Innovation and Health and Safety


Major projects are environments of change. Change in the form of digital technology, new applications for which are emerging every month, and in the changing workforce, with five generations of employees now often present on site or in the project. Yet, the statistics for 2018–19 indicate a plateau in the improvement of health and safety in the construction industry and suggest that we have lost our way, with an annual average for fatalities that has been unchanged for the last ten years.

This Major Projects Association seminar on innovation and health and safety aimed to highlight where technology is leading the way to safer workplaces and help organisations understand the forces that constrain innovation and chamion the strategies for change.
