The IOSH Construction Group is a specialist working group run by IOSH members who volunteer their time.
Our aim is to support IOSH members who work or have an interest within the global construction industry.
Our strategy is to liaise and cooperate with leading OSH influential groups and committees to help promote proactive safety and eliminating harm from our work.
To deliver this we represent IOSH on the following:
- CIC H&S Committee
- Each of the UKs CONIAC working groups
- Our committee supports Working Well Together
- CECA HSW Group
- Temporary works Forum
- Asbestos network
- Health Hub Consortium
Over the last few years, we have supported:
- Veterans in Construction & Project RECCE Diabetes in Construction
- Women in Construction
- Diabetes in Construction
We learn from industry leaders and run seminars and webinars on contemporary and engaging construction topics.
Under our previous strategy we looked to enhance the occupational safety and health profession.
The pandemic itself had a positive impact on the reputation of the occupational safety and health profession with employers relying on sound advice from their OSH practitioners to develop COVID safe working practices.
We gave an undertaking to build strategic partnerships through collaboration and to strengthen our influence and impact globally.
These undertakings were particularly evident in the construction industry whereby IOSH along with government and non-government organisations such as the Construction Leadership Council (CLC) and Construction Industry Advisory Council (CONIAC) in the UK, the International Safety & Health Construction Coordinators Organisation (ISHCCO) in Europe and the International Labour Organization (ILO) on the wider international stage collaborated and communicated with their respective national construction industries in order to develop COVID safe working practices.
To build upon the achievements delivered under our previous three-year strategy and to continue to emphasise our vision-a safe and healthy world of work, IOSH have developed our strategy for the next five years Activate 2028.
