Policy & Activities

Health and safety

HBF members are committed to ensuring that all aspects of Health and Safety are a priority not only on all their sites but in their offices as well.

The HBF provides full support to the Home Builders Health and Safety Forum, and in 2012 fully supported the revitalising of the forums health and safety charter to drive further improvement in the performance of the sector. The Charter was first developed in 2004 in response to concerns raised by Government in respect of injuries in the construction industry and the new charter builds on the  tremendous amount of work has been done by the forum members since its original launch.

The Health and Safety Charter  is backed by an annual action plan looking at key areas of improvement and the forum meets on a quarterly basis to review issues and challenges affecting the industry.
