CCS has launched its new 'Spotlight on...' initiative

The Considerate Constructors Scheme has launched its new ‘Spotlight on…’ initiative which aims to look at different areas associated with improving the image of construction, and hopes to raise awareness among registered sites and companies on how they can help with the issue.

Each area highlighted in ‘Spotlight on…’ will feature facts on the topic, as well as information on what the UK, and more specifically the construction industry, is doing to help tackle the issue. Also included are examples of best practice that have been witnessed by the Scheme’s Monitors when visiting registered sites and companies.

The Scheme’s website now features the new ‘Spotlight on…’ section (found under CCS) where it is hoped that the industry will use it as the first place to look to access more information about various issues currently affecting the industry.

‘Spotlight on…’ aims to raise awareness of important issues and provide useful information to registered sites and companies, but it is hoped that this knowledge will then be thought about and developed across the thousands of construction sites operating in the UK.

The first area the Scheme’s shining a spotlight on is the issue of cycle safety and how the UK, and the industry, is promoting cycle safety.
