Employers working within the built environment, including construction, developers, and contractors, are invited to an Air Quality breakfast briefing. Lawrence Waterman OBE will represent the British Safety Council and experts from Kings College London, Hubbub, British Safety Council and UKGBC will be speaking.

What's happening?

Over the last decade air pollution has become a key issue, with mounting evidence showing the negative impact on health. The built environment’s contribution to poor air quality in cities is not well understood. Two of the most significant of these are the contribution from construction and operation of buildings.

Main objectives

  • Gain a deeper understanding of the issue and implications on health
  • Hear findings from ground-breaking new air quality monitoring with Kings College London, revealing when Londoner’s are most exposed to poor air quality, including outdoor workers
  • Explore how data is being used to protect workers and inform operational decision e.g. The British Safety Council app ‘Canairy
  • Hear insights from UKGBC into the global campaign Air Quality in the Built Environment
  • Explore the role of powerful cross-sector partnerships in addressing a pressing environmental challenge.

Who should attend?

This event is open to a select group of companies interested in exploring the sector's role in accelerating action on poor air quality.
