CIP H&S Manual Updates

Construction Health and Safety Manual Updates

CIP’s Construction Health and Safety Manual has been updated, and the amendment packs will be available late June. CIP continue their work with Build UK Members to ensure the Construction Health and 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 Mace and the NFRC.

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. The latest updates include:

  • An update to the First Aid Section following new HSE Guidance issued in Feb 2024
  • An update to CSCS Card information, Build UK Training Standards, FAQs and CSCS list of Occupations
  • Updates to the guidance on the Diving at Work Regulations and the Register of Legislation
  • A general update to the Asbestos Section following new HSE website information
  • New guidance on Pipe Coil Trailers
  • A major revision to the Fire Section as a result of the new JCOP and Building Safety Regulations
  • Reference updates to the Quarrying Section
  • A general update throughout to the Overhead and Underground Services Section
  • An update to the Building Safety Act Section; and
  • The Supports and Fixings Section following the new BSI Standard – BS 8539:2012+A1:2021

“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.”
