Constructing better health receives financial boost

Constructing Better Health, the construction industry's occupational health pilot scheme, received a welcome boost this week when the Association of British Insurers pledged a contribution of 100,000 for 2005, with the potential for a further 100,000 donation in 2006.

The ABI's support for the pilot comes at a key stage as the CBH Board of Directors embark on a major initiative to raise a further 450,000 to fund the project.

Commenting on the ABI's contribution, CBH Chair, George Brumwell CBE said:

'This is fantastic news, this project is probably one of the most important initiatives that the industry has undertaken in recent years. The ABI's generous offer of support shows the commitment to improving occupational health across our industry.

Trevor Walker, also speaking on behalf of the CBH Board, said:

'The CBH Board of Directors will be approaching the construction industry appealing to their strong sense of corporate social responsibility. Contributing to this project will not only have long-term benefits for the industry as a whole, but will enhance the contributors' reputations as exemplary contractors, employers or suppliers.'

Nick Starling, Head of General Insurance at ABI, said:

'The insurance industry remains committed to encouraging improvements in occupational health. This contribution reflects the importance of the pilot scheme. We hope that other contributions will soon be forthcoming so that the project can quickly progress.'

Funds for the pilot are held and administered by B&CE Charitable Trust (a registered charity), and organisations donating to the project may be eligible for tax relief of up to 30% on their contribution when made through the Trust.
