View full documentAs long ago as 1946 the World Health Organisation defined health as a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Occupational ill-health episodes can also be considered as ‘slow accidents’. Health has often been the poor relative of safety in the term ‘health and safety’. The SHE task force believes that there is an urgent need to consider and address occupational health in construction.
The task force has produced a Guide to Managing Occupational Health. The task force is currently working on a briefing note on occupational stress – If you are interested in helping with this please contact ECI.
