New network

A new advisory network has been launched by the HSE. The Construction Industry Advisory Network (CONIAN) brings together a wider representation of organisations and workers across the construction industry. Speaking after the launch Peter Baker, Director of HSE’s Construction Division and Chief Inspector of Construction, said: “CONIAN will not only give the diverse areas of construction industry a voice, it will help HSE and industry to identify and share the many examples of sensible practices and innovation, as well as understand the reasons for poor health and safety performance and behaviours within our communities and reach those who need help.”
