CIF Health & Safety Summit

Health and Safety in Construction - a new way of thinking

14, May, 2024

Croke Park, Dublin

The CIF Health & Safety Summit 2024 is designed to share updates in innovation and improvements for health and safety and to foster new ways of thinking for the built environment.

Hear from expert thought leaders in European and UK health and safety, on how emerging technologies are creating new opportunities and unique challenges for the future of health and safety in the construction industry. Advancing faster than any innovation in our history, digital technologies have transformed our society and our daily lives. For workers and employers in many workplaces and in all sectors, digital technology offers increased opportunities but also presents greater challenges and risks in terms of safety and health. With the increasing move towards digitalisation of fieldworkers, Health & Safety and Operational leaders need to be abreast of the latest solutions being used by progressive organisations in the sector.

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; human-centred technologies for a safer and greener construction industry; why construction is a team sport and future plans for the Health and Safety Authority in a rapidly changing world of work.

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. 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
