Construction Safety Partnership Advisory Committee

It is proposed that the Construction Safety Partnership and the HSA Construction Advisory Committee have been combined thereby establishing the Construction Safety Partnership Advisory Committee (CSPAC)

The new structure is a reflection of the need for a renewed focus and increased action on safety and health in the construction sector. The combination of both groups is seen as having significant potential to be a key driver for this.

Message from Patricia King, General Secretary ICTU

"Congress welcomes this three year plan and pledges to continue to play a leading role in its implementation.  Now that the recovery has begun it is important that those returning to work and new entrants can work in a safe and healthy environment.  I know that the unions and employers are attempting to agree decent terms and conditions of employment in place of the race to the bottom that occurred after the Supreme Court struck down the Registered Employment Agreement System in 2013.  The construction industry cannot be safe as long as the widespread abuse of bogus self-employment is undermining decent employment in construction.  it is also important that we achieve a system where those who are carrying out work at site level are registered as having the qualifications and skills required to carry out their function safely, are encouraged to work with the CSPAC to achieve its aim."

Tom Parlon, CIFMessage from Tom Parlon Director General, CIF

"The Construction Industry Federation is committed to driving health and safety improvements in the sector.  We welcome this continued collaborative approach with our industry partners to work together for the common good.  the safety and wellbeing of those who work in the industry or are affected by its activities are of paramount importance and our continued co-operation to achieve our common goals is a key part of our strategy.  A lot of work has been done under previous agreements and plans and with this new 3 year plan, we hope to build on these achievements.  key priority objectives have been identified as part of this plan and I confirm that CIF will work to ensure that the objectives set out here are achieved."

Martin O'Halloran, HSAMessage from Martin O'Halloran, Chief Executive, HSA

"The Authority welcomes this the most recent phase of partnership for the improvements of safety, health and welfare in the construction sector.  With the increasing growth of the sector new challenges are arising and need to be met to ensure that growth isn't achieved to the detriment of workers safety and health.  I welcome the commitment by all partners involved in the Construction Safety partnership Advisory Committee.  The Authority will continue to support the initiatives of the SPCAS and to look forward to the benefit of the advisory function of the committee."
