Mental Health Awareness in Construction

Share This:

Tuesday 14th May 2019 | 09:00 to 11:00 (registration from 08:30)

Clarion, Elizabeth House, 13-19 Queen Street, Leeds, LS1 2TW

During Mental Health Awareness week, Constructing Excellence Yorkshire & Humber will be joining forces with Leeds law firm Clarion to deliver this very important event looking at mental health in the construction industry and what companies can and are doing to try and reverse the industry’s shocking statistics in this area (data from the Office of National Statistics found that between 2011 and 2015, of the 13,232 in-work suicides recorded, those within the skilled construction and building trades made up 13.2% – despite construction accounting for little over seven per cent of the UK workforce).

THE PANEL

Clare King, Legal Director, Private Client, Clarion

As a trained Mental Health First Aider Clare will share the importance of being aware of mental health issues and the benefit to the workplace. Clare will demonstrate how you can create a more inclusive culture and the initiatives Clarion has put in place.

Joanna Dodd, Senior Associate, Employment, Clarion

Joanna often advises on issues around employees’ mental ill-health and will explain when mental health conditions might be classed as a disability in law and what the employer’s obligations are in this area. Joanna will also discuss the practicalities of managing absence linked to mental health issues, what adjustments might be necessary and appropriate, and how performance/conduct issues (which are or may be linked to an underlying mental health condition) should be dealt with.

Eddie Murphy, Founder of Ollio Consult

Eddie will talk about the need for healthy buildings and the emerging concepts around biophilia in the workplace which incorporate design that promotes mental and physical wellbeing leading to happier, healthier and more focused work teams.

CONSTRUCTING EXCELLENCE AWARDS 2019

Are you a mental health champion?

Clarion are also sponsoring the Health, Safety and Wellbeing category at this year’s awards ceremony which is a topic of particular importance to the firm given the work of its private client and employment teams who are very knowledgeable in this area and are often called on to provide specialist advice.

Entries are particularly encouraged from organisations who are placing employee wellbeing and mental health at the forefront of their health and safety strategy. The forms can be downloaded from the Constructing Excellence Yorkshire and Humber website here .

Saving lives and winning work by meeting CLOCS national standard

Share This:

Constructing Excellence Yorkshire and Humber are pleased to support this initiative taking place in Harrogate on 1st June to help businesses embed and promote health and safety standards in the logistics community. The project is being run by Derek Rees, Chief Executive of SECBE, the regional Constructing Excellence partner for London and the South East.

 

CLOCS Seminar at Tip-ex
Thursday 1 June 2017 at Harrogate Convention Centre
Registration & networking from 13:30. Seminar 14:00 – 16:00

Construction clients, contractors and fleet operators across the UK are adopting the National Standard for Construction Logistics and Community Safety (CLOCS) – to ensure and demonstrate that they are taking all reasonable actions to protect pedestrians, cyclists and other vulnerable road users.

Why? Because over 500 people every year across the UK are killed or seriously injured in incidents involving HGVs when actions by planners, clients, contractors, and fleet operators can help prevent injury, protect drivers and witnesses from emotional trauma, protect business reputation, reduce insurance premiums and meet pre-qual requirements for tenders/contracts.

Join us at the CLOCS Seminar to hear from a range of speakers who will set out why and how they have adopted the CLOCS National Standard.

Speakers are:

  • Introduction to CLOCS – Derek Rees, CLOCS UK Project Director
  • How local authorities are requiring CLOCS through planning and procurement conditions – Davey Robertson, Northumberland County Council
  • How clients require CLOCS through procurement – Neil Cox, HS2
  • How contractors provide the right site conditions and check compliance of fleet operators – Mace
  • National site conditions assessment & directory – Glen Davies, AtoH
  • Update on the Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS)
  • Questions and Answers

#CEYH2016 Awards: Proud to be different!

Share This:

As I write this post we are now just under five days to go until we close for this year’s Constructing Excellence in Yorkshire and Humber awards and we are very excited to see what you have all been up to in the last 12 months. We are really heartened by the response of local companies so far and can’t wait to get stuck into the judging process and organising the rest of the evening. There is still time to get your entries in – follow the links below or visit our dedicated awards page here

Not just your average awards ceremony

Here at the CKE, we take the responsibility of providing the best possible platform to showcase your projects, organisations and individuals extremely seriously, which is why you will never see us run the same event twice! Just like our entrants we aim for our awards ceremony to represent the common themes of our awards in being innovative, collaborative and dynamic.

For instance, at last year’s awards we were the only region to run a selfie competition, which was so successful that it was adopted at the nationals. Not just an excuse to take silly pictures (although that is always welcome), the selfie competition helped to raise the profile of the awards across social media giving extra coverage to the companies involved. We will be running it again this year so don’t forget to bring those phones and snap away!

If you are still undecided, here are just three more reasons why our awards are different and how your business will benefit from being involved,

  • Our dynamic team are all from construction/engineering backgrounds. With over twenty years combined industry experience, we know how to sell what the industry does best
  • Our awards are an experience as well as a ceremony. Every year the team try to do something different on the night itself to ensure the event is memorable for all the right reasons and is a real reward for the individuals and teams who take part. With this year’s Swinging from the Rooftops theme, this year is no exception! We have a number of surprises planned for you on the night – we can’t wait for you to see them!
  • Our added value with our relationships to the National Constructing Excellence network, Yorkshire and Humber Constructing Excellence Club, Leeds Beckett University, Leeds Sustainability Institute and our thinkBIM, Green Vision networks. Going forward there will be plenty of opportunities for our entrants to showcase their work at our breakfast and twilight seminars, our half day conferences and through site visits.

How to enter

Fully inclusive and completely free to enter, we welcome submissions from any organisations, companies &/or project teams involved in delivering building & civil engineering projects in our region over the last 12 months. With 13 categories to choose from we are sure there is one for you! The closing date for entries is 29th April 2016 and all the forms can be downloaded from the links below.
