Re: frustrations with Senior management/ Cry for help

You are certainly not alone, you will probably find about 80% (no scientific proof, just my guesstimate) health and safety people are in the same boat. Health and Safety isn't wanted and is seen as an unnecessary expense, no one has died yet so why do we need to make things safer. Just cover your bo...

Re: Graduates Safety Talk

Here are the presentation and the quiz, as I said it's a bit dated it could do with some updating. It was the first presentation I ever did so it's not really that good, I will create some trainer notes so it makes a bit more sense when I have a second. Powerpoint The impact of Health and Safety cop...

Re: Graduates Safety Talk

I made a presentation for my microteach when I did my Award in Education and Training course. It includes a quiz that was published in the Guardian, looking at it now it's not very good but it may help you with ideas. It's designed to keep the audience engaged with participation and discussion from ...

Re: Proving competency to inspect equipment.

The way I have done it is. Complete a premises risk assessment if you don't already have one, this will highlight anything that needs inspection and/or testing. Create a risk assessment for anything highlighted, this will identify if inspection or maintenance is required (You should already have the...

Re: Keeping Records

You need to consider the data protection act. It's been a while since I read up on it but if I remember correctly you must only keep personal information for as long as it is needed, or words to that effect. So keeping it longer than the 3 years as mentioned earlier may be against the law. With the ...

Re: Sexist Signage

Either I'm getting older or the world is getting crazier. I'd swear people go looking for offence everywhere. More and more people seem unable to distinguish between something they don't agree with (such as something being gender-specific) and something which is 'offensive' and the goal is not only...

Re: Fatigue at Work

Before he was relocated did he have his consultation period? I am assuming he did because there was a lift arranged for him for a certain duration, this period should have been used to make arrangements for him to get to his place of work after the initial support expired. This is a reasonable reque...

Re: Property Damage case/ incident reporting clarification

I can only suggest it is if someone has an accident and only damaged stock or furniture, such as an flt hitting racking, dropping a bottle of a chemical damaging office equipment etc. It could have been hitting or falling on a person, not quite a near miss because an incident occurred but still in n...

Re: Does an external electrical cupboard need fire doors?

Welcome to the forum Alison I am not a fire specialist, we do have excellent fire specialists who regularly post here so here is some input from me until they comment. All of my sites have lockable fire doors on our electrical rooms, my assumption is to stop numpties turning things off just for fun,...
