The Industry Safety Steering Group (ISSG) was set up to report on the progress of the construction industry in delivering culture change and to challenge and hold industry to account.
The ISSG was set up in September 2018 and the report covers the first six months of the ISSG’s work.
The report shows that overall the ISSG has been pleased with the work and progress that the building industry has demonstrated on culture change. However, the report makes clear that progress has been slow across parts of the industry and this is due in part to the fragmented nature of the construction industry. The ISSG is clear that there is still much more work. The report states that the government’s publication of the consultation, Building a Safety Future will help the ISSG to take a much firmer stance in holding the industry to account and ensure there is real lasting change.
The government has welcomed the ISSG’s report and in particular the progress it demonstrates in some parts of the industry to deliver culture change. The government also recognises that more work needs to be done and that ISSG has a continuing and vital role in ensuring that change is made to support better building safety.
