ICE is committed to be at the forefront of knowledge transfer on health and safety issues and to help safeguard the well-being of people in our profession.
In recent years, clients, contractors and the supply chain have started working much closer together and for greater periods of time, changing the dynamics of project teams and adding a layer of complexity to health and safety procedures.
Combined with increased fines from HSE to senior individuals in organisations, it has become even more critical for everyone involved in construction, regardless if situated on or off-site, to have a thorough understanding of how to minimise risk of accidents, which may lead to death or injury and be followed by unavoidable legal ramifications.
ICE's Health and Safety Day aims to provide invaluable insight on procedures governed both by the Health and Safety at Work Act and the updated CDM Regulations of 2015.
On 16 April 2018, a mock trial event and a half-day workshop, held at One Great George Street in London, will engage more than 250 delegates, providing an excellent platform to understand the real-life implications of accidents and examine how these can be avoided.
09:00 - 13:00 | Mock Trial: People - Plant Interface
Cost: £45 for members / £55 for non-members
Sit as a "juror" in the mock trial of ORR v Joseph Locke in a prosecution under Section 7 Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.
You will hear how it is alleged that Mr Locke failed to comply with the duty to take "reasonable care" for his own health and safety and the health and safety of those who may be affected by his acts or omissions at work.
The trial will focus on issues relating to compliance with company procedures, safe working practices and the influence of fellow workers. As a jury member, you will need to decide whether or not Mr Locke took "reasonable care".
14:30 - 17:30 | Workshop: Effective project management under CDM 2015
Cost: £75 for members / £95 for non-members
Delegates attending this interactive workshop on effective project management will:
- Understand the principles of CDM in relation to accident, including health and safety in design and how this affects work during construction, use, maintenance and eventual demolition
- Be clear on the links between CDM and current UK health and safety legislation (including risk assessment and the general principles of prevention)
- Recognise the links between CDM and accepted project management principles
- Understand the importance of collaborative working and how this is critical in minimising the risk of accident
