The CIF Health & Safety Summit

October 29th
Virtual Summit


Safety is a value and belief that is shared by all across the construction industry. Our commitment to staying focused on the job, and therefore safe, is a point of pride and strength that runs across the entire sector. Health & safety in the industry has been dramatically altered by Covid-19 as the pandemic has impacted all aspects of construction projects. In a time of ever-growing risk, there is one key tool every construction project should have in its toolbox in order to persevere: a focus on resilience.

Resilience has become more than a buzzword for the industry as risks continue to abound across several areas. It is not just the Covid-19 pandemic that has compounded risk for the construction sector; but also factors such as climate change, employee safety, technology adoption and more continue to add pressure.

As risks in the construction industry continue to expand, the need to have a long-lasting, resilient plan in place has become even more crucial – that is the major theme of the CIF Health & Safety Summit 2021.

In a new move this year, the Summit comes to you on the last day of Health & Safety Week 2021. Our summit will feature highlights from H&S Week 2021, as well as a packed agenda honing in on the most critical safety and health compliance and risk issues impacting the business of construction today. If your goal is protecting the safety and health of the men and women working in construction, this is the event for you.

Here are the topics we are planning to feature in our 2021 agenda:

  • Building business resilience: the critical role of health & safety
  • Managing safety & health requirements and risks
  • Factoring H&S concerns into phases of a project plus managing emerging risks with offsite and modular construction
  • Tackling the Negativity Bias in safety
  • Protecting home workers: Steps to ensure the health and mental health of remote workers
  • Mitigating the risk of mental ill-health: Monitoring workers’ health and mental heath and your legal obligations
  • Smart safety management in the era of big data
  • The future of health & safety regulation – potential updates to H&S regulation and the impacts this could have on employers’ responsibilities

Our event welcomes anyone with an interest in health and safety in the construction industry. It is a must-attend for all professionals with responsibility for managing and organising health and safety within 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
