HSE launches campaign to protect Polish workers

Polish construction workers based in London have been singled out by the (HSE) to learn about avoiding work injuries.

The group wants to make it clear that Polish employees have as many rights to a healthy and safe working environment as indigenous workers.

Studies by the HSE indicate that migrant workers are a particularly vulnerable group of construction employees.

Philip White, chief inspector of construction at the organisation, commented that the HSE has employed specialist outreach representatives from the Polish community to get its message out across London.

Bartek Zdrowowicz, a Polish outreach worker, stressed the importance of health and safety education for migrant workers, saying: "Arriving in a foreign country, people may become vulnerable and exposed to different forms of exploitation or possible accidents caused by their completely new conditions of life, or just a language barrier."

Earlier this week, construction firm Rok was fined GBP 20,000 over an accident in which a Heathrow Airport worker was injured after falling from height.ADNFCR-2070-ID-19374704-ADNFCR
