The construction industry has one of the highest rates of work-related injuries and fatalities. Therefore anything that can be done to manage health and safety is a key priority and always worthwhile.

Implementing an ISO45001 Health & Safety Management system provides a robust framework to demonstrate you take health and safety seriously and taking a proactive approach towards managing your safety issues, and how you report incidents and ensure continuous improvement.

Environmental impacts is another area in which construction is being ever held ever more accountable. The ISO14001 Environmental Management standard aims to promote a culture of protecting and prioritising the environment.  The legislation in this area is complex and our consultants can help you figure out what is applicable to your organisation.

The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015, also known as CDM Regulations or CDM 2015, came into force on 6 April 2015. These regulation govern the way construction projects of all sizes and types are planned in the UK.

Whatever your role in construction, CDM aims to improve health and safety in the industry by helping you to:

  • sensibly plan the work so the risks involved are managed from start to finish
  • have the right people for the right job at the right time
  • cooperate and coordinate your work with others
  • have the right information about the risks and how they are being managed
  • communicate this information effectively to those who need to know
  • consult and engage with workers about the risks and how they are being managed

If we can help your construction business understand its regulatory obligations and help you develop and implement robust management standards and systems please get in touch.
