2015 Scheme changes

From the 1st January 2015, the Scheme will be making a number of changes to ensure it can continue offering the highest levels of service to every registered site, company and supplier.

Spotlight on... language

Spotlight on... language

The Considerate Constructors Scheme is pleased to publish its new 'Spotlight on...' initiative which focuses on the use of inappropriate, offensive and foul language. The Scheme's 'Spotlight on...' aims to look at different areas associated with improving the image of construction, and hopes to raise awareness among registered sites, companies and suppliers on how they can help with the issue. A CITB survey, conducted earlier in 2014 and answered by over 500 construction professionals, revealed that sexist, racist, and homophobic language is not simply still a problem on sites and in the construction industry as a whole, but is unfortunately still quite prevalent. The survey discovered that: 61% had heard sexist language at work in the past year, and 14% said they heard it once a week or more More than half (53%) of respondents had heard racist language...
