Health and safety


We're Here to Make Our Industry Safer.

There is no doubt that construction is one of the most dangerous industries in the UK. Every year dozens of people die on site, several thousands get injured or develop work-related health problems.

This is why improving health and safety on construction sites plays a key role in UCATT's daily work and ongoing campaigns. We want employers to comply with the existing health and safety regulations, and we want workers to know their rights. Every worker also needs to have a good grasp of major workplace dangers so they can contribute to a better protection.

In this section you can find information about major health and safety issues such as:

  •  information on workplace hazards.
  •  guidance on what workers can do to prevent injuries and work-related ill health.
  •  legal developments and information on and for safety reps.

You can also download our quarterly Health and Safety News bulletins (HardHat) which provide updates about ongoing developments and events.
