B&CE get thumbs up on vision for occupational health in construction

We spoke at the Health in Construction Leadership Group’s CEO Summit on 26 January. B&CE’s Chief Executive, Patrick Heath-Lay, gained overwhelming support from attendees on our vision for improving occupational health in the construction industry.

Good news – we’re on the right track

82% of industry leaders from large construction companies voted ‘yes’ when asked if our proposed occupational health solution was a way forward for the industry.

We have engaged with the industry, finding that contractors agree that more needs to be done to improve how occupational health is implemented in the construction sector.

Over the coming months, we will work with the industry to further develop this solution and ultimately improve the health of construction workers.

We’re working with the construction industry as we continue to develop this occupational health solution.
