HSG 168 – MINOR REVISION TO FIRE SAFETY IN CONSTRUCTION

HSE Guidance – Fire Safety in Construction (HSG 168) includes a table in Appendix 3 showing the precautions that are appropriate for all sites and additional requirements for higher fire risk projects. There is an error in the text of this table under the ‘Hot works’ section.

Hot works

• the left column is for all construction and it should read “the area should be revisited one hour later” (not two as stated);

• the right column which is for high risk construction reads correctly “the area should be revisited two hours later”.

The published version of HSG 168 will be changed to take account of this revision at the next re-print.
