Constructing Better Health


Important update


We’ve made the difficult decision to close our current occupational health scheme, Constructing Better Health (CBH) and to stop development of People’s Health, our proposed new occupational health system for the construction industry.
In December last year, we paused the People’s Health build. This gave us time to re-assess its viability in light of delays and rising costs, as it became increasingly complex to deliver.
At the same time, CBH has seen a decrease in demand from the industry over many years.
Constructing Better Health (CBH) is a not-for-profit scheme dedicated to improving the standard of occupational health management in the construction industry.

We work with the industry to help develop more efficient and user-friendly work-related health management in construction.

More about how to contact us

Did you know…

  • In the UK, construction workers are at least 100 times more likely to die from an occupational disease than from an accident
  • Up to 1.2m working days are lost per year, due to work-related ill health in the construction industry alone

How we can help you

We don't provide occupational health services. We leave that to Occupational Health Service Providers (OHSPs) which are accredited by us.

We provide resources to help contractors and their OHSPs to do their jobs more efficiently whilst protecting workers’ health.

As a member we support you with:

  • Our bespoke risk management resource called CHAT (Construction Health Action Toolkit), enabling efficient management of work-related health at construction site level.
  • A suite of risk management resources
  • National Standards for Occupational Health in Construction
