The HSE has published results of a recent "blitz" of construction sites and inspected 1759 sites and 2145 contractors in March 2009. Of those, 1 in 5 sites was found to be working to below an acceptable standard, with 1 in 6 sites failing to have proper procedures in place for working at height. Nearly 300 Prohibition Notices were issued with around 45 Improvement Notices issued. 11 sites were sufficiently poor to be considered for prosecution. It is well known that the HSE is keen to focus on the Construction Industry as one of the sectors which has the largest number of employees, and the largest number of incidents.
