    Overhaul for building sector’s workplace health scheme

    Overhaul for building sector’s workplace health scheme

    A national scheme that works to keep the construction industry’s workforce fit and healthy is to be acquired by an organisation that has been providing the sector with financial and welfare benefits for well over half a century.

    And not-for-profit organisation B&CE says its move to acquire Constructing Better Health (CBH) will benefit workers in the construction sector by enabling it to deliver an even better occupational health scheme.

    ‘Scheme will be reformed’

    B&CE, which has been working in the sector since the 40s, says it will reform the current scheme in order to better meet both the current and future occupational health needs of the industry.

    This will be done by setting up various working groups and by consulting with employers and clients in the construction industry.

    B&CE’s chief executive officer, Patrick Health-Lay, says while it has supported CBH’s work ever since it was established 12 years ago, the move to now acquire it will enable an even better scheme to be provided.

    Quick wins

    The initial plans will be for quick wins to improve the current model.

    But following these, B&CE will set out its long-term strategic plan for future industry provision.

    This work will be supported through the formation of a number of working groups, taken forward jointly with the construction industry and Health and Safety sector, to identify the future needs.
