Construction Industry Advisory Network (CONIAN)
The Construction Industry Advisory Network (CONIAN), provides a platform for the dissemination of good practice and behaviour. Its establishment follows the reconstitution of the Construction Industry Advisory Committee (CONIAC) earlier in 2017, which advises the HSE and other relevant stakeholders on developments and risks relating to health and safety in the construction industry. CONIAN will create a platform for the industry to provide information to CONIAC and to promote information produced by HSE.
Chief inspector of construction, Peter Baker said:
“CONIAN will not only give the diverse areas of construction industry a voice, it will help HSE and industry to identify and share the many examples of sensible practices and innovation, as well as understand the reasons for poor health and safety performance and behaviours within our communities and reach those who need help.
"Ultimately, it is through working together with the aim of reducing ill health, death and injury that we will set a direction for managing present and future construction risks.”
