The regular data produced by the Health and Safety Executive shows that the local construction industry can stand over a much improved health and safety record in recent years…
Through the Federation’s own model, Safe-T-Cert, we can rightly claim to be an industry leader in health and safety standards – and this is something we are keen to advance, in a way that brings direct economic benefit to construction companies.
In a similar way, industry sees itself as a positive setter of higher standards in respect of promoting environmental good practice in its work. The introduction of the requirement to have an environmental management system for all main contractors seeking public sector work is something that we support and we have developed our own construction specific tool, NVIR-O-CERT, to help embed this system.
From 1 September 2019 the Construction Skills Register (CSR) will remove all remaining occupational assessments, including supervisors.
From 1 April 2019 CSR will no longer issue any new or renewal General Construction Operative (GCO) cards. GCO cards issued up to 31 March 2019 will continue to be valid for 4 years from the date of the health and safety training.
