Re: Asbestos Question

Most of our sites are built after 2000. Each of our sites have had an asbestos survey, all but 3 state no asbestos present, the 3 that do have asbestos have control measures in place and regularly monitored. Thats another box ticked if the EHO visit. We know the state of our sites so no need to wond...

Re: Working at height permit to work confusion and perception

On our sites we have a permit to work system. We have a training module to train managers how to fill them out correctly. If there is anyone working at height a permit is always issued, the only exception is when it is a routine task such as changing a lightbulb on the top of a truck where a safe sy...

Re: Compare the Noise

This is a site I used to gain information and see what's about when I had my noise project, the company decided not to use them and bought some dodgy mickey mouse meters. Edit forgot to put link: https://www.noisemeters.co.uk/ I can not vouch for how good it is but it seems to be a major player and ...

Re: Risk Assessments

I am with you ss I was a bit concerned about this when I read it before, when I got home from work I couldn't find the post, then forgot about it. I was concerned that people reading this site may believe it, as I am sure you are aware, there is no safe level of asbestos, there is an acceptable leve...

Re: Pallet heights

Yes, I have done the risk assessment and currently, i have the 2 man lift in place. I am just finding it difficult to find this in regulations so that I can pass on to the supplier? There doesn't need to be a regulation for you to challenge a practice that is not safe at your end, just tell your su...

Re: Rack Netting

Hi Johnny welcome to the forum There is no need for them unless your risk assessment says otherwise. It depends on what is being stored and what level of access is required, do you need access from both side of the rack? Will people be walking past the other side while the racks are being loaded or ...

Re: A sensitive situation :/

I agreed with everyone else, until you mentioned the company paid for your NGC. This can throw a different light on things. Some companies who pay for the course put clauses in the CoE that if you leave within a specified time, you will have to pay back some (if not all) of the course fees. I've fr...

Re: Interviews for Head of safety

Free bump for you. Welcome to the forum. With interviews, it is pretty much luck of the draw that you get quizzed on what you know. What projects have you led in your current role? What is the industry you are specialised in, does it have similarities with your target job aspirations? If you only ha...

Re: Anybody else experience this ?

I agree with Dave. If having a chat doesnt work take it to an informal, formal level. Have a fact find, go into an office with the offender, take a note taker. Start of saying it is not a formal disciplinary but a way to obtaining the facts behind the situation, make them aware that it may be used a...

Re: Noise protection

Bit late to the party but I have a web page covering exactly this on thenoisechap.com. https://thenoisechap.com/optional-or-compulsory/ (That site isn't selling any services or generating ad revenue, its just an information site from a noise geek). Hope that may help. Excellent website thanks Adam,...

Re: Noise protection

You can make noise as complicated as you want, you can even go as far as to use Octave Band Analysis to work out your best protection method, you have hired a company to do your Noise survey and have their results, that is a good move. Check out this link about over protection. http://www.hse.gov.uk...
