Respect for People Work in Occupied Premises Toolkit

Published 22nd October 2004 by Constructing Excellence

This toolkit is useful anywhere that construction activity is taking place when residents are in occupation, although it was produced particularly with the housing, school and office refurbishment in mind.

Working where residents remain in occupation brings its own concerns and potential rewards. It can be the ‘shop window’ for the construction industry to show what it can do and how well its people are treated. Poor conditions and lack of consideration for the occupants, including bad behaviour or appearance, will reinforce negative stereotypes.

This toolkit covers specific areas that are ADDITIONAL to the other toolkits in the Respect for People suite. You will also find the following complementary toolkits especially helpful when working in occupied premises – Health and Safety, Working Environment and Training Plan.
