Re: Preventing Public Access to Workplace Yards etc

To be honest it doesn't really bother me just now, in the year we've been on this site I've never seen anyone use it. We are looking at putting in an alternative route that goes round behind one of the buildings, avoiding the yard completely. My thinking is that people will naturally follow the pat...

Re: Accident, Incident etc Spreadsheet

I think you pretty much have to create your own to suite your needs as every site and industry is different. It also depends on what you want to achieve from the data. There are so many variables I don't think you could really make a template, except a very basic one you would have to heavily modify...

Re: Carbon Fibre dust/fillaments

Just off on a tangent... Many moons ago, before I knew anything about health and safety (how many jobs did you do when no one ever showed you a risk assessment or safe system of work) I was asked to move some perspect sheets from a warehouse which were covered in perspex dust. I did this with NO PPE...

Re: Minimum distance for a tool shed in a school

There is something in regards to planning permission in wales. An outbuilding cannot be any closer to a highway than the side of the house, or 5m, which ever is nearest. However, it doesnt appear to say the same in England, instead it says no Out building forward of a wall forming the principal elev...

Re: National Speed Awareness Course: impact evaluation

If the government were serious about catching speeders they could force all new cars to come with GPS operated cruise control and they could force all speeding offenders to have black boxes fitted where they have to send the data to the police. But just think of all the income they would lose if the...

Re: Access and Egress issue - Who is responsible ?

Correct, an RA wasn't present. In the Contract agreement , the Investment over a certain theshold (or replacement) had to be authorised by the building owner. The F management company notified the building owner of the area (needing a lot of investment). The building owner decided not to spend the ...

Re: Policy Wording - Employee Vs Colleague??

Change it. It won't matter. I used to work for one of the biggest companies in the UK with over 100 sites. They were SJW snowflakes as well and called their employees colleagues and it appeared in everything from employment contracts to health and safety policies, and if you didn't call them colleag...

Re: Employment Advice

Your best bet is to give ACAS a call. The very basics are: Unless it says otherwise in your contract they cannot cut your hours or your rate of pay without your consent. If they do so then they are both in breach of contract and of making unlawful deduction of wages. Also, if they go ahead and do th...
