Ai Solutions are proud to announce our annual seminar at the Royal Air Force Club Piccadilly, London on 27th April 2006. The guest speaker will be Richard Boland from the Health & Safety Executive. Richard now heads up the Construction Policy team having taken over from Stephen Wright who many of you know through our seminars.
Richard is responsible for the CDM Regulation revisions under consideration this year, so we are particularly delighted that Richard can join us during this busy time. There are many changes under consideration to the CDM Regulations. They affect both the corporate client role and independent planning supervisors represented amongst our users. We are all interested in learning about the latest proposals from the HSE to see how the changes may affect us and our need to comply.
The agenda will include the latest available information on the HSE's proposed revisions to the following regulations; Noise at Work, Fire Orders, Control of Asbestos at Work. Information about the agenda and pricing, including customer discounts, will be available on our web site in due course. Please make sure you are signed up as a member of our web site so that we can keep you informed about this important seminar.
Transport for London are now leading the way in their use of our Enterprise ToolKit™ Compliance software. Recently upgraded, they are now able to offer CDM project collaboration services to both their internal departments and external stewards using one unified collaboration tool; ToolKit CS™. The substantial CDM database supports many hundreds of users and includes internet access.
The way is now open for other London Boroughs, Utilities and Term Contractors to collaborate with TfL in the exchange of CDM project details, documentation, risk and task management and competence reporting. This can be achieved around the clock where and when required. ToolKit CS™ is a very powerful tool developed over the past 12 years. The interest created by the TfL upgrade is substantial and we look forward to both servicing the ongoing requests of our customers and reporting back accordingly.
Our upgrade offer for CDM ToolKit™ 2000 users will have to change at the end of March 2006. We are encouraging 2000 users to upgrade so that they can remain compliant as the CDM regulations change. The cost for customers with less than 5 concurrent user licenses is minimal if carried out by the end of March 2006.
Callsafe Services report that the HSC has decided that the revised CDM Regulations will be supported by an ACoP and sector specified guidance. The move follows lobbying from the construction industry arguing that it provides organisations with an essential benchmark.
We are grateful to Callsafe for their latest update on the proposed revisions to the CDM Regulations available from the Community section of our website.
