Construction remains a hazardous industry. While performance has improved over the past decade, significant levels of ill health continue in the workforce. This needs industry action. At the same time, construction, and society at large is undergoing a period of significant innovation and change – a fourth industrial revolution. The pace of this change in construction has been further accelerated by other factors like the COVID pandemic, the Grenfell Tower fire and the challenges in meeting Net Zero.

These challenges also represent opportunities to do things differently and improve the health of construction workers. Additionally, such improvements enable industry to move forward other important issue like quality, productivity, diversity and inclusion.

This session will cover the key long-term occupational health challenges the industry faces and discuss these opportunities in relation to them with a particular focus on improving:
• Risk management before construction starts
• Mental health and work-related stress
• The risks linked to moving and handling materials
Chris Lucas , Head of Construction Technology and Innovation Unit - Health & Safety Executive
