HSE Construction Research published
Report into H&S in small construction firms
CIAT has received a summary report of the HSE Insight SME Construction Research that was published on 6 July, and which can be accessed from the link below:
The purpose of this research was to improve HSE’s understanding of smaller businesses’ (with less than 15 employees) who work in the construction sector and clients’ (domestic and small commercial) who procure new build, refurbishment, repair and maintenance work from the construction sector regarding their needs, perceptions, attitudes and behaviours when it comes to seeking out and using health and safety (H&S) communications and support to enable the effective management and control of risk.
CONIAC will now be working with HSE to formulate both long term and short term actions over the coming weeks and the Supporting Small Employers Working Group (SSE) will be central to this. The SSE are due to meet on 31 July 2018 to discuss this further.
