SUMMIT THEME

The summit theme ‘The Role of Procurement and SCM in Construction H&S’ focuses on issues and processes related to appointing and managing stakeholders in terms of H&S. This focus will include the interface between clients, construction project managers, construction H&S agents, designers, quantity surveyors, contractors (construction managers), subcontractors (construction managers), and suppliers, including construction H&S managers and officers, and other stakeholders. The theme was identified due to the role of procurement and SCM in H&S, the issues that arise, and mention of the supply chain relative to ‘accidents’, and collapses in the media.   

OBJECTIVES
