Statement of Intent

Sharing our success

Everyone can take pride in Great Britain’s world-class reputation for health and safety and promote its success at home and abroad. Creating a world-class system is a goal we can all unite around and benefit from as a source of inspiration and achievement, and can also be pleased to support. The HGBWW strategy has largely concerned itself with improving standards in Great Britain. But we should also look to share best practice and the latest thinking and innovation around GB and the world. This can help influence health and safety systems at home and abroad and make it easier for British businesses to expand into new markets and territories. The work may also bring commercial opportunities for selling British health and safety ‘products’ or consultancy.

Intent

  1. Promote examples of how Great Britain’s built environment industry develops and adapts its approach to the elimination and control of risk in order to improve continually the health and safety standards on site.
  2. To inspire and encourage companies of all sizes and complexity and their representative bodies to share good practice in order to inspire and influence others in the sector.
  3. To encourage all built environment companies to continually review their approach to managing risk as they seek to match their performance with the best that industry has to offer.
  4. To capture, promote and share good practice examples arising from the outcomes of the other CONIAC working groups.

  6. To ensure that improved worker involvement is explicit in the plan of work for the Sharing our Success WG.
