Safety concerns stop work on Oban construction site

HEALTH and safety inspectors have stopped work on an Oban building site after concerns were raised with the watchdog.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE), which is ‘responsible for the encouragement, regulation and enforcement of workplace health, safety and welfare’, confirmed inspectors had attended MacLeod Construction’s Glenshellach site in Oban and that two prohibition notices had been served on the developer.

HSE said on Tuesday it had also received concerns regarding work at other MacLeod Construction sites in Argyll and Bute, and ‘is currently making further inquiries at this time’.

The independent body explains on its website: ‘HSE inspectors normally enforce health and safety standards by giving advice on how to comply with the law. Sometimes we must order people to make improvements by issuing them with a notice, either an Improvement Notice which allows time for the recipient to comply, or a Prohibition Notice which prohibits an activity until remedial action has been taken.’
