Survey to tackle occupational health concerns

A new survey has been launched aiming to provide data to help contractors to promote occupational health wellbeing among their staff.

The survey has been launched by the Electrical Contractors’ Association, the Building Engineering Services Association (BESA) and Constructing Better Health, following the recent Occupational Health Summit in London and is supported by Construction News.

The survey findings will be shared with key stakeholders across the industry in the second quarter of this year. The occupational health survey can be completed here, and is open until Wednesday April 13.

ECA director of business services Paul Reeve said: ”Our survey – which is aimed primarily at employers – aims to find out much more about the current situation in occupational health, to give us an informed baseline for helping contractors to engage with both physical, and mental, health issues.”

BESA director of technical Tim Rook said: “The contracting and construction environment is one of the most demanding sectors to work in, and the health of those working in our sector should be considered vital to success. By using the results of this survey we will be able to target and promote best practice, to help both on-site operatives and managers.”

Constructing Better Health chairman Bob Blackman said:  “Our collaborative survey will help us to further demystify the cloudy perceptions about occupational health and target those areas where our members and industry colleagues aren’t making the most of the resources at hand.”
