CITB’s Be Fair Framework
A key requirement of the Scheme’s Code of Considerate Practice for registered sites, companies and suppliers is to provide a workplace where everyone is respected, treated fairly, encouraged and supported.
While the Scheme has seen significant progress in this area over recent years, it is clear that much work still needs to be done and CITB has been working alongside the construction industry to develop the BeFair Framework which was launched in June 2014.
Developed in partnership with Constructing Equality, this new approach aims to transform working environments across all segments of construction. It will address all forms of discrimination, negative cultures and practices to create a fair, inclusive and respectful industry for everyone. The framework accreditation is the very first of its kind and is awarded by CITB to achieving companies. It will help employers discover the business and commercial benefit of fully understanding, embracing and harnessing the diversity of the workforce, their customers and the culturally diverse environment in which they work.
