Build UK members contribute to updates for Construction H&S and Environmental Manuals

Build UK is continuing its work with Construction Industry Publications (CIP) to ensure the Construction Health & Safety (H&S) manual includes industry recognised health and safety policies and standards.

This integrated approach aims to improve the knowledge and practices of those on site without duplicating information or publishing conflicting advice.

Build UK partner Construction Industry Publications (CIP) is offering all Build UK members an exclusive 30% discount (excludes the six monthly updates) on its online combined Construction Health & Safety and Environmental Manual, CIP Knowledge, and also on hardcopies and CDROMs. For a short synopsis and summary of CIP Knowledge watch the latest video here.

Planned 2018 updates to CIP Knowledge include:

  • Completely re-written Asbestos section
  • Information on the new ISO 45001 Occupational Health & Safety Standard
  • Updated Register of Legislations
  • Updated Ecology section
  • Information on BREEAM 2018 and the new Sustainable Procurement Standard – ISO20400.

Martin Worthington, Member of the Drafting Panel and SHEQ Director of Build UK member Morgan Sindall Construction and Infrastructure Ltd, said:

“For good practical up to date advice on health and safety matters, the Construction H&S Manual is a must for everyone involved in construction. Working with Build UK will ensure it is even more relevant on a day to day basis as the ‘go to’ source of information for all things health and safety. It will also keep the manual up to date with industry practices, and provide the more collaborative approach we all want.”

Details of subscription prices for the CIP Knowledge can be found on the website. Build UK members can claim their 30% discount using the promotional code BUILDUK.

Build UK members also have the opportunity to take out a free one month’s trial of the online version by registering on the CIP Knowledge website.
