THREE men were killed last week during another black week for the industry.
A self-employed 65-year-old builder fell 6 m to his death while repairing a roof on a two-storey house in Archdeacon Newton, Darlington in County Durham.
And across the Pennines a teenager was killed on a construction waste recycling site when he was run over by a 16-tonne loading shovel in Widnes, Cheshire.
His name and age have not been released but he is understood to be an employee of local firm Grundy & Co Excavations.
Further south, a member of the public was found dead at the foot of a newly constructed stairwell at a housing development in Brinkworth, Wiltshire.
He died from head injuries but it is unknown why he was on the site.
The Health and Safety Executive has begun investigations.
