The health, safety and wellbeing of the quarrying workforce continues to be the industry’s top priority. It is imperative that professionals are equipped with the knowledge, understanding and practical application of key regulations and standards that affect the sector in order to achieve the ultimate goal of delivering safe practices in the working environment.
The Institute of Quarrying (IQ) is invested in developing the skills and knowledge of professionals working in the quarrying, mineral products and processing sectors, which is why, like many professional organisations, it encourages members to actively participate in continuing professional development (CPD).
The Institute of Quarrying (IQ) has launched a series of improvements to the IQ Connect App and online portal, making it easier for members to record and access their continuing professional development (CPD) activities.
The recent successful IQ and IAT Digital Health & Safety Conference provided the perfect opportunity for the Institute of Quarrying (IQ) to test a new CPD recording facility.
Following the success of the ‘Lifelong Learning Live’ online webinars we released in May, we’re pleased to announce that we’re strengthening our easy-access educational programme and running three more virtual courses throughout September.
The Institute of Quarrying is seeking new volunteers to serve on the Board of Trustees. The successful candidates will join the Institute at an exciting time as it continues to implement the Strategy it launched in 2018.
