The ICE health and safety board has admitted its first candidates onto its health and safety register. Roger Ball, Mike Battman, Christopher Fitt and Graeme Walker have all successfully completed the assessment procedure. The register has been produced to benchmark a higher level of health and safety awareness for construction professionals. It is open to all professionally qualified members of the construction industry with at least 10 years experience. For further information email health&safety@ice. org. uk.
The ICE has published a special issue of its Civil Engineering journal to record the development of the ú5.2bn Channel Tunnel Rail Link and the lessons it offers civil engineers. The project suffered one of the most protracted gestation periods of any major civil engineering scheme but is generally recognised as establishing planning, funding and management models for future projects worldwide.
Channel Tunnel Rail Link - Planning and People costs ú30.
ICE members can get both 2003 special issues (the second will be on the design and construction of CTRL section one) for ú8. Tel (020) 7665 2227 or email subs@ice. org. uk.
The ICE is looking for papers for a special edition of its Municipal Engineer journal planned for June 2004 on Leisure - realising the dream.
It will explore recent developments, government policy, the relationship with health, demand for the use of scarce resources, and impact on the environment. Papers are invited from professionals engaged in the research, provision or management of leisure in all its forms. For further information email Kathleen. hollow@ice. org. uk.
