HAVs

Hey all. So, we're looking at HAVs for our grinder/power tool operators....obviously all power tools come with the vibration levels from the manufacturer, is this enough to go on or should you monitor the tool at a prescribed period to ensure the vibration level is still accurate? I'm not so fussed ...

Re: How to show evaluation of compliance?

Hence doing it as part of the internal audit process, you have shown where you checked, simple. Its saved us a lot of time doing it this way.

Re: How to show evaluation of compliance?

I do this via the internal audits, I did used to carry out a separate evaluation but it wasn't worth it.

Basically listed the legislation that applied and covered it during the audit. Way easier.

Re: Knowing when to give up

I go through the same thing every so often, you feel like walking away and doing something completely different instead. It normally doesn't last too long though as I feel that we're doing the company the greater good, some people will never listen, you just have to block that out and focus on the b...

Re: asbestos survey

In my opinion, most definitely. If it was being managed correctly there would be regular, documented inspections they'd be able to supply you. It sounds like it wasn't managed very well at all. Regardless of the low rating, if its been disturbed then the report they've gave you is out of date and th...

Re: Lost Time Injury

It seems like the medical professionals have gave the all clear which would indicate that they should be able to work.

Maybe they're looking down the lines of a claim also so hence taking time off.

Would I class it as an LTI for my organisation, no.

Re: interview

I really can't be done with this kind of interview.

A friend has an interview at Amazon coming up, she googled Amazon interviews and questions like "how would you solve problems if you were from Mars?"

I'd walk out at that point.

Re: Riddor on broken finger off for 11 days

I would say so as its an over 7 day incapacitation of the worker.

Re: Young Person Risk Assessment

Do you not have another risk assessment template you can use and then add the relevant information to that?

Its not something you should be lazy about ! Its a very simple process.

Re: H&S News etc

i'm a member of the british safety council so get updates from them. also subscribe to the HSE and netregs which send updates as and when. was subscribed to Barbour for a while, it cost too much for me and my organisation when i could get the info from elsewhere although i'm sure it serves a purpose.

Re: E learning diploma

Thanks Mat, RRC is the way forward I think. Dodds, I did my certificate via e learning and did okay.

Re: Cleaner Air

Why don't you look at the dust itself and try and capture it rather than putting measures in place to deal with it? Regular housekeeping, ie. hoovering can be effective if done on a strict regime type basis. We do that in some of our welding environments, after each weld someone will be hoovering th...
