Blue Roofs Guidance

NFRC technical guidance note for the construction and design of Blue Roofs. Roofs and podiums with controlled temporary water attenuation.


Breathe Freely

Breathe Freely is a BOHS initiative, aimed at reducing occupational lung disease in the UK, which causes significant debilitating ill-health and an estimated 13,000 deaths per year. Breathe Freely is about raising awareness both of the problem and how to do something about it: we can protect workers’ health and prevent most of these diseases and deaths. It is not just “the right thing to do”, it is good for business as well. And broad acceptance of this is part of the solution.

Driving for Better Business

NFRC is pleased to be partnering with National Highways and their Driving for Better Business (DfBB) programme, to recognise the importance of managing work-related road risk effectively in business.

The DfBB programme helps employers in both the private and public sectors reduce work-related road risk, control the associated costs, and improve compliance with current legislation and guidance. The programme is free to access and contains useful online tools and resources to help organisations evaluate practices, strengthen culture, enhance performance and demonstrate leadership in the management of work-related road risk throughout their workforce.



Health in Construction Leadership Group

The HCLG, which NFRC is a member, aim is to unite the construction industry to eradicate the ill health and disease caused by exposures to health hazards on building sites.


Mates In Mind

Right now, one in six workers in the UK is experiencing depression, anxiety or stress, in the construction industry it suggests 350,000 people are suffering at any one time. Life in construction offers jobs and careers full of energy with a unique mix of diversity, skills sets, opportunity and life experience. It offers workers across the UK a chance to change the face of the world we live in, both for themselves and for others. Because of this every single person in Construction deserves the chance of positive mental health.

NFRC is supporting the campaign and it is their intention to train members of staff to become mental health champions.


No Time to Lose

IOSH's No Time to Lose campaign aims to get carcinogenic exposure issues more widely understood and help businesses take action. NFRC has pledged to support and to promote the campaign throughout our membership and the roofing sector to raise awareness of the occupational health risks attributed to working in the construction industry.
