What are we working on?

The Panel has a long history in trying to improve the understanding of the obligation on designers to 'eliminate or mitigate risk'. In this vein it has now produced the first two, of what is hoped to be a series of designer guidance notes, on Roofwork and Paving Slabs, to guide designers towards a compliant solution.

The requirements on aspiring members with regard to training and knowledge acquisition are well documented. However thereafter, apart from the general requirement for CPD, the requisite knowledge in occupational safety and health risk management is not so well laid out. Members are encouraged to read, and adopt, the 'Life-Long Learning' guide produced by IIG which outlines recommended knowledge acquisition over a notional career life-span.

The panel is also working with ICE Northern Ireland on Data Saves Lives webinar planned for 28 April 2017 in support of ILO World Day for Safety & Health at Work.
