The piling podcasts are the initiative of new FPS chair Steve Hadley following his guest appearance on Re:Construction, the Construction Index podcast, earlier this month.

Planned for launch in May 2020, the podcasts will be directed primarily at those working in the piling and geotechnical industry, although may be of interest to the sector’s clients, consultants and regulatory bodies as appropriate.

Webinars will take a more educational approach to topics, with live discussions on topics such as harm reduction, occupational health and learning & development.

Steve Hadley said: “Like all of us, we take our information from many different sources, but also in many different formats. Including podcasts and webinars into the federation’s communications mix will help the FPS further extend its reach, as well as providing timely information, advice and guidance to members and stakeholders in a format that may be more convenient and accessible to them.”

Meanwhile, this week's edition of Re:Construction is now available and, as a rare treat, is totally Covid-free for a change. It is available from all the usual podcast sources (Apple, Google, Spotify, Deezer)
