International Safety and Health Construction Co-ordinators' Organisation (ISHCCO)

Richard Habgood

CEO

"Working together to manage stress is an active campaign for ISHCCO. For all actors within the construction process allowing sufficient time and resources to properly prepare and manage activities is of paramount importance for the coordination of safety and health at temporary or mobile construction sites. Initially, our attention focuses on the directly involved parties such as clients, project supervisors, contractor’s designers and their employees. In the management of this construction process, stress is generated but with our member’s help all actors can manage this by co-operating and working well with each other. Outside of these actors we must not forget all indirect parties such as manufacturers’ and suppliers of construction materials and equipment including all others that can have an impact on the environment of the construction sites. The safety campaign 'Working together to manage stress” will certainly help us to ensure good working practices for the management of health and safety risk within a construction project, and as an overarching international organisation of Safety and Health Coordinators, we see us obliged to fully support this campaign and to promote it through all our members, and beyond."
