Construction Safety Partnership (Ireland)
“The industry has experienced dramatic change and downsizing since 2007 and employment in 2012 is forecast to be below 100,000. In taking account of this the CSP is dealing with a very different industry dominated by small contractors and small projects and tender bids up to 30% below 2007 rates. Whilst it is encouraging to see lower rates of fatalities and accidents in this high risk industry there are signs that safety standards are slipping on sites.
Following on from the debate and consultation at the Construction Safety Forum in November 2011 the CSP has agreed to focus on five key objectives covering; Design and Procurement, Plant and Equipment, Small contractors safety management system SMP20, Worker Engagement and Representation and Safe Pass and Construction Skills Certification Scheme.
This Olympic year 2012 will provide CSP with new challenges including changes relating to the dissolution of FÁS and Certification through the Further Education and Training Awards Council (FETAC). The CSP Policy on Safe Pass and CSCS (Dec 2011) will be a key area of concentration this year. The CSP, as an alliance of lead organisations dealing with the Construction industry is committed to addressing the targeted actions as outlined in the CSP Programme for 2012."
