The United Kingdom’s Considerate Constructors Scheme ­– the national initiative to improve the image of the construction industry which includes demolition companies among its members – has launched a new Monitors’ Checklist.

The checklist is the key method which scheme monitors use to assess and score sites, companies and suppliers’ performance against the Code of Considerate Practice. It came into effect from February 1, with a three-month transition period to ensure all registered members have enough time to become familiar with the new requirements before any changes affect their scores.

The scheme covers around 18,000 sites, companies and supplier visits every year, so the information gathered in the monitors’ checklist provides an essential barometer of how the industry is improving and the issues it needs to tackle.

The most significant changes for 2016 are in the ‘Value their Workforce’ section. A number of new questions have been introduced to help the industry tackle the critical issues such as combatting illegal workers and modern slavery on site and in supply chains, as well as attracting and retaining a skilled and diverse workforce.

Chief executive Edward Hardy said: “Scheme registered sites, companies, suppliers and their clients are demonstrating a continued eagerness to keep raising the bar of considerate construction and improve industry standards across the UK. The new checklist will be a significant driver in helping to achieve this goal.”
