The construction industry is on a strong growth trajectory driven mainly by ambitious government targets in house-building and infrastructure development. With this increase in activity comes an expanding workforce – new and returning workers adding approximately 112,000 people to the workforce over the next decade. This growth will bring an increase in occupational risk, so now is the time to reflect on our current health and safety procedures so workers can be busy and safe.
For decades the industry in Ireland has invested to ensure workers are safe on construction projects. Approximately 90,000 workers complete the Safe Pass Programme every year. However, progress and innovation are constant requirements in an ever-evolving working environment. We can never become complacent. Health and safety should be to the fore when planning every project regardless of its size.
Against the backdrop of this welcome expansion in construction, the CIF is delighted to host our inaugural Health and Safety Summit on November 28th in Croke Park. This event looks ahead to 2019 and beyond and will bring speakers from multiple sectors together to discuss how we can manage the challenges to create a healthier and safer workplace, how to adapt to changing demographics in the workforce, learn how data analysis and new technology can prevent illness and injury and see how investing in staff wellbeing today can help save money in the long term.
Our agenda will include the following topics:
- The regulatory viewpoint
- How employers can improve behavioural safety in construction
- Making the connection between health and safety and productivity and efficiency
- Education and training: Are existing programmes fit-for-purpose?
- A client’s perspective on leading better health outcomes
- Improving mental health in the industry
- How digital construction is enhancing health and safety
- Best practice case studies including iconic projects at home and abroad
Our event welcomes anyone with an interest in health and safety in the construction industry. It’s a must for all professionals with responsibility for managing and organising health and safety in their organisation including, but not limited to:
- Health and safety leaders
- Business owners, directors and managers
- Worker representatives
- Build and design professionals
- Contractors, sub-contractors
- local authorities, semi-state agencies, government departments, universities
