Groups / Health & Safety


ACE’s Health and Safety forum discusses the ever-changing field in relation to the consulting and engineering community.

Changes can come about through the development of law, governance and practice and the forum ensures that all health and safety issues are communicated to members, major clients, government and key stakeholders.

Some of the topics discussed include: health and safety in design and construction, as well as the implementation of Construction (Design and Management) regulations. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, it has focused on mental health and wellbeing.


Alongside this activity the forum produces in-depth expert guidance for our members to deal with these issues. Much of this output can be found in the Resource Hub on our website.

The forum meets quarterly. Members include representatives of the following ACE member companies and affiliates: AECOM, Amey, Arcadis, Arup, BWB Consulting, Capita, GESL, Hoare Lea, Mott MacDonald, Ramboll UK, Robert West, Tony Gee and WSP.

The chair is Laura Hague of Mott MacDonald.
