The Health in Construction Leadership Group has confirmed a new summit event at the ExCel conference centre on 21 April.
The event follows the launch of its new occupational health campaign on 21 January 2016, when Construction Industry leaders met at the first ever Construction Health Summit to explore ways of eradicating health issues in the construction sector by tackling some of the health risks of occupational diseases.
The inaugural Health in Construction Leadership Group event saw figureheads from the industry make pledges to cut incidences of deaths caused by asbestos and silica and to reduce lung problems caused by exposure to contaminants such as diesel fumes.
Commitments were also made to work cooperatively to take a big step forward and treat health like safety.
Speakers at the April event will include Professor Dame Carol Black, a special adviser to the Department of Health, and Dr Richard Judge, HSE chief executive.
The summit will include a number of discussions focussing on integrated health management, maintaining impetus on respiratory risks and a new industry approach to mental health. A plan of action will be developed and monitored.
