HSE to blitz Cheshire sites

The Health and Safety Executive will undertake a blitz on the house building and refurbishment sectors in Cheshire next Tuesday.

Inspectors in the region will target sites as part of a rolling inspection programme.

During the regulator’s crackdown in February, 187 sites in the north west experienced spot checks with enforcement action taken on 103.

The HSE said: "Contractors targeted during this initiative can also expect strong enforcement action to be taken against them were poor health and safety standards are present on site."
