The States Assembly has agreed to adopt a new set of regulations for the construction industry.
These will come into force on 1 October 2016, and replace the existing out-dated Construction (Safety Provisions)(Jersey) Regulations 1970.
It follows many years work, during which the Health and Safety at Work Inspectorate has worked closely with the construction industry. The new regulations represent current industry standards, employment relationships within the industry and address the management of health and safety throughout the life of a construction project.
Director of the Health and Safety at Work Inspectorate, Tammy Fage said “The introduction of the regulations is a major step forward in gaining improvements in health and safety performance within this high risk industry, and to achieve a safer working environment for all construction workers."
