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...

To celebrate 5 years of Company Registration and the introduction of Supplier Registration, the Scheme is giving 10 companies the chance to win a year's free registration with the Considerate Constructors Scheme.

Construction Logistics and Cyclist Safety (CLOCS)

Construction Logistics and Cyclist Safety (CLOCS)

A potentially life-saving initiative aimed at reducing collisions involving vulnerable road users and construction vehicles has been released by the Construction Logistics and Cyclist Safety (CLOCS) project. CLOCS, an industry-led project sponsored by Transport for London (TfL) to reduce injuries and deaths due to work-related road risk, has developed the CLOCS Standard for construction logistics: Managing work related road risk. The Standard outlines a common road safety framework for use by the construction logistics industry and aims to achieve far-reaching changes in the way the industry manages potential dangers to cyclists, pedestrians, motorcyclists and other vulnerable road users.  Outlining the Standard, Sir Peter Hendy CBE, London’s Transport Commissioner, said: When a developer and construction company adopts these standards, trucks delivering to their sites will have to meet rigorous safety standards and to date 58 organisations, including many of the...

Road Safety Week 2014 with 10% off Ivor products

Road Safety Week 2014 will run from the 17th to the 23rd November and aims to inspire communities to take action on road safety and promote life-saving messages during the week and beyond. Road Safety Week was set up in 1997 by the road safety charity Brake and takes place every November. Brake promotes road safety awareness, safe and sustainable road use, effective safety policies and offers support to road accident victims. The Scheme is delighted once again to be supporting Road Safety Week 2014, and would like to encourage registered sites, companies and suppliers to get involved with the event and engage with their communities. Last year there was an incredible response from contractors and clients who all supported this valuable initiative with everyone playing an important role in promoting the importance of road safety. The Scheme was...

5 year strategy

5 year strategy

With the importance of the Scheme to the construction industry continuing to grow, in 2013 the Board of the CCS, in consultation with its owners, recognised the need to broaden the range of experiences of Board members by introducing three new non-executive Directors who were not already Scheme Monitors and who could represent three key areas of the industry – large construction companies, SMEs and construction clients. With the newly appointed Board members, the Scheme's Board held two facilitated business planning days to consider the overall direction and future strategy for the Scheme. From these came a revised direction for the Scheme and an updated 5 year strategy: The five year strategy for the Scheme to the end of 2018 is to become the central hub for best practice in considerate construction, to use that information to give advice...
