Health & Safety and Assessing Covid19 Risk

Posted on July 10, 2020

For those of you who don’t know, I supply management and contract staff in the commercial M&E (Mechanical & Electrical) industry. At a guess, I reckon I have had the inconvenience of having around fifteen projects cancelled delayed in my 23 years in this industry. These have either been because of fears of structural damage, or a suspicion that there may be signs of asbestos on the site. It is a pain in the arse because what ...
