Hi guys and gals,
I’m working in construction but I’m starting to think about my long term health with the various chemicals and materials I’m using on a daily basis. Also the physical strain on my body will affect me at some point but by then it’ll be too late. I know I need to “get off the tools” but I don’t know what to do instead. I’m currently fabricating and fitting stone worktops and bathrooms which I do enjoy, I’m a qualified carpenter by trade and have been on sites for the last 14 years. I’m now 31 and have two kids that I need to think of. I know too many people that have been severely injured and killed while working on buildings. Does anyone have a suggestion on what route I should take or who to talk to about my situation? Has anyone here been in the same situation?
