The Health and Safety Authority (HSA) has recently submitted its annual report for 2018 to Pat Breen TD, Minister for Trade, Employment, Business, EU Digital Single Market and Data Protection.

The HSA is the Irish statutory body responsible for ensuring protection from work-related injury and ill health. This recent report is its third and final report under its three year strategy adopted in 2016. The recent annual report sets out the action taken by the HSA to implement that strategy in 2018.

For those working in the construction industry, the report serves as a reminder of the importance of adhering to health and safety rules and regulations and the potential serious consequences of a breach.

Sarah Conroy outlines the points worthy of note.
