How do I manage sick leave and absences?

Working in construction naturally exposes people to a higher level of risk and potential accidents simply because of the nature of the work.

That’s why properly managing sick leave is key. It prevents smaller issues progressing into long-term, chronic problems. And we show you exactly how to do that in our guide to managing sickness absences in the construction industry.

How important are risk assessments in construction?

It’s hard to overstate how crucial risk assessments are to the safe running of your business. And it’s a legal requirement to carry out thorough risk assessments for all the tasks you undertake.

Our introduction to risk assessments guide is a great place to start to take you through the five core steps of completing a risk assessment.

Plus, if you work with hazardous substances, our 5 simple steps to COSHH risk assessments will help you decipher risks and put protective measures in place.

And we’ve taken a closer look at construction-specific Health & Safety checks in our Construction Health & Safety checklist.
