Irish Construction Industry Partners Working For A Safer Workplace

Objective 3

The Construction Safety Partnership
Worker Engagement, Representation, Training, and Occupational Health

Worker engagement has been an important element in the CSPAC programmes since its inception and continues to be so via the Safety Representative programme. The CSPAC was the driving force behind the inclusion in legislation for mandatory Construction Safety Representatives on larger sites.

This objective will seek to;

  • Provide on line guidance for Construction Safety Representatives.
  • Continue to work with the National Irish Safety Organisation (NISO) on the provision of the Safety Representative Training Programme.
  • Promote the up skilling of workers and the development of Behavioural Based Safety.
  • Have regulatory bodies seek out and identify positive interventative approaches and include in site inspection report.
  • Have safety conversations and positive reinforcement engrained into the site workers safety agenda.
  • Continue to support the Construction Safety Representative of the Year Award to recognise individuals who in their role as Safety Representatives have made outstanding efforts to improve safety.
  • Work with the Construction Workers Health Trust (CWHT) to raise the profile of health issues in the industry
  • Revise the CSPAC / Joint Safety Council Site Safety Representative documentation
