The health, safety and wellbeing of our workforce is the essential component of our industry. Every family has a right to expect any member working in the industry to return home safely from work at the end of every working day.
CECA have produced their own CDM guidance (link) identifying and promoting good industry practices. This has been well received across the industry and is being used by many to drive improvements.
Across the UK, CECA also leads an annual Stop. Make a Change (link) campaign which involves businesses across the sector ‘standing down’ their employees to specifically draw attention to and focus on workforce welfare issues.
We also promote the sharing of best practice amongst members, and Osborne’s ‘STOP Think! Cascade’ (link) is one example which we share with members.
CECA (Y&H) work closely with the Yorkshire Safety Centre for Construction in Y&H, collaborating on safety-related training and development activities as well as providing guidance on areas such as occupational health and mental health awareness.
