CICV Forum to host health and safety webinar to update industry on latest developments

The Construction Industry Coronavirus (CICV) Forum is to host a health and safety webinar, which will deliver updates and the latest developments to help the sector continue its safe recovery.

The free online session will take place on Wednesday 26 August at 11am and will be hosted by Becky Crosland, health and safety adviser at the Building Engineering Services Association and chair of the CICV Forum’s health and safety sub-group.

The webinar will also cover the following:

  • Updates on the two-metre distancing rule
  • Personal behaviour
  • Customer behaviour
  • R number update in specific areas
  • Reminder about normal hazards.

The new webinar follows four online CICV Forum sessions in May and June that dealt with pressing issues including health and safety, cashflow, contracts and a range of employment matters including returning to work and unfurloughing.

“Since our first health and safety webinar on 27 May, much has changed in the world of construction, and it is important that everyone is aware of the new developments that may impact them directly,” said Becky.  

“This new seminar will offer a clear and concise update on the most relevant working practices and health and safety issues, and delegates will also have the opportunity to ask questions.

“We had a tremendous response to our previous health and safety webinar and it is clear that there is a hunger out there for practical information that can be followed in our everyday working lives to help keep everyone safe.”

In addition to the health and safety webinar, the CICV Forum is also planning a series of free online training sessions in September and October, which will offer in-depth advice to help businesses improve their commercial and contractual awareness on construction projects.
