Construction Industry support
The focus over the years on reducing the number of accidents on construction sites has generated impressive results. However, there are some real issues and concerns surrounding Ill Health currently within the Construction environment and the same effort must be afforded to Ill-Health management. Attendance on this course is heavily supported and recommended by The Health in Construction Leadership Group (HCLG), Construction Industry Training Board (CITB), Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and BOHS Breathe Freely.

- Elevated incidence of contact dermatitis for workers in the construction industry
- Occupational deafness and HAVS still problematic (LFS)
