Woodworking Sector to be Inspected by HSE

April 2022 will see the HSE inspectors attending woodworking businesses around Great Britain to ensure that dutyholders understand the risks involved with woodworking and have effective controls in place to keep workers safe and protect their respiratory health.

HSE Inspectors will be looking for evidence that employers have considered the control measures required to reduce workers’ exposure to wood dusts; workers understand that exposure to wood dusts can damage their long-term respiratory health; and that effective control measures are in place to protect workers from harm.

You can find the latest guidance on woodworking on the HSE Website, and the experts at Forrest Health & Safety are also on hand for support.
