Background

Under health and safety legislation, employers are required to assess, manage and control health risks to their employees as a result of the work they undertake. In April 2016, B&CE bought an existing industry-supported scheme, Constructing Better Health, and with the support of Build UK members will create an occupational health management scheme for the entire construction industry.

Objective

To introduce an occupational health scheme for the construction sector that can be used by all employers required to undertake occupational health surveillance and that enables individuals to move between employers with transferable health records.

Outcome

An industry occupational health scheme that delivers an appropriate and consistent level of occupational health surveillance across construction, adopted by Build UK members.
