Re: Payments to First Aiders

Re: HSfB 13 years old

Congratulations to HSFB and appreciation to everyone involved in its smooth running. I came to this site after being sent from the IOSH forum where I was very unwelcome, too many heads up their own bottoms (may have changed now). This site welcomed me and helped me progress my career not patronising...

Ban from site following injury

On one of my regular specialists forums (UK SAABS) one of the members has posed a question, its not my specialist subject so thought someone here may have the answer, I understand morally it is wrong and in a normal employe / employer relationship it would be a very bad move but the PC / contractor ...
