Following their recent refurbishment inspection initiative, here are some top tips from HSE Inspectors on how the health and safety of small sites could easily be improved:

Electrics - where appropriate use 110v or RCDs: http://www.hse.gov.uk/construction/safetytopics/systems.htm?ebul=cons/mar11&cr=4

Work at height - plan ahead and select the correct equipment e.g. mobile towers, scaffolds: http://www.hse.gov.uk/construction/safetytopics/workingatheight.htm?ebul=cons/mar11&cr=5

Excavations - to avoid collapse use adequate shoring or other techniques: http://www.hse.gov.uk/construction/safetytopics/stability.htm?ebul=cons/mar11&cr=6
