and learners will explore the methods used to identify workplace hazards in construction, together with the strategies used to control them including the use of risk assessments and monitoring and review procedures. Learners will become familiar with the roles and responsibilities of personnel and with the procedures required following the occurrence of accidents.
