Re: Loading/Unloading machinery - responsibility

Also worth remembering, if they're on your premises then its under your duty of care. Keep that in mind.

Re: NCRQ vs NVQ vs NEBOSH

Just to balance your opinion on things Dodds, it should be kept in mind that NEBOSH have debunked the myth of 'NEBOSH speak' and they aim to be as fair as possible to a stringent set of criteria. Have a read of their newsletter and the article in it titled MYTH: To pass NEBOSH examinations you have...

Re: NCRQ vs NVQ vs NEBOSH

The trouble with NEBOSH is that even though you may be on the right track with your answer in your exams, as its not depicted in the way NEBOSH want you won't get any marks. They are very harsh on that, you need to answer it the NEBOSH way. In my last exam I had a question which stated "comment on t...

Re: HSE AED training

Well done Alexis. It's strange how it's impossible to find historic e-bulletins via their website. I get loads of them and just keep the ones that might be of use. But sometimes you feel the need to look for something you might not have kept! But as to the HSE not having updated their info, it is a...

Re: Is periodic testing required for home based employees

Its a valid question but could you imagine you inspected a house where someone works from home and it needed completely rewired to meet your standards?
Don't think anyone would pay to fix it and the company wouldn't want to either.

Re: Smoking policy

Can they legally stop you from smoking if its not on the company premises? Yes, I know its on company time but even if its in public place you'd expect that their rules would have no grounds, I guess as its company policy they will just state that you're being paid by them so you do as they state. B...

Re: Working with no electric and running water.

if they are trying to force you out then you can sue them for constructive dismissal, you've raised your concerns and they're basically ignoring you.
good luck with it all.

Re: anonymous reporting

Pros - people may use it more because they won't get the finger pointed at them for raising safety concerns Cons - no accountability, can be used to blame other people, can be used irresponsibly without fear or reprisals, no way to give feedback to individuals i encourage everyone here to put their ...

Re: Incident rate

Rather than focus on the hours or rate, look at the incidents for both years. If one year there were 10 recordables and the next 9 then yes its an improvement, if both years were the same amount but the rate is down due to manhours worked then theoretically its an improvement as there were more expo...

Re: Complaint to NEBOSH

You can complain to NEBOSH but its not their problem. Talk to your course provider, they will tell you the same. I have done the diploma (still got a couple of exams to complete) and they can't possibly teach you everything in class, this course demands a studying ethic beyond no other. The NEBOSH b...
