Welcome to Constructing Better Health (CBH). The not-for-profit organisation committed to improving the health of the Construction, Building Services and FM sector workforces.
CBH is responsible for delivering the National Scheme for the management of occupational health in the construction industry. It focuses on five key areas:
- Setting industry standards for both work-related health issues, and competency of occupational health provision
- Building a construction-specific knowledge portal
- Centralising the collection of work-related health data
- The transmission of fit-for-task data to enable employers to manage work-related health risks at site level
- A referral route through to specialists in the field of return to work and rehabilitation
The benefits to the industry and workforce are already being realised by our major clients.
“Protecting the health of construction workers is of critical importance to Crossrail and occupational health has a key role to play in identifying and controlling health risks.
Through the adoption of Constructing Better Health standards and the implementation of Crossrail’s own occupational health standard we are targeting frontline personnel to ensure they are fit for work and fit for life.”
Andy Mitchell, Programme Director
“CBH has developed in leaps and bounds in a short time. From a business and moral viewpoint, I believe collaborating with them is of huge benefit to ASDA. Through CBH we want to put guidelines and KPIs in place to ensure we are growing sound occupational health practices with our construction supply chain. We will be targeting safety critical workers in the first instance.”
Clive Johnson, Health and Safety Manager
“ProCure21+ is seen as a case study in best practice for
the implementation of frameworks by NAO and OGC. Working with CBH we want to encourage our supply chains to improve their management of the health of those that deliver the projects under the framework. Working with the CBH and through the CBH client charter we will encourage all our framework contractors and their supply chains to develop their approach to the management of occupational health.”
Cliff Jones, Senior Policy & Performance Manager
