Engaging with risk in construction – an update

CIRIA is currently reviewing its guidance publication, A guide to the systematic management of risk from construction (SP125), following a workshop in November 2011. CIRIA’s Process and Construction panel came together with invited speakers from London Underground, CLM (Olympic Park), Sir Robert McAlpine, the Highways Agency and the Environment Agency to discuss the guidance. It was agreed that the guide, first published in 1996, should be updated to reflect the changes in practice. A scoping study is now underway.
