The BIOZ plan is one of the effects of this cooperation. Meetings of the Agreement's Steering Committees gather presidents of the associated construction companies. In 2018, they dealt, among others, with fatal accidents, which took place in the last year. According to the Central Statistical Office data, the construction sector is on the 8th place among the industries in which accidents at work occur, although year by year their number is decreasing, there is still much to be done in this area.
As the signatory of the Agreement, we engage in many initiatives, for example we support two "small" Agreements at Regional Labour Inspectorates in Szczecin and Białystok, where smaller construction companies are associated. In addition, we take part in initiatives where the law and new standards of health and safety protection are created. In 2018, the director of the OHS, Fire and Environmental Protection was appointed to the Occupational Health and Safety Team of the "BUDOWLANI" Trade Union – an opinion-forming and advisory body. As the project leader on behalf of the Agreement, we participated in works on the new regulation on occupational safety at transport with use of tower cranes. In this respect, we worked closely with the Tower Crane Operators Association and with the Budowlani Trade Union. As a result, the regulation was amended according to our proposals. As the signatory of the Agreement, we also participated in works on the description of qualifications in the construction industry, including those concerning employees performing particularly hazardous works, team coordinators and occupational safety management advisers.
