New HSE Supply Chain project to reduce ill health

Previous supply chain project initiatives by the HSE have demonstrated success (see a report by Research Partners Director Claire Tyers and the Institute for Employment Studies on initiatives working on the construction supply chain). Building on this, HSE are launching a new project to improve the control and management of health risks in the construction and maintenance of paving, roads and highways. Following a launch at Transport for London’s offices in Southwark on the 6th October 2011, construction industry representatives will work with the regulator to create ideas for the initiative as well as manage it. Further updates on progress with this project and outcomes of the meeting will be found using this link.
