Re: Getting a start in HSE.... (ideally back offshore)

DB7 I know it's not what you want to hear but the chances of obtaining even an entry level position offshore is very slim, not impossible but not far from it. I'm not a recruiter but I do work alongside a recruitment team who fill both temporary and permanent positions in Oil and Gas in the UK and o...

Re: Current Career

Having had Dave as a supervisor previously I would always tend to take heed of any advice coming from him. I would question the L&D adviser over the IOSH instructor statement. There is no requirement to be registered with BSC to deliver IOSH training. From the IOSH website All trainers who wish to d...

Re: train the trainer-MEWP/Work at Height

Juliet, I'd be very careful there as training someone to deliver toolbox talks is very different from training someone to train an operator on MEWP's or any other piece of work equipment. IPAF Instructor training is 5 days. The trainee instructor must have 3 years + operator experience along with va...

Re: Abrasive Wheels

Si,

Have a word with your wheel supplier.

Some offer free training if you are buying in large enough quantities.

Re: Work/Career: I have complete lack of motivation ? don't feel empowered

T I feel your pain. I am in pretty much the exact same situation. Lots to do but zero motivation to get it done. The team which once had 4 full time members is now just me. I can't think of anything to say that is motivational for you but before you decide if it's time for a fresh start maybe a meet...

Re: Mobile Scaffold Advice

It's a no from me I'm afraid - any scaffold tower instruction manual will tell you not to mix and match (or at least it should) What grim72 said but I'd also include that any training, whether PASMA accredited or not, should highlight that replacement parts must be compatible and the only way you c...

There is no such thing as a FLT Licence .... You can drive a FLT on a standard Full Car Driving License.
You can drive a Fork Lift Truck without any kind of driving license.

Re: Lifting Plan for minor lifts

Hi Ian,

I don't have any forms that I could share but why not get a couple of the operators and sit down with them to modify the existing form.

Re: Training/Refreshers

As per Dave's post above within the Oil and Gas industry the OPITO standard is generally a requirement of most companies for banksman/slinger training. Stage 1 is a 3 day course onshore which covers the basics of legislation, slinging techniques, hand signals, radio protocol etc. Stage 2 is complete...
