This month members CPD offer will be focusing on Health & Safety. Members will now be able to accesses 2 in-depth modules that will assist them with the prevention of hazard and risk while working.

Please note that all CPD programmes can be accessed on the Learning HUB through the MyICE dashboard/My Learning.

Office Health Safety

According to a recent survey, 90% of employees believe that a healthy workplace is essential to their work-life balance, yet 53% stated that their health has been impaired by working in an office. In this course, we’ll explore the hazards posed by the office environment, how they can be overcome and the importance of adopting a movement mindset to your overall wellbeing.

Remote Health Safety

Flexible working can be the key to a positive work life balance, with many employees choosing to work remotely in order to cut down on commute times and travel costs, but with this new way of working, how do employees and employers ensure health and safety standards are maintained? In this module, we’ll explore the definition of remote working, identify who’s responsible for the health and safety of remote workers as well as ways to reduce the risk of hazards.

Members will also be able to access a series of up to date condensed 15 minute modules to help assist them with the implementation of Health and safety in the work place highlighting responsibilities that should be taken both by the employer and the employee.

Additional ICE Learning Hub Programmes: Sustainable Engineering

After having celebrated World Engineering Day for sustainable Development last week the Infrastructure Learning Hub invites members to make their contribution towards Sustainable engineering.

From guiding members through the Sustainable Development Goals to working with Architects on developing innovative designs, this series of CPD modules will examine how engineers can make a meaningful contribution to achieving the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.

Engineering and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals

This programme looks at the Sustainable Development Goals and recognises that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and addresses a range of social needs including education, health, social protection, and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and environmental protection. Engineering has a huge role to play in ensuring the success of the SDGs, and this learning programme examines what the SDGs entail, and how engineers can make a meaningful contribution to their achievement.

Architectural and engineering methods for sustainable development

This programme is aimed at all members who are working with architects. Members will be able to access all the latest methods, tools and business models and other professional skills architects and engineers are already using to meet the challenges of sustainable development.

Engineering Sustainability related modules include:

  1. The drivers of sustainable development and the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal
