About this event

If you wish to attend this event please call 020 7665 2226.

In the last decade, workplace injury in construction has dropped 40%, backing the sentiment of many practitioners that the industry has matured enough to self-regulate. On the other hand, the overall rate of work-related stress, depression and anxiety has remained broadly the same, broadening the arsenal of those who say that the industry should continue to be regulated by the government.

The 2015 Construction (Design and Management) regulations have solved many issues, but have also created great confusion, especially around the role and responsibilities of the Principal Designer.

The third ICE Health and Safety conference will provide a platform for advancing the debate around these issues, aiming to bring clarity to the industry and showcase how health and safety can be dealt with properly right from the design and planning phase, through the board of directors to the last person on site.
