Off-site construction 'safer than on-site building methods'

Research carried out by Portakabin subsidiary, Yorkon, has shown that its approach to off-site construction is significantly safer than traditional site-based building methods.

Analysis of Yorkon's health and safety record over the past two years has revealed 46 per cent fewer incidents compared to construction industry statistics for reportable injuries provided by the Health and Safety Executive. There were no fatalities or major incidents on any Yorkon projects during this period.

The construction industry is one of the UK's largest employers but its health and safety record is still a major concern. By contrast, off-site working, in a controlled factory environment, results in much improved safety for a permanent, trained labour force, as well as increased productivity.
