Constructing Equality Ltd, construction industry equality specialists have become the first Assessment Provider licensed by CITB, the accrediting body and owner of the Be Fair Framework.
Constructing Equality Ltd is licensed to provide assessment and support services UK-wide to construction companies who take on accreditation under Be Fair at Accredited, Bronze, Silver or Gold levels.
The CITB Be Fair Framework is a construction-specific, action plan and learning-based accreditation framework that recognises fair working conditions, employment practices and behaviours across the construction workplace for all.
It has been written by the industry for the industry, to change the industry; in a way that the industry believes will also change the way we look at equality.
Constructing Equality Ltd Managing Director, Chrissi McCarthy, said:
“We are tremendously proud to be the first Be Fair Licensed Provider for CITB; this is a tool we truly believe can make construction not just a fair workplace for everyone, but also a first choice workplace for everyone. Being the first to receive our license is great for us, but it is also the start of helping our industry make real change, as well as become the leading industry on fairness for all”
Constructing Equality Ltd Be Fair Service Manager, Caroline Gee, said:
“It’s been a long journey – preparing to be a Be Fair Licensed Provider has been a lot of hard work. The framework breaks down fairness for companies so that each company knows exactly what is needed, and we have to understand how we can guide, support and assess each very different company on their individual journey. We believe we’ve cracked it, and CITB clearly do too – we really do have the best team.”
