About Us 

The Midland Construction Safety Association was formed in December 1966 at the instigation of Mr W Brittain-Jones, H.M. District Inspector of Factories.  As it was known in those days “The North Midlands Safety Supervisors Circle” was borne.  

The Factory Inspectorate realised that it would be advantageous if those newly appointed safety officers in the construction industry could meet informally with their local Inspectors to discuss common issues.  This move was welcomed by the industry representatives and the forum has continued to flourish over the years.

The MCSA is affiliated to SGUK and is one of the few safety forums that focuses on the construction industry.  We continue to have close links with local HSE construction inspectors who attend on a regular basis. 

The Association is non-profit making and levies a small annual subscription charge (currently £40 per member) to cover operational costs.  Any surplus money accrued is donated to charity. In 2004 £1000 was donated to the Midlands Air Ambulance Service and in 2011 a gift of £1000 was shared by Macmillan Cancer Support and the Derby Stroke Group.

Meetings are held on alternate months with each meeting commencing at 10.00a.m. and concluding at lunchtime.  The venue is Lumb Farm Country Club, Ripley, Derbyshire which is close to the A38, has ample parking facilities, and serves excellent value lunchtime meals. 

Our current membership list is in excess of 80 members and comprises an assortment of representatives of contractors, county and district councils and independent safety consultants.   Meetings are informal and members find the gathering an ideal opportunity to share problems and seek help and guidance from colleagues.

At each meeting we aim to have at least one guest speaker introducing a topical subject. Our programme may be viewed on the next page.

Members may bring along guests free of charge.
