A Redhill-based construction company has been ordered to pay £210,000 in fines and costs after an employee died following an explosion on a construction site in central London.

We’re pleased to announce that Seaham Safety Services Ltd is now accredited to deliver the NEBOSH National Certificate in Construction Health and Safety.
The certificate is established as a leading health and safety award for the construction industry, with over 12,000 successful candidates since 1989.
