What if we got people protection right?
03 March / 11.45-12.45
People are the lifeblood of any construction project, big or small but are we protecting them in the wrong way? Research shows that between 2019-2020, 9,000 construction workers died in industry related events and exposure to environmental hazards. Compared to the 40 from accidents it’s clear that the immediate threats have been removed but what of the longer-term ones? Join us as we explore how changing working practices to ones which promote health and wellbeing can deliver long-term value.
