Tottenham Hotspur are satisfied with the health and safety standards on the new stadium’s building site despite claims for the government to intervene.

This comes following reports of some workers being offered ‘extra pay’ to work back-to-back 12-hour shifts to ensure the project is delivered on time.

It is also believed their main contractor Mace was not involved in the job advertisements looking for tradesmen to work long-hour shifts.

However, in a recent statement Spurs said Mace had the situation under control:

“Mace are in control of the stadium site and we expect them to uphold the requisite welfare rights of all contractors,” Tottenham’s spokesperson said.

“They have assured us that they supply the appropriate level of welfare facilities, in line with industry standards for a site of this size.”

In order for the new stadium to achieve its health and safety certificates to open on 15 September the club must run at least two test events which are due to take place next month.

The stadium continues to grow each day and with just over a month to go until the official opening date the race to beat the clock is on.
