Construction workers

Issue No. 1736

Construction has the worst safety record of any industry. Workplace fatalities increased 20 percent in the last financial year to 86 deaths. Deputy prime minister John Prescott has called a 'Construction Safety Summit' for Tuesday of next week. This was originally going to be a full-day event. Now he has downgraded it to a three-hour session.

The Construction Safety Campaign has called a protest outside the summit.

Assemble Tuesday 27 February, 8am, Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, Parliament Square, London.
SEAN PROPHET, London Joint Sites Committee
