ICE members can now join the new ICE health and safety register, which has been relaunched.
The ICE register exists to drive up industry health and safety standards. Membership proves copetence and commitment to health and safety, a key component of CDM 2007 regulations.
It can also help encourage stronger bids, improve protection against legal action and potentially reduce insurance premiums.
The register now has two levels of membership:
- Level 1 - involves document submission only, is straightforward to attain and should be achievable by many newly qualified professionals (IEng, CEng and other similar qualifications). These individuals will be contributing effectively to project teams on health and safety issues, or acting as CDM coordinators on smaller, less complex or lower risk projects.
- Level 2 - is for more experienced people who lead in health and safety on larger, more complex or high/unusual risk projects. An interview is required for membership at this level.
Technical competence in construction (e.g. IEng, CEng or equivalent), health and safety knowledge, experience and responsibility that exceeds the basic minimum technical standards and a successfully completed ICE Health and Safety Assessment will be required to join the ICE health and safety register.
