At RVT, we believe it is essential for workers to fully understand occupational health hazards in order to keep themselves and others safe. Therefore, we work to provide free, up to date educational resources that can be put into practice on site. Following our successful series of online Toolbox Talks in 2020, RVT are now running our fully approved CPD UK sessions for all those who wish to join.
CPD stands for Continued Professional Development, and our course has been fully approved by the nationally recognised training provider CPD UK. Taking part in CPD training ensures that your current qualifications are kept fresh and up to date and allows you to learn new skills and develop your existing ones regardless of occupation, age or education level.
The objective of our presentations is to give any worker within the construction industry a clear introduction into the dangers of certain site hazards. We explain how these hazards can be safely and effectively controlled to keep those on and around site safe. All sessions will include 45 minutes of teaching with a 15 minute Q&A session, and count as 1 hour toward your continued professional development training. All attendees will receive a CPD certificate upon completion of each session. Also, all sessions in our CPD programme will be presented by our technical expert Kevin Dupont, who recently presented at our successful Action on Respiratory Health Summit, which drew an audience of over 300 industry professionals. Full details and registration links can be found below.
A Guide to Effective Dust Control (course number A015449), 12pm on 6th April
Drawing on shocking HSE statistics, this course highlights the devastating effects that poor dust control can have on your long-term health. Kevin will introduce Capture, Contain, Control (The 3Cs®), a proven methodology, devised by RVT Group, to ensure effective control of the majority of on-site health hazards. Kevin will examine the key principles of this methodology and how it can be applied specifically to dust control. This will then be followed by examples of the types of dust control equipment available, and how they can be utilised with real case study examples.
