CIF Health and Safety Summit


 2023 date coming soon..



Safety and health have been critical issues in the construction industry over the last two years and will remain at the centre of everything we do through 2022 and beyond, as the industry continues to navigate a “post-pandemic” world. 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 leading proponents of safety who will discuss how the industry can continue to put both the physical and mental health and safety of its workforce at the centre of everything it does, how it can build back better to create a strong and resilient workforce and how building resilience into business will benefit both people and the bottom line.

The economic outlook for 2022 and the medium-term is largely positive. The Construction Industry Federation (CIF) is estimating that the industry will need to recruit approximately 1,000 people per month for the coming years to meet building demand. With increased activity and additional workers needed to deliver the Government’s ambition in housing and infrastructure, it is crucial that the industry drives continual improvement in health and safety. Workforce wellbeing has become a business priority across all industry sectors as there is increased awareness of its links to business performance, operational resiliency and sustainability.

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. There will be discussions on the safety management of new technologies and innovationstraining and competencies, the changing H&S landscape and guidance for working remotely. The Summit will also highlight some of the major health concerns associated with musculoskeletal disorders (MSD) and there will be roundtable discussions on pertinent issues. If your goal is to eliminate accidents at work and to drive improvement in health and safety then the CIF Health & Safety Summit is the event for you.
