Code of conduct aims to attract women into construction

A code of conduct has been launched that aims to eradicate inappropriate behaviour on construction sites and attract and retain more young people – particularly women – into the industry. Silverstone Park developer MEPC has welcomed the Barnwood Construction Code of Conduct, which has been developed as a response to MEPC’s Women into Construction initiative. This encourages MEPC’s main contractors and professional teams to work together in order to increase the number of women entering the construction industry. MEPC’s Roz Bird, Commercial Director at Silverstone Park, commented: Senior people in construction have admitted to me just how much their industry suffers from an out-of-date bar room culture on sites. This is not the sort of environment that will breed respect for others and must be a key reason why women do not want to join the industry, and why there is such a high suicide rate in general within construction.
