Summit to address construction safety

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) is holding a conference on 19 March to address the “major health and safety issues facing the construction industry”.

To be held at the Crowne Plaza hotel in Birmingham, topics covered will range from changes in the Construction Design and Management (CDM) regulations, to mental health awareness.

Health and Safety Executive chairman Judith Hackitt will deliver a keynote speech on topics including the changes to CDM, which come into force on April 6.

RoSPA workplace safety manager Rob Burgon said: “Although health and safety in the UK’s workplaces has never been at a better level, the rules, regulations and best practice is always changing.

“With that in mind, and considering the construction sector remains one of the most dangerous to work in, it’s important to keep abreast of what’s happening in your industry, and to share experience and knowledge with your peers.”
