Re: Loading/Unloading machinery - responsibility

Thank you for such sound advice; I'll see what I can do about getting a Risk assessment done and gather as much info as I can toward the matter. If my manager requests that I do it again I'll ask that he send me authorisation to load by email. Good idea, get everything in writing, this should keep ...

Re: Loading/Unloading machinery - responsibility

Welcome to the forum Get a copy of the risk assessment for loading or unloading the trailers, I guess you do not have one so get The Health and safety department to do it, you need one. So many issues here, lots of variables that you have not mentioned, you say you drive onto the trailer, is this vi...

Re: Smoking policy

It may be an idea to ask the director why they can not smoke between buildings, I am sure you will get asked why at some stage. I need to know why things are done so if approached I can explain to the affected parties. I am doing a training package at the moment, one of the requirements is to wear s...

Re: Underdesk UPS Batteries

UPS are sealed units so very little problem I can see. make sure you position them to prevent kicking leads out but if leads are tucked out of the way, switches on the front / back out of reach it should be good. I used to repair the tills for Next, they had UPS under the counters, they took quite s...

Re: ISO & SALARY

I wasn't implying they would sack you for not doing ISO. If you left to go to another company you would restart your 2 years with no rights, and you do not know how secure the job would be there. Better the devil you know, unless its for a lot more money is the move worth it, only you have the answe...
