    Conference to address construction health

    Conference to address construction health

    Construction managers are being invited to have their say on how to improve the health of workers at an upcoming event in Glasgow.

    Hosting a one-day conference at The Grand Central Hotel on April 27, BOHS, the Chartered Society for Worker Health Protection, hopes to map out the way forward to better health in the construction sector by bringing together a diverse group of experts.

    It is part of the organisation’s Breathe Freely campaign, which is aimed at controlling exposures to prevent occupational lung disease.

    ‘Unique opportunity’

    A range of topics will be discussed, from lessons learned in the offshore oil and gas industry to an approach to tackling mental ill health and suicide within the construction industry.

    The role of well-being and health surveillance in delivering integrated occupational health management is on the agenda as well.

    There will also be facilitated group workshop sessions, offering delegates the chance to share their insights into priority health risks in the sector and exactly what the industry needs in order to improve standards in health.

    BOHS chief executive, Steve Perkins, said the conference will provide a unique opportunity for construction managers who are responsible for health and safety to take an active role in shaping the future path of work-related health protection in their area.

    The event is also being used to support the Lighthouse Club, a charity which gives emergency financial aid to families in the construction industry community during times of crisis following an illness, accident, injury or bereavement to a loved one.
