At our 6th Designer Seminar the Health and Safety Executive announced that they will be carrying out a 'Blitz' in Devon and Cornwall. This will be over a 4 week period from the 20th February 2012. The mains areas, although not exhaustive will be fire safety, particularly in timber frame construction. They shall also be looking closely at asbestos in refurbishment and demolition as well as falls from height, along with other aspects of health and safety.

Their main concentration will be on small and medium size construction sites, although all sites will be visited where necessary.
