A UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY FOR DSE ASSESSORS
We are working on an exciting one-day event that will take place on 21.06.22 at the fabulous five-storey Orangebox showroom in Clerkenwell, London. Aimed at established DSE Assessors, the morning will explore existing experience, such as the demands of virtual assessments, domestic fire regulations and keeping abreast of the latest products. The afternoon will look at how you can widen your influence and involvement in the broader wellbeing discussion with clients. The event is completely free and includes refreshments and lunch. You just need to bring an open mind (we plan to challenge some of your thinking!). A CPD certificate will be provided. Spaces are limited so register here (without obligation) to be kept informed of developments and ensure a place when booking opens.
HOMEWORKING DONE RIGHT – 3 FREE WEBINARS
Our Training Manager, Stuart Entwistle, has been working on a 3-part series of free webinars, based on our experience of both employer and employee responses to homeworking since the start of the pandemic. The three topics covered are 1) the Employer’s Duty of Care, 2) Homeworking Products and 3) Posture Tips for Home & Office. Find out more and register here.
WORLD FM DAY
Today is World FM Day, an opportunity to recognise the crucial work of Facilities Managers across the globe and remember that they are responsible for so much more than making sure the lights are on and the toilets aren’t blocked! As we address Hybrid Working and Sustainability, FMs are central to the management of where and how people work, whilst minimising impact in the move to Net Zero.
RULA – RAPID UPPER LIMB ASSESSMENT
As we continue to expand our 2022 Knowledge Sharing (more Top Tips videos here), it is worth remembering that there are many free resources we have been offering for years. One of the most established is RULA, the internationally recognised Rapid Upper Limb Assessment tool which helps to quantify and prioritise risks. This was refreshed three years ago and provides a much cleaner graphical interface.
IN THE PRESS (AGAIN!)
As mentioned last month, we have been broadening our publication reach beyond blogs and social media and our articles are appearing in a number of general and specialist publications. Once upon a time these would have been newspapers and magazines but now, of course, they are mostly online. Here is a piece in Facilities Management Journal. We have four more items appearing in the next month.
