The aim of the Buildsafe-NI initiative is to eliminate deaths and substantially reduce injuries in the Northern Ireland construction industry.

Buildsafe-NI initiative

The initiative aims to do this through improvements in the application and management of health and safety processes within the industry.

Contractors, consultants (and their supply chains) tendering for public sector works contracts must be able to satisfy the government construction client that they have the resources and competence to manage health and safety.

As a minimum, they must demonstrate that they are capable of meeting the requirements of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations (NI) 2007 and other relevant regulations, approved codes of practice and recognised guidance.
