Conditions of Use

  • This Construction Forum aims to promote discussion about workplace health and safety issues in the construction industry. The idea is that forum members can share good practice, not use the forum as a direct 'question and answer' channel with HSE.
  • Much of the information and advice on this site will be provided from those currently working in the industry. (Whilst we expect most of this information to be of direct value, HSE is not responsible for any specific advice given through this site.)
  • HSE Web Communities, including the Construction Forum, are a place for constructive, helpful, intelligent, and polite conversations. People can and will disagree, but it's important that members show respect for each other; be tolerant; and give people the benefit of the doubt. If you are unable to keep to these guidelines, this might not be the place for you.
  • HSE reserves the right to remove offending material and ban members at any time and without prior notice for libel, defamation, actual threats, copyright abuse, or the posting of someone's personal information (e.g. an address or telephone number) without their permission. We will also remove messages simply advertising products, services and web sites or discussions which are clearly ‘off-topic'. We'll explain our actions to the individual concerned - and, where appropriate, let other members know.
  • If you see anything in the Forum, which you believe contravenes HSE Web Communities terms of use, please e-mail the Group Manager.
  •  We will not edit or censor a discussion because we don't happen to agree with it.
