Empowering Construction Workers by Tackling Male Incontinence with phs

In the physically demanding and often hazardous environment of construction, male incontinence provisions is of great importance for many reasons. It addresses a critical aspect of worker health and safety, ensuring that those dealing with incontinence can do so with dignity. Supporting Dispose with Dignity is not only about physical well-being but also about mental health, as it can significantly reduce the stress and anxiety associated with managing incontinence in a challenging work setting. 

1 in 25 men aged over 40 will experience some form of urinary leakage every year in the UK. *

By providing male incontinence provisions, construction organisations demonstrate a commitment to an inclusive and supportive workplace culture. This inclusivity can enhance worker satisfaction and loyalty, reduce absenteeism, and improve overall productivity. In an industry where discussing men's health issues is often stigmatised, adopting this method is an excellent strategy to create and nurture safe spaces. It encourages open conversations about male incontinence without shame. The more openly we discuss it, the more normalised it becomes. 

Raising standards and building trust with Considerate Constructors Scheme

The Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) has been instrumental in setting industry standards for the construction sector, focusing on improving the work environment and ensuring inclusivity and support for all workers. In collaboration with Prostate Cancer UK, we at phs have engaged with CCS to update the Checklist and Self-Assessment regulations, making sure they stay relevant and continue to offer constructive challenges to the industry.  

Working together to lead the way in raising standards across the construction industry and help improve its culture surrounding stigmatised topics, as of the 1st of January 2024, there‚Äôs new guidance surrounding the disposal of sanitary products (this includes male incontinence products) in both female and male washrooms. Growing awareness of male incontinence has meant that sanitary/male incontinence bins for men are now appearing in many public and workplace settings.
