Health and Safety Resources

HBF and its members are committed to ensuring Health and Safety is a priority across the home building industry.

There are a number of resources and guidance documents available on this page for employers to promote good health and safety working practices in their organisation.

The HBF Health and Safety Committee's working groups work on and produce industry guidance documents. Our guidance documents are created to support the home building industry in improving health and safety standards, and to support SME home builders in meeting industry standards.

HBF also supports and coordinates a number of Health and Safety resources and campaigns for its membership to use.

This page is also designed to showcase other health and safety resources useful for those working in the home building industry.
