CPD evening in Manchester

28th Sep 2018

A huge joint-CPD event is taking place in Manchester this autumn at the Museum of Science and Industry.

Members will get a chance to explore this fantastic venue, located on the site of the old Liverpool Road Station, which celebrated its 30-year anniversary in 2013, before enjoying an evening of technical lectures, all of which are CPD-approved. The meeting will take place on Thursday 8 November.

Before the CPD lectures begin, members will get the opportunity to ask our experts about Engineering Council registration in our ‘Registration Surgery’ sessions. These drop-in sessions will take place in the afternoon for an hour, giving members a chance to discuss registration queries face-to-face with our guides.

The first of the evening will be delivered by Daniel Hayes from LowCPV. His lecture entitled ‘Road to zero: current and future emissions reduction strategies in the UK’ will be a comprehensive look at how the industry is managing the emissions legislation now and in the future, and what impact that will have on the road transport sector.

Chair of IPlantE Alan Fitzpatrick is the second speaker. His lecture, called ‘How safe is your building’ Alan will cover legislation in respect of DSEAR (The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmospheres Regulations, 2002), and some client’s inability to comply. It will also address the lack of understanding about building materials and hazards, to stop fire spreading, and the role of insurance firms in assessing fire resistance.

To finish off the CPD evening will be Tony Robinson with his presentation ‘Quality like a Brazilian - the simple customer focused application of quality management tools’.
