Constructing Better Health

In a new white paper, Constructing Better Health (CBH) outlines a strategic
framework for managing occupational health in the construction industry. Titled
'New Health Horizons', the paper sets out how to improve workers' conditions
and health to reduce risks of future litigation.

According to Michelle Aldous, chief executive of Constructing Better Health and
commissioner of the report, "The construction industry's current occupational
health framework is not up to the task. It is leaving the construction sector
open to crippling health liabilities that will drive skills out of the sector
and potentially force construction and infrastructure companies into
unnecessary recruitment, training and litigation costs."

A copy of the CBH 20 page White Paper is available.
