Breathe Freely in Construction roadshow 2017 - In conjunction with sponsors RVT Group



We are pleased to bring a series of Breathe Freely workshop events, sponsored by RVT Group. These breakfast events will:

  1. Review the Breathe Freely campaign to date - in particular looking at some of the new developments including the HI standard tool for managing workplace health risks and the audit scheme we are developing and also, looking at the new course, Certificate in Controlling Health Risks in Construction (CCHRC).
  2. Discuss examples of actions taken on health and how Breathe Freely materials have been used, and of how occupational hygiene has been embedded and the impact it has had.
  3.  Discuss key and emerging issues on health in the sector, and share ideas on the resources needed which we could develop as part of the campaign going forwards.


These events are free to attend, and are aimed at anyone working in construction who is responsible for the health of workers on site – these events will help you to improve your understanding of workplace health risks and importantly, equip you to better recognise and manage the risks on construction sites.


All events will run from 08:30 – 12:00 and breakfast will be provided.


Dates and locations are as follows:

October 27th, Edinburgh, Surgeons' Hall

November 15th, London, The Hallam
