Considerate construction checklist updated
The Considerate Constructors Scheme has launched a new checklist of best-practice criteria to support the construction sector in doing its utmost to boost the image of the industry.
The checklist will be used during visits to construction sites, companies and suppliers to assess the performance of industry stakeholders against the Code of Considerate Practice.
Among the latest additions to the checklist are questions designed to determine whether the sector is doing enough to tackle problems caused by the shortfall in skilled labour such as how sites are playing their part in improving the overall image of the industry and thus helping to attract and retain the workforce of the future.
Another new section is aimed at tackling the issue of illegal workers and modern slavery, and asks how sites are monitoring the legitimacy and competency of their staff.
Members of the scheme now have until May 1 to familiarise themselves with the updated checklist before it is put into practice during assessments.
