Build UK partner Construction Industry Publications (CIP) is offering all Build UK members an exclusive 30% discount on its Construction Health & Safety Manual. 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.

The online manual is updated on an ongoing basis with the latest legislative changes and guidance providing a wide range of benefits for all businesses in the contracting supply chain:

• 24-hour access to the manual wherever there is an internet connection via computer, mobile or tablet
• Multi-user licences available based on concurrent usage
• One user name and password for all users
• Email notifications of updates
• Complete section PDFs available to print out for use at will
• CD-ROM and printed formats available for non-internet connected sites*.

Build UK is working with CIP to ensure the Construction H&S Manual includes industry-recognised health and safety policies and standards, such as the updated Build UK and IPAF guidance on MEWPs. This integrated approach aims to improve the knowledge and practices of those on site without duplicating information or publishing conflicting advice. 

Jason Rowley, Chairman of the Drafting Panel and Health & Safety Director of Build UK member Carillion, 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.”
