A cross industry body bringing together all aspects of the construction sector celebrates its 30th birthday. The Construction Industry Council (CIC) was formed on 1 November 1988 with the aim of improving standards across the whole sector and was celebrated at a pan-industry event Thursday 15 November.
Association for Project Safety chief executive, Lesley McLeod said:
“The Construction Industry Council (CIC) plays a vital role in knitting together all the diverse strands of the construction sector. Its job is every bit as important today as when the was founded and, at the Association for Project Safety, we look to the council to help us keep Safety in construction to the forefront.”
