Why are We Taking Action?

Through running these events and working together, we aim to significantly reduce work-related ill-health in the construction industry. We are also committed to raising awareness and promoting education around poor site health and uncontrolled hazards. This is why our events offer important educational content for free; we believe that this information should be accessible to all in the industry.
