Thursday 25th May 2023

Croke Park, Dublin

Safety and health is a constant challenge for the construction industry. With more complex safety challenges arising each year, and a spotlight on workers mental health and wellbeing, addressing these challenges is more critical than ever. 

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. 

The CIF Health & Safety Summit brings together leaders from across the construction sector to hear the latest policy updates, how to address the challenges facing the sector, explore how industry and government can work together and examine best practices.
