Build UK members contribute to latest updates to CIP Construction H&S and Environmental Manuals

Construction Industry Publications (CIP) has continued its work with Build UK to ensure the Construction Health & Safety and Environmental manuals include industry recognised health, safety and environmental policies and standards.

To this end, CIP works with both Build UK Contractor and Trade Associations Members, including BCSA, IPAF, CPA and Mace.

This integrated approach aims to improve the knowledge and practices of those on site. Plus, it does this without duplicating information or publishing conflicting advice.

What does the latest update include?

The latest Health & Safety Manual updates, published in mid-December include:

  • An update to the information on the new Building Safety Regulator in both the Legal and Building Safety sections.
  • Update to the Register of Legislation to include the secondary legislation to the Building Safety Act.
  • A new section on Diabetes in the workplace
  • An update to the Build UK draft Drugs and Alcohol policy with regards to corporate hospitality situations
  • In the Work at Height section there is additional guidance about security and unauthorised access to scaffolding.
  • An update to the MEWPs guidance (Dog Leads and withdrawal of PAS91)
  • An update to the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) Notification Procedure for Cranes
  • The BCSA has updated the Erection of Structures section throughout
  • Additional guidance and references in Radio Frequency Fields

“A must for everyone in construction”

Neil Rosiak, Member of the Drafting Panel and HSE Director of Build UK member Tilbury Douglas Construction, said:

“For good practical up to date advice on health and safety matters, the Construction H&S Manual is a must for everyone involved in construction. Working with Build UK will ensure it is even more relevant on a day-to-day basis as the ‘go to’ source of information for all things health and safety. It will also keep the manual up to date with industry practices and provide the more collaborative approach we all want.”
