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, you will be able to print a CPD certificate 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.
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.
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.
The management of asbestos is covered by Regulation 4 of the Control of Asbestos Regulations 2012. Regulation 4 is he ‘Duty to manage asbestos in non-domestic premises’ and states that asbestos should be identified, its condition checked, the risk from each asbestos containing material (ACM) assessed and a management plan created. So what does this look like?
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.
