Culture in Construction is an initiative of the Construction Industry Culture Taskforce. It focuses on improving the culture of the construction industry.

Since August 2018, we’ve been working to develop a new Culture Standard which will lift the productivity and performance of construction and address the major issues holding back our industry – excessive work hours and fatigue, poor mental health, and failure to attract a diverse workforce.

Public consultation on the draft Culture Standard commenced on 20 October. To participate in the consultation visit the Culture in Construction website.

Once the Culture Standard is finalised, governments will be called upon to incorporate compliance with the Culture Standard into their standard procurement requirements.

The Taskforce works alongside the Construction Industry Leadership Forum, a joint forum of leaders from industry and the Victorian and NSW public sectors. CILF aims to drive improved collaboration and action around procurement and delivery of major government infrastructure projects, including by addressing capability and capacity constraints.
