Build your knowledge

View our available health and safety and technical themed events available across the UK


As a member organisation, The BESA takes an active interest in the building services and wider construction industries, voicing the views of our members and driving for initiatives that represent the best interests of those who work within the built environment.

We gather intelligence through a series of surveys, consultations and meetings to inform our members and help us present a case for, or prepare our responses to changes and new initiatives that could directly affect the future of our industry.



The BESA run a number of topical events throughout the year delivering updates on the latest knowledge available within the building services industry, including Health & Safety, advice on technical issues and complying with industry standards.

Mental Health

The building services sector is predominately a male dominated industry and it is a well-known fact that men find it hard to open up and talk about their feelings.

A definite shift has taken place in the past 12 months in that employers in the sector are starting to talk about mental health, as well as actively seeking resources to better support their employees. 

With mental health issues affecting 1 in 4 adults, it is important that both employers and employees are equipped with knowledge and tools to address this issue in the workplace.

BESA is committed to raising awareness of mental health in the building engineering services sector, providing resources and connecting employers and employees with organisations that can help. We have created a dedicated mental health area where you can find resources to support mental health initiatives in your workplace, as well as links to organisations who are experts in the field.

Taking a positive approach to diversity is a core issue for the BESA, becoming more diverse can help our members overcome skills shortages, gain access to new expertise and meet the diversity requirements increasingly found in more tenders.

We have created a dedicated area on our website to further discuss issues, share best practice, provide resources and host details of industry campaigns and upcoming events relating to all aspects of diversity.
