A new workshop dealing with the issue of modern slavery in construction has been created as part of the CIOB initiative with Stronger Together.

The specialist, in-depth industry programme supporting construction companies in tackling modern slavery was launched in October 2017. It is developed by Stronger Together – a business-led multi-stakeholder initiative aiming to reduce modern slavery by providing guidance, free resources and a network for employers, suppliers, subcontractors and labour providers – in partnership with the CIOB and sponsors Multiplex, Saint-Gobain, Westfield and Willmott Dixon.

The one-day, interactive workshop entitled Tackling Modern Slavery in the Construction Sector offers participants an overall understanding of how modern slavery occurs within the construction industry; the risks and impacts to their business and UK supply chains (including subcontractors and labour providers); understanding the responsibilities and best practice associated with tackling it.

Participants will leave confident in their next steps to deter, detect and deal with modern slavery and with the tools they need to share and implement what they’ve learnt.

Candidates receive free resources to inform and equip them with pragmatic advice: a toolkit, flyers and posters for workers.
