Award winning pensions and welfare organisation B&CE have taken over the national scheme for the management of occupational health in the construction industry; 'Constructing Better Health' (CBH).
B&CE is a not-for-profit organisation that has been providing financial and welfare benefits to the construction industry for the past 70 years and the move comes as the issue of occupational health in construction continues to rise up the industry agenda and it becomes clear that more needs to be done to provide simple and easy to use services to continue to improve occupational health in the sector.
Health & Safety in the Construction industry is of paramount importance and the ALLEN & YORK Health & Safety team partner with a number of local, national and global construction firms to source and supply high calibre safety professionals to ensure standards are being continually met.
Patrick Heath-Lay, Chief Executive Officer of B&CE, said:
“This is a great opportunity to take forward the important work of strengthening occupational health within the construction sector. We want to build on the work that Constructing Better Health has done over the past few years and, following a period of intensive engagement with the sector, launch a new proposition that really delivers for construction workers and employers.
Graham Wren, Chief Executive of Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS), said:
“Since Constructing Better Health was established in 2004 the organisation has grown and now has around 340 employer customers. However, the importance of occupational health in the UK construction industry has grown in recent years and the CSCS Board have concluded that further growth opportunities for CBH can be better realised as part of B&CE.
