I was interested to read recently an article about women in the construction industry.
According to a survey carried out by CareerStructure.com they found that over half of built environment professionals surveyed, less than 10% of them were female.
The article suggested that the industry would need to introduce a quota to ensure that a certain amount of women become employed in the sector.
According to Buildingtalk “The measure of a quota would also help address the shortfalls in female talent” with shortfalls of 28% in the oil, gas and power sector and 17% in both engineering and building services.

Reading through some construction articles earlier in the week, I came across something about the scrapping of hard hats in the construction industry.
My first reaction was shock and I immediately thought that it was an irresponsible decision on behalf of the HSE to revoke their Construction (Head Protection) Regulations of 1989 from the 6th April 2013.
