Worker fatigue is a serious health and safety risk in construction but there are concerns that the industry as a whole is guilty of overlooking it. The inability to respond and react promptly can cause problems in any type of construction activity – leading to errors, near misses, injuries and even death.

To understand how the issue of worker fatigue is being addressed in the industry, the Considerate Constructors Scheme’s Best Practice Hub is running a survey to discover the extent of the problem and how it is being tackled.

If you work in the construction industry, you are requested to complete a short online survey here. [Link opens new tab.]

The survey closes on 9th August 2019, and results will be used to help inform the organisation's Spotlight on...worker fatigue national campaign that it is planning for the autumn.
