Helping the industry work safely for over forty years, the Construction H&S Manual, also known as the ‘Blue Book’, is a one-stop shop for information and practical guidance on all health and safety issues that affect the construction process.

Martin Worthington, Member of the Drafting Panel and SHEQ Director of Morgan Sindall Construction and Infrastructure Ltd, said:

“For good practical up to date advice on health and safety matters, the Construction H&S Manual is a must for everyone involved in construction. Working with Build UK will ensure it is even more relevant on a day to day basis as the ‘go to’ source of information for all things health and safety. It will also keep the manual up to date with industry practices, and provide the more collaborative approach we all want.”
