Managing Health Risks in Construction Seminar

Please email your expression of interest

As a construction worker you are 100 times more likely to die from ill health caused by your work than through an accident. However, there is a tendency to focus on immediate likelihood of harm rather than the things that kill workers slowly. Deaths in construction workers caused by a cumulative exposure to health risks over many years are completely preventable, yet do we do enough to recognise and act upon the known risk factors?

This seminar will provide a unique opportunity to influence the type of support required by the industry to effect a change on health risk management.
  • Common health risks in the construction sector, their prevention and early identification (respiratory, skin, HAVs, noise)
  • Practical Occupational Hygiene updates and a 'Hands On' session
  • Approaches to identifying and dealing with stress and mental health issues in the construction sector
  • The new Health Risk Management Maturity Engagement Toolkit and how this can help your business
  • You will also have access to the broad range of HSL experts including medical and health expertise, hygienists, behavioural scientists and psychologists

Who Should Attend

This seminar will be of interest to employers and contractors of construction workers, health and safety managers and others with responsibilities for health under Construction Design and Management Regulations.

Book to attend this seminar if you want to take control of health risks to your workers and be involved in setting direction for industry support in this area.

Take a look at this VIDEO HERE by the Health in Construction Leadership Group - it reinforces the key message of treating health with the same importance as safety: in an industry that, to date, has tended to 'shout about safety but whisper about health'.
