The Scheme was proud to take considerate
construction one step further this year with the launch
of Ultra Sites.

While on the subject of successful
collaboration, the Scheme is
proud to report a very successful
first year of Supplier Registration

sites and companies.

Excitement is building as the
Scheme prepares for its eagerly-
anticipated Improving The Image
Of Construction (ITIOC) event.
There is still time to book a place
on this not-to-be missed showcase
featuring a wealth of advice,
support, expertise and innovative
ideas from both the Scheme and
other industry organisations.
September will also see the launch
of the Scheme’s latest instalment
of ‘Spotlight on…’ which will be
focusing on the serious subject of
occupational cancers. Sadly in the
past, the health profession and the
construction industry were not

Our ‘Spotlight on…occupational
cancers’ provides a wealth of
information for everybody to help
reduce the risks of these diseases.
There is plenty more to read in this
, so I
hope you enjoy it and thank you for
your continued support.
