LCE Design Risk

As per the HSA (Health and Safety Authority) guidelines “The duties of Designers are in addition to those under Section 16 of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act, 2005 which requires designers to ensure that the project is capable to being constructed to be safe, can be maintained safely and complies with all relevant health and safety legislation.”

Designers must:

  • Identify any hazards that their design may present during construction and subsequent maintenance;
  • Where possible, eliminate the hazards or reduce the risk e.g. can roof-mounted equipment be placed at ground level or can guardrails be provided to protect workers from falling?
  • Communicate necessary control measures, design assumptions or remaining risks to the PSDP so they can be dealt with in the safety and health plan;
  • Co-operate with other designers, PSDP and PSCS;
  • Take account of any existing safety and health plan or safety file;
  • Comply with directions issued by the PSDP or PSCS;
  • Where no PSDP has been appointed, inform the client that a PSDP must be appointed.

Waterford Technologies siscin dashWaterford Technologies, experts and leaders in email and file archiving, today announced the worldwide launch of SISCIN Local Storage, enabling clients to take advantage of Cloud power and scalability without any risk of their data being exposed to the Cloud.

SISCIN Local Storage enables analysis, management and reporting on server storage. Harnessing the scalability and flexibility of Cloud analysis, the client data remains on the Local network at all times, making it ideal for Cloud risk-averse organizations.

Waterford Technologies CEO, John Brennan said, "We are proud to address the popular demand for Local Storage with the powerful analysis of Cloud, ensuring that all our clients have equal opportunity to benefit from SISCIN’s insight without risk. With unstructured data continuing exponential growth and hard-hitting legislation such as GDPR coming fast down the tracks, we are delighted to enable clients to implement insight and best practice Data Management and our experts are here to guide them every step on the way."

Utilising a unified dashboard view, SISCIN Local Storage allows Data Managers to simply view the server estate, identify useful data, delete or move redundant or seldom used data assets to cheaper archive and manage the drilled down reporting process.

Freedom and Empowerment for Data Managers

"SISCIN Local Storage empowers our clients who have had all the common problems with storage growth, associated cost and IT resourcing which would naturally drive most to seek a Cloud solution. However; for some organizations, due to internal policies and risk aversion in terms of Cloud adoption, not to mention Data retention and fear of legislative changes, an inertia develops which does not allow best Data Management practice. SISCIN Local Storage will give Data Managers the freedom, confidence and clarity of vision they need to make important Data driven decisions based on fact without any Cloud risk," said Lorcan Kennedy, CTO, Waterford Technologies.

UPMC Whitfield CelticsThe Pittsburgh Celtics gaelic football squad has been touring Ireland for the past week playing matches and soaking up the atmosphere in the build up to the All Ireland Final. This tour was co-sponsored by UPMC International in recognition of the club’s success in the U.S.

UPMC International is part of the world-renowned healthcare system that operates the UPMC Whitfield Cancer Centre in Waterford. UPMC Whitfield offers the most advanced radiation therapy, including intensity-modulated radiation therapy and image-guided radiation therapy to residents of the south east of Ireland. 

Celebrating their third midwest U.S. championship since 2010, members of the Pittsburgh Celtics  presented Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) President Aogán Ó Fearghaíl with a team jersey at Croke Park on Friday September 15th. The Celtics are part of the Pittsburgh GAA under a mission to further the development of Gaelic culture in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. They were joined by David Beirne, Ireland country manager for UPMC International.

Along with Bon Secours and the GAA, the UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program will return to Croke Park on October 7th for “Make the Call,” an educational conference on concussion treatment and management for sports officials and athletic trainers.

The symposium will feature leading concussion experts from UPMC and Bon Secours sharing the best practices, protocols and treatment of concussion. The event will also feature a panel discussion involving Dr. Pat O’Neill (All-Ireland winning former manager and player with Dublin), Dr. Brendan Murphy (former Offaly hurler, current Tipperary hurling team doctor) and Oisín McConville (former Armagh footballer and All-Star winner) sharing their own experiences with concussion.

The UPMC Sports Medicine Concussion Program is a global leader in testing, treating and researching sports-related concussions. With over 17,000 patient visits each year, more than 30 staff members treat high school, college and professional athletes from across the United States. UPMC’s program is a leading source for concussion research, with nearly 200 peer-reviewed concussion research studies. Centres throughout the United States have adopted the UPMC program's standard of concussion care.

This mirrors the global high standard of patient care which UPMC brings to its Whitfield Cancer Centre in the south east of Ireland.

UPMC International works in more than a dozen countries worldwide, offering a wide variety of services, including hospital management, implementation of electronic medical records, physician and staff training, and facility and equipment planning. As a leader in such specialties as organ transplantation, cancer, sports medicine, neurosurgery and emergency medicine, UPMC helps partners around the world provide high-quality, personalized care to patients in their own communities.
