UKATA has been welcomed as a new member of the supporter’s community of the Considerate Constructors Scheme, a not-for-profit, independently managed organisation that supports and guides positive change in the construction industry.

The Scheme’s remit is to help constructors improve their behaviours and the impact of construction activity, through their ‘Code of Considerate Practice’ which focuses on three key areas:

  • Respecting the community
  • Caring for the environment
  • Valuing the workforce

The Scheme is voluntary , and those who register commit to conform to their Code and work to raise their standards above and beyond it.

The aim of the new relationship is to raise standards in the industry by promoting the profile of both organisations and their missions.

Scheme Supporters play a vital role across a range of different areas which can positively impact the construction industry, such as providing training and support for future recruits, helping to raise awareness of health issues, or providing support directly to the workforce across industry.

Speaking on the new collaboration, UKATA Chief Operating Officer, Craig Evans said:

I am delighted to become supporters of the Considerate Constructors Scheme and welcome the collaboration wholeheartedly.

The newly formed partnership will benefit both organisations by raising asbestos and health & safety awareness across industry and promote the benefit of UKATA asbestos training to Considerate Constructors Scheme registered contractors.”

Amit Oberoi, Considerate Constructors Scheme Executive Chairman said:

Collaborations across industry are key to positively influence changes in behaviour, and we are delighted to have UKATA on board as a Scheme Supporter to help us increase our respective reach across the sector.”
