Re: Over 3.5t vehicles for deliveries

Bernie highlighted another point about the license, some additional problems this will generate. The drivers will need a C1 license, the likes of me have it by default (grandfather rights) this was stopped a long time ago so younger drivers will need to train for it (more expense). Most youngsters w...

Re: Warehouse walkways

You have a number of things to consider, whats going to be stored, at what height, stability factors, what operations are going to be happening in the warehouse. You also have to consider the internal shape of the building, internal access routes (pedestrian and vehicle) and fire exits, every foot o...

Re: Asbestos Survey

Unfortunately very little is Black and White with health and safety. Every one of my sites has an asbestos survey, even if built after 1999, only 3 have asbestos present, we now only need to manage 3 sites for asbestos, we will never need to a survey for the others again. Are you sure the roof tiles...

Re: Backing onto Loading Bays

This is a tricky one which really needs to be completed for each location. Some of our sites need a banksman, our 7.5-ton trucks always need a banksman because they are reversing where other delivery crew may be loading their trucks, driver and mate must be banksman trained. Our distribution sites u...

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...
