Britain’s Energy Coast Business Cluster currently has a number of active Sector Groups and there are plans for at more to reflect its growing and changing membership. The BECBC Sector Groups are for members only and provide an invaluable forum for businesses to meet others in their industry, to find out about trends and opportunities and to share information and knowledge with potential partners, clients and suppliers.
Britain’s Energy Coast Business Cluster meetings are held every month and are a great opportunity to meet other members. Other BECBC events include monthly training workshops, the BECBC Business Awards and other networking events, as well as specialist Sector Group meetings.
Business School Engagement Events enable students to gain a better understanding of the world of work as well as meet local employers who are members of the cluster. The Charity Page signposts you to some local organisations.
There will be an opportunity learn more about the Cyber Skills Pipeline across the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) group and the Nuclear Supply Chain, including talks from the NDA, Energus and the North West Regional Organised Crime Unit and a chance to learn more about the NCSC’s Cyber First programme.
Lecture - IMechE West Cumbria Area - Hertel/Altrad introduction to Temporary Works
Lecture aimed at providing an update on the changes in Temporary Works Code of Practice procedure
The British Standards Institution (BSI) has published a draft for public consultation (DPC) of BS 5795:2018, Code of practice for temporary works procedures and the permissible stress design of falsework. When finalised, and published subsequently, it will supersede BS 5975:2008+A1:2011. The DPC is a revision of Sections 1 and 2 only of the existing standard. Section 3, on the permissible stress design of falsework, remains unchanged.
The terms and definitions have been updated to align with the CDM Regulations 2015 (CDM2015). Compliance with the CDM2015 has been incorporated, particularly in respect to the interface between the design of permanent works and the design of temporary works.
