    Construction groups tackle safety

    Construction groups tackle safety

    Two of the UK’s leading construction trade organisations are uniting to tackle safety issues.

    The Building and Engineering Services Association (BESA) and Electrical Contractors’ Association (ECA) have announced dates and venues for health and safety focus forums around Britain.

    Attendees will be updated on important technical developments in the world of safety and health.

    These include Construction, Design and Management (CDM) regulations and forthcoming alterations in health and safety Sentencing Council guidance.

    The pair of bodies hope they can help to increase safety and health standards throughout construction engineering services as well as the wider building sector.

    Electrical body hosts safety forums

    The electrical group and the BESA are staging four Thursday events over the next 12 weeks. Things kick-off on February 11 in Newport, Wales. Then the forum moves on to London’s Stratford City on February 25.

    The safety meeting hits the Midlands on April 14 when it reaches Rugby before ending its tour in Leeds a week later.

    Tim Rook, technical director of BESA, says its tie-up with ECA makes a worthy contribution in bettering safety and health standards.

    He says this is not only the case with construction engineering services but the building trade as a whole.

    Work health and safety to benefit

    Paul Reeve, business services director for the ECA, says work health and safety can only benefit from the new partnership.

    He describes the development of working together on the four forthcoming events as “exciting”.

    It is just part of a broader relationship to help spread the awareness message, besides setting standards on the construction services industry’s safety and health issues, he adds.
