IHE unveils new online workshops for winter services

20/11/2020

The Institute of Highway Engineers (IHE) has announced a series of short online workshops to teach the basic components of winter service delivery.

The course will cover the main components needed to operate winter services for a local authority or roads organisation and will provide applicants with six CPD hours.

'It is intended for those who have general responsibility for winter services but not on a day to day basis and as an introduction for those who are undertaking winter services as new responsibility,' the IHE said.

There will also be time in each session for Q and A and a set of course notes will be supplied.

The news comes after the IHE became an official partner of the National Winter Service Research Group with a secretarial and administrative support role. 

Programme Outline

The course takes place over two days on 8 December and 15 December, covering a series of 45-minute sessions.

Part one

  • Session one – the legal background
  • Session two – the required paperwork
  • Session three – plant and equipment
  • Session four – workforce planning

Part two

  • Session one – meteorology for beginners
  • Session two – making the right decision
  • Session three – communication issues
  • Session four – severe weather
