Oct. 28: Results of Blitz on Construction Sites
In May and June 2015, MOL inspectors conducted a blitz at construction sites, focusing on the hazards of working around vehicles and large pieces of mobile equipment. The inspectors conducted 1,494 field visits to 1,313 workplaces and issued 3,056 orders, including 261 stop work orders. The three most frequently issued orders under the Construction Regulations involved a failure of employers to:
- Ensure workers were protected from falls
- Ensure workers used PPE when required
- Provide traffic control and planning, and organize vehicle and equipment operation at the construction project.
