3.Current industry performance, drivers and requirements

Safety and occupational health

Industrial Strategy for Construction 2025 (drivers for change)

We must build on the achievements of the highest performing projects so that zero harm becomes the norm across the industry.

70% of fatal accidents now occur in the SME sector.

We must address standards on small projects properly so that they match those achieved on larger projects.
