  • The European Commission's strategy on CSR 2011-2014: achievements, shortcomings and future challenges - Public Survey

    The European Commission (EC) has launched this public consultation survey to gather feedback on the implementation of its most recent policy on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), outlined in the Communication “A renewed EU strategy 2011-14 for Corporate Social Responsibility” (COM(2011) 681). Specifically, it seeks comments on achievements, shortcomings and future challenges.

    The results will be summarised in a technical report and further inform the preparation of the plenary meeting of the multi-stakeholder forum on CSR, which is planned for November 2014. These two events will provide the most essential input for the EC’s work on the direction of its CSR policy after 2014.

    Please send us your comments on the EC’s consultation survey questions to consultation@iosh.co.uk by 12 August 2014.

  • Proposals to replace the Construction Design and Management Regulations 2007

    This Consultation Document seeks views on HSE's proposal to replace the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 (CDM 2007) and withdraw the Approved Code of Practice. The proposed Regulations implement in Great Britain the requirements of Directive 92/57/EEC on the implementation of minimum safety and health requirements at temporary or mobile construction sites, apart from certain requirements which are implemented by the Work at Height Regulations 2005. HSE state that:

    "The proposals support the strategic objectives of improved co-ordination, better value for money, improved efficiency and use of technological changes in Construction 2025, the Government's industrial strategy for construction."

    The main proposed changes are to: make the Regulations easier to understand; replace the CDM co-ordinator role with the principal designer; replace the ACOP with targeted guidance; replace the detailed and prescriptive requirements for individual and corporate competence with a more generic requirement; align notification requirements with the Directive and apply the Regulations to domestic clients but in a proportionate way.

    The proposals will be of interest to clients of construction work (including householders as clients), designers, principal contractors, contractors, sub-contractors including the self-employed, CDM co-ordinators, safety representatives and anyone else with an interest in construction projects.
