The Considerate Constructors Scheme has recently held webinars with those registered with the Scheme to assist them with gaining further insight on the updates and developments of the scoring and monitoring areas within the Code of Considerate Practice and Checklist for 2022.
The structure of the Code has been reduced from five sections to three, for improved clarity:
- Respect the Community (includes appearance)
- Care for the Environment
- Value their Workforce (includes site safety)
Each of the three Code sections focus on areas of industry challenge including:
- Community – increased focus on pre-start community meetings and agreeing community needs, new expectation for planned disturbance abatement, and new expectation to demonstrate the delivery of agreed positive impact.
- Environment – clearer requirements to identify environmental concerns and address these, a new expectation to set and record carbon emissions targets, and a new expectation to maintain/or improve the natural environment.
- Workforce – clearer requirements to define EDI/FIR commitments, monitor performance and provide an accessible concern reporting process, a new expectation to define a wellbeing plan and review and record its effectiveness, clearer expectations regarding welfare facilities.
The Checklist has been designed to be a single Checklist for all registration types, a “Registered Activity”, means site, Ultra Site, supplier, company, sub-contractor, or main contractor.
