Jackson Civil Engineering signs up to Constructing Better Health

04/03/2010

Jackson Civil Engineering has signed up to the Constructing Better Health scheme, which offers information and software to help with the management of employee work related health data.

The CHAT (Construction Health Action Toolkit) database and software package offered by CBH enables Jackson to create an occupational health action plan for each worker. The associated health surveillance and monitoring will help to ensure that Jackson’s workers are not damaging their health in the course of their work.

Richard Neall, chief executive of Jackson Civil Engineering, said: “There are few things more important to us than the health of our employees. We are delighted that there is now a nationally recognised body that can help us manage construction employee health information. Signing up to Constructing Better Health is an important step in our quest to be an exemplary employer with the best interests of our workforce at the heart of what we do.”

As a member of the scheme, Jackson’s employees will be able to carry a CBH health card which identifies them to site managers as having completed ‘fitness for task’ assessments and relevant health checks.

Michelle Aldous, chief executive of Constructing Better Health, said: “Companies like Jackson Civil Engineering are stealing a march on their competitors by taking the health of their workforce very seriously. Better health surveillance and management systems not only benefit employees, but they also demonstrate to clients that work-related health is a top priority. This is something that many clients are telling us is crucial to the contracts they are issuing.”
