Abstract This project was undertaken to respond to a concern that safety and health bureaucratic procedures were not suited to small enterprises in the construction sector in the United Kingdom, since they often lacked organizational structures and managerial competence to deal with these issues. The setting-up of a "Safety Schemes in Procurement Competence Forum" (SSIP-C Forum) is proposed, together with a description of how it might operate.
