Construction is one of the most regulated industries, yet, the sector also has the highest number of injuries and fatalities.


Compliance can be difficult to achieve in the construction industry, for a few reasons:

Complex regulations
The UK construction industry is subject to a wide range of regulations, including health and safety, environmental, and building codes. These regulations can be complex and difficult to navigate, especially for smaller companies with limited resources.

Lack of enforcement
While regulations exist, they are not always effectively enforced, which can lead to a culture of non-compliance. This can be due to a lack of resources or political will, among other factors.

Fragmented industry
The UK construction industry is highly fragmented, with many small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) operating alongside larger firms. It is often the case businesses rely on contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and other parties. This can make it difficult to establish consistent standards across the industry and can lead to a lack of coordination when it comes to compliance.

Overall, achieving compliance in the UK construction industry requires a concerted effort from all stakeholders, including regulators, companies, and workers. It may require a cultural shift towards a more proactive approach to compliance, as well as greater investment in training and resources to support compliance efforts.
