“Key takeaways from the #MSA4Construction2018: 1/MSA raised awareness but change has not percolated across majority; 2/risk assessment is becoming a tick box exercise similar to audits; 3/Skills shortages after Brexit will provide conditions for more #ModernSlavery.” Dr Gabriela Gutierrez-Huerto, King’s Business School, London
