Health and Safety in Construction - a new way of thinking

The CIF Health & Safety Summit 2024 is designed to share updates in innovation and improvements for health and safety and to foster a new way of thinking about health and safety in the construction industry.

It will bring together thought leaders from Ireland’s construction sector to reinforce and promote the importance of safety, health and overall wellbeing in both work and life. The Summit will not only give you access to the most up to date information and resources on construction safety and health but you will also have the opportunity to interact with experts in the field, learn from their experience, and discover new tools to improve how you manage and promote health and safety within your own organisations. As one of the Ireland’s largest industries, it is vital we continue to grow, change, collaborate and innovate to protect people and prevent harm.

Our expert speakers will discuss constructing the future and how the surge in the adoption of Artificial Intelligence (AI) across various industries from healthcare to education and from agriculture to manufacturing. AI has become an essential part of modern business models and in the construction industry it has the potential to reshape workflows, improve safety, and increase efficiency like never before. What futuristic technologies will power the AI revolution? How can we leverage modern construction methods and digitalisation for enhanced efficiency?

Other key industry topics will include the importance of psychological safety for high performance; the impact of new techniques and methods of construction on health and safety in Off Site Manufacturing/Modern Methods of Construction; the work of the Construction Industry Register Ireland (CIRI) Admissions and Registration Board on the categorisation of industry sectors for first registration under statutory CIRI, projected to commence at some stage in 2025.
There will also be opportunity to network with other professionals before, during and after the event, as well exploring issues at our roundtable discussion session. Don’t miss this opportunity to gather, connect and collaborate with other thought leaders in the industry.

This year’s CIF Health & Safety Summit sees Ireland’s construction sector coming together to reinforce and promote the importance of safety, health and overall wellbeing in both work and life.
The Summit will feature some of the most established thought leaders on safety who will share their insights on how organisations can authentically embed health and safety, mental health and wellbeing into its fabric and how it can reduce the impact to the business and the individual by building a healthy, well, resilient workforce.
