Constructing Better Health News Updates

Breathe Freely conference - Grand Central Hotel on 27 April 2016 in Glasgow


You may already be aware than construction workers in the UK are 100 times more likely to die from an occupational disease than a workplace accident.

This worrying figure shows it’s time for change on construction sites - so what’s stopping you from protecting your workers’ health on site right now? What are the barriers that prevent improvements in work-related health on construction sites today?

These are the issues we will be tackling at this event, so join us as we map out the way forward to stopping thousands of deaths each year from occupational disease caused by conditions on construction sites. 

Don’t miss this conference if:
  • you want to focus more on worker health protection, but would like advice on what to prioritise
  • you want to target and control the main hazards that are causing workers’ ill health
  • you are interested in hearing others explain how they achieved best practice in worker health protection on their site so you can do the same
  • you want to identify, share your concerns about, and ultimately remove, the obstacles to protecting workers’ health on your site
  • you know mental health is a big issue on construction sites and are keen to find out about new ways to address this problem.
By attending the Breathe Freely Glasgow conference you will also give a boost to a brilliant charity because the event is being used to support the Lighthouse Club, which supports sick and injured construction workers and their families.
Come and network with like-minded individuals at the conference and take an active role in shaping the future path of work-related health protection in the city.
