The ICE has published a new life-long learning health and safety risk management guide to help members maintain professional standards throughout their careers.
The ICE recognises the need to include the effective management of health and safety risk within undergraduate and graduate programmes. This has been well established at both stages and forms part of the qualification process.
But it wants to improve explanation of the continuing need for skills, knowledge and experience in this field, post qualification, and over an entire life-long career path.
The new guide aims ensure that members keep up to date with relevant health and safety continuous professional development requirements.
It is intended to help members decide whether they need to be updated through formal training, webinars, reading, or by other means.
The document sets out, for the first time, the minimum requirement to satisfy CPD needs. It applies to “technical” and “managerial” engineers.
It is available on the panel page of the ICE website.
