Demolition workers must be better protected in 2020, says Unite. Construction union, Unite, has said 2020 must bring safety improvements for demolition workers after a rise in deaths and major accidents in 2019. Unite has said it will write to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) to request that demolition incidents are investigated correctly and that lessons are learnt from errors. The union also stated that it would add pressure to enforcement agencies and employers to enhance their efforts to safeguard demolition workers.
