Re: What next?

Thanks for the Bump WB. I must have missed this one. Welcome to the forum Laura, I am currently looking for a new role so quite an authority for this at the moment. Sign up to a few job boards, I use Indeed, Reed, CV-Library and jobsite, there are a few specialist H&S agencies, Shirley Parsons being...

Re: Advice in terms of qualifications achieved and job variety

Welcome to the forum Paul What do you feel comfortable doing? From your post it appears that construction appeals to you, in which case you should look in that direction for roles. How confident do you feel taking on a management role in a new direction? there is a difference between a manager who d...

Re: Qualifications

Welcome to the Forum Mark. Join as an affiliate member then request an upgrade to Technical, you need to send them an email, If I was you I would be tempted to ask them if the qualifications you have already are suitable. In the meantime start your CPD. You clearly have experience and that is why yo...

Re: Storage Carousel - LOLER

I would say this would be covered under PUWER, the equipment is not designed for lifting but for storage, lifting is a part of the process of being stored, as much as sack and pump trucks lift the equipment being moved but its primary job is to transport items, these are covered by PUWER. Another wa...

Re: Health and Safety Management

What's in a title? Health and Safety Manager/Administrator could mean exactly the same thing. Its whats in their job description that matters. Pretty much this, you also have the organisation structure to take into consideration, some companies employ an administrator and expect them to do everythi...

Re: Personal Noise Risk Assessment

Before you can even consider hearing protection you need to know exactly what you are dealing with. Get a noise survey done, I would suggest you get an outside contractor because it can get very involved if you have several sources of noise. When you know the maximum noise level, you can then consid...

Re: RIDDOR or not?

Has it happened at work? He is a new starter so obviously not. Under what condition could it be a RIDDOR? You are aware of a pre-existing medical condition and you would be expected to make reasonable adjustments to ensure he can work effectively and it doesn't get any worse, you are expected to mon...

Re: Is this a serious cause for concern?

Hi Red and welcome to the forum. It is fantastic that you are thinking of your and your fellow pupils' Safety. If you tell the Daily Mail there may be children playing conkers down the end without full PPE but you are not sure because you can't see very well it could make front page news, however, t...

Re: Live Working

We have a no live working policy, slightly different industry doing electrical installs. We are however allowed to do live testing, because apparently, that is not working, just testing. I totally support the no live working policy, if it can be done dead, then it must be done dead. So this is the ...

Re: HAV

Do you require an employee to disclose all medical issues prior to starting work? If so and they never told you I would send them packing. Great attitude. Someone not to work for. Is it fair for a company to bear the cost of this through no fault of their own? I think this thread has been blown wel...
