Focus areas for 2021 and beyond


Preventing work-related ill health in the construction industry

At meetings held in March and April 2021, there were discussions about what areas the HCLG should focus on moving forwards, and it was agreed that these should continue to be Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs), Mental Health and Respiratory Health.


These were the areas which were highlighted by the previous members survey and are also in line with the Construction Leadership Council priorities.


Working groups are developing plans for each of these areas which include short term aims (quick wins) as well as some medium/longer term objectives, and how/by who could this be achieved.
