Risk Assessments

  • In 2022, 7 people lost their lives working in the construction sector in Ireland. Of these 7 construction fatalities, 5 of which related to working at height.
  • In 2022, slipping or falling led to 286 work-related construction incidents. 38% of these were falls from height.

The HSA will begin a construction inspection campaign on Tuesday 6th June 2023 highlighting the need for vigilance to safety when working at heights. The two-week campaign will target both small and large construction sites.

During the campaign, the HSA will be inspecting construction sites to ensure employers and those self-employed in construction understand the risks associated with working at height and have put in place the appropriate control measures.

To ensure a safe working environment employers and self-employed should:

  • carry out risk assessments for work at height activities and make sure all work is properly planned, organised and carried out by a competent person,
  • chose the right work equipment and put in place measures to prevent falls (such as guard rails and working platforms).
  • ensure all those working on construction site understand the risks and comply with safety systems

What People Say

A small selection of kind words.
Started working with Fran four years ago and now she looks after all of our health and safety paperwork and training. She is approachable, down to earth, on top of everything and always on the phone when we need her. John Brophy JNL SCAFFOLDING
Couldn’t recommend Frances highly enough. Very professional service with serious attention to detail. She knows what we need before we do! She looks after all our paperwork, records, training, certification etc. She put a system in place for us and she monitors it and keeps everything and everyone in line! Keith Murphy AVALON CONVEYOR COMPONENTS
Professional service that hasn’t cost me the earth! I call on Fran for updates or method statements or if I am asked for something specific for health and safety. She is always so helpful and practical; she works out solutions on site and puts the paperwork together for me. Even though I only call on her when I need her, she actually feels like one of the lads. Martin Bennett COOLRAIN CONCRETE
I was starting from scratch when I contacted Fran for a Health and Safety Statement. I thought it would be just a one-off need but as I have gotten different jobs, I have needed method statements, or extra training and I have always gone back to Fran. I would build all day long but ask me to do paperwork and I would run a mile! Fran makes it all so easy, there is no fuss, just an easy going get the job done attitude. Mark Fortune KEY CONSTRUCTION
