DHF Joins Construction Industry Coronavirus Forum

UK trade association for the locks and building hardware industry DHF has become a member of The Construction Industry Coronavirus (CICV) Forum.

The forum which recently launched a new Consultants sub-group made up of representatives from leading industry bodies Atelier Ten, Currie & Brown, David Narro Associates, Gardiner & Theobald, Hardies, JM Architects, Keppie Design, PagePark, Reiach & Hall, Turner & Townsend, Will Rudd Davidson and Woolgar Hunter.

Since its creation in mid-March, the organisation has been at the vanguard of the battle to save the construction sector in Scotland, distributing information and becoming the first port of call for clarity of advice.

Its latest initiatives include the release of an animation about returning to work safely and a free downloadable restart pack containing posters, checklists and fact sheets advising how to manage the restart while keeping staff safe.

The forum also recently provided health and safety underpinning guidance, furloughing information for employers, a consultation about the future of the industry in Scotland and vital advice for apprentices and staff preparing to return to college.

Forum Chair and SELECT managing director, Alan Wilson, says: “We are delighted to welcome both DHF as our latest full member and the 12 bodies who make up the new Consultants sub-group.

“Now that restart is under way in earnest, cooperation and collaboration is more vital than ever, so we appreciate the knowledge and expertise that these new Forum contributors bring.

“Each new member brings new strengths and we greatly appreciate the knowledge and insight we know they will deliver as part of our ongoing efforts.”

Patricia Sowsbery-Stevens, Head of Commercial Operations at DHF, adds: “The Forum gives the industry an invaluable opportunity to discuss the issues we all face and decide how restart can be managed safely for both contractors and consumers.

“We are proud to contribute our voice to and help make our contribution to a remarkable joint initiative that has already made such a positive mark on the construction sector.”
