Construction supply chains can lead to better management of health and safety processes, it has been claimed.

The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) has worries about the wellbeing of staff in projects where company reputation is not prioritised.

It commissioned Cardiff University to help investigate the issue, discovering that companies are influenced by their clients' demands when it comes to health and safety.

Last month, the wellbeing of construction workers was explored by the Health and Safety Executive, which began a number of visits to sites throughout Scotland in an effort to reduce the number of deaths caused from working at height.

IOSH executive director of policy Dr Luise Vassie said: "Many workers in construction supply chains are far removed from standards at the top which should be filtering down to protect their health, safety and welfare."

However the report found that, in higher-profile projects, the wellbeing of workers is a bigger priority.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801464830-ADNFCR
