All members of British Precast are committed to reducing harm and have signed the Health & Safety Charter.
The Code of Practice for Safe Installation brings together best practice within the industry and has the interest of those involved in the design, speciﬁcation, use and erection of architectural and structural precast. This document is near completion and will be published later on in 2018.
The Safer by Competence scheme initiative champions the principle that all employees and contractors in the sector should move to be provably competent in their roles within a defined timeframe.
The Safeprecast app has been developed with guidance from a working group drawn from the industry and builds on the already successful ‘Safequarry’ and ‘Safer by’ suite of services developed by the Mineral Products Association (MPA).
British Precast holds two Safety & Health Awareness Days (SHADs) annually for our members. SHADs are proved to be an effective means of sharing good practice through both practical demonstrations and formal presentations.
