Workplace CPD Modules
The CPD (Continual Professional Development) modules are written by our in-house experts, from an independent view point and supply valuable information to company directors, duty holders, and all those responsible for reviewing their knowledge for a safe, healthy and sustainable working environment.
To take these CPD modules please register your details - it only takes a few simple steps and once you are registered you can go on and complete more CPD modules.
Please read the technical article and then click through to a multiple-choice questionnaire, there are between seven - ten questions on the CPD tests that should take you less than 10 minutes to complete.
When you have completed the questions you will receive your results immediately. If you answer the questions correctly, a CPD certificate will be emailed to you to print for your CPD records.
The certificate you receive is not a statement of your competence as the CPD modules are not training sessions. The CPD modules have been designed to give you a basic overview of a particular aspect of health and safety, so that you can review your current knowledge on the different topics.
As a facilities or health and safety professional, has anybody within your workplace mentioned that they thought that their workplace was making them ill? If so this CPD will help you to explain a few workplace myths and will provide you with some answers regarding your workplace and your responsibilities.
April 2014 saw the 10th anniversary of the implementation of Regulation 4 “Duty to manage asbestos in non domestic premises” which was previously Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations 2002. Since then and through various changes the Regulations have become The Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012, but within that Regulation 4 has remained unchanged. The intervening decade has also seen numerous asbestos surveys (they changed too) and other exercises carried out to identify to what extent properties contained asbestos and if so how it should be managed. So what has the last 10 years taught us and what is your understanding of the requirements?
The latest in our regular series of CPD modules looks at Control of Contractors, what your responsibilities are and sensible steps to take to manage risk appropriately. Organisations are increasingly concentrating on the fundamentals of their business, which means they are outsourcing other activities to contractors. Such action does have economic benefits to organisations, however it can also lead to misunderstandings in areas such as responsibility and quality. Although organisations can outsource work they cannot outsource the ‘responsibility for management of health and safety in their workplace.
The latest in our regular series of CPD modules looks at the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order (RRFSO) 2005 regulations, and how they impact facilities management.
