Spring CPD session: Dust

There is still time to catch the spring CPD event focusing on dust. The next date is Monday 17 June 2024.

Reducing Harms Caused by Dusts is a CPD certified session that looks at occupational diseases in the construction industry related to different types of dusts. 

The seminar will explore the wide range of dusts and their adverse effects on people, and how the effects might be different if the substances are present in different forms. 

It will touch on the other effects that dusts might have, for example the creation of explosive atmospheres and environmental harms.
