Respiratory Health Summit
2 Feb 2021
Over 340 people attended the virtual Action on Respiratory Health summit this week where HCLG and RVT Group joined forces with the HSE, BOHS, CDP, Tideway, HS2, Balfour Beatty and Skanska to deliver a series of informative talks and videos about the importance of protecting respiratory health on site.
The event opened with a hard-hitting keynote presentation from Professor David Fishwick, Consultant Respiratory Physician and the HSE’s Chief Medical Advisor.
An expert panel then shared their own perspective on approaches to respiratory health in construction, and discussed questions which had been submitted by attendees in advance, including:
- What are the biggest barriers/ challenges to implementing effective respiratory controls on site and how do we overcome them?
- Who's responsibility is respiratory health?
- Can we say "RIP to RPE"?
- What impact has COVID-19 had on respiratory health on site?
