About the webinar
This session will look at why measures to limit risk to worker health, as well as worker safety, should be incorporated into project plans and will discuss why health hazards should be considered throughout project design and execution.
Worker health protection in construction is a huge topic but this session will take a brief look at the most significant causal factors of ill-health present in construction and will signpost sources of free information to allow delegates to continue their professional development in this area offline.
The objectives of the session are both to enable delegates to start to consider what health hazards are likely to be present during the execution of a project, whilst still in the planning phase, as well to guide delegates to effective resources that will allow them to plan and execute projects in a way that safeguards health as well as safety.
