Following industry endorsement for our vision for occupational health in construction, B&CE are pleased to announce the secondment of Margaret Grahamslaw as the new Head of Occupational Health and Wellbeing in our Construction Services division. Central to her role will be supporting us in developing an occupational health solution to improve the health of construction workers.

Margaret joins B&CE from Balfour Beatty, where she is responsible for guiding and managing occupational health services across the UK. She will maintain her role at Balfour Beatty throughout the nine month secondment, allocating her time between the two organisations.

A Registered Nurse and a Chartered Member of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), Margaret has been an occupational health professional for 19 years. She has an MSc in Occupational Health, Safety and Environment from the University of Birmingham and a BSc (Hons) in Management and Technology from the Open University.

Patrick Heath-Lay, Chief Executive Officer of B&CE, said:

“Margaret will play a vital role as we work to realise our vision of creating an occupational health model for the construction industry. Her technical expertise will be invaluable in helping us define a model that addresses the risks in an inherently risky industry. I am delighted to welcome Margaret to the team.”

Margaret Grahamslaw, Head of Occupational Health and Wellbeing at B&CE, said:

“B&CE’s vision for occupational health in construction is an exciting concept that will make such a difference to how health is managed in the industry. I look forward to working with the team and continuing to engage with the industry as we move health up the agenda.”

Originally from Sunderland, Margaret now lives in the Midlands, and has three adult children. Passionate about health and fitness, she swims outdoors (all year round) and has run the London Marathon seven times. This year, her target is a 10km swim in Loch Lomond.

Notes to editors

B&CE is a not-for-profit organisation – we operate for the benefit of our members and their dependants. We were founded in the construction industry back in 1942. Now we offer a workplace pension, employee accident cover and employee life cover. We currently manage assets of over £3 billion for over 4 million members (as of 30 September 2016).

B&CE’s Charitable Trust was set up in 1991 to give back to the community. To date, it has given out about £3 million, providing financial help for people in need.

B&CE acquired Constructing Better Health (CBH) from the Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) in April 2016. The boards of B&CE and CSCS shared the belief that more needed to be done to align the needs of the construction sector with an improved occupational health model.
