Re: Knowing when to give up

I have sent my Boss an email (massive) explaining what my issues are, his reply was excellent but showed a lack of understanding of mental health, his reply has spurred me on to ed...

Re: Knowing when to give up

Thanks for the support Messey.

I think I have dropped into a deep depression at the moment, I think I have the skills to get out of it, I have done so before and sure I will again.

Re: Policy that staff wont follow. Thoughts please

How was the policy generated? Were the workers involved with the making of the policy? Were their views taken into consideration? If the policy states "disciplinary action will be taken" you are fighting an uphill battle that you will not win. If you state using this will prevent excess pressure on ...

Re: Pallets next to a walk way

I am not familiar with the use of IBC, we have a few for add blue but we only stack 1 high anywhere. I take it it's not long term storage if it is does it need to be on a bund? are there likely to be any spillage on the outside wich may cause harm if contacted by pedestrians? What are the properties...

Re: Pallets next to a walk way

We will need some more details. If it's empty pallets you can have a lot more than if there is a 7ft American fridge freezer on it. If it has a substantial strength box taking the whole of the pallet area then 2 may be possible. I prefer pallets to be stacked in racking. There are no guidelines I ha...

Re: H&S News etc

Perhaps I am a cheapskate.

I get free email bulletins from the HSE website, that does me OK.

I also subscribe to some trade mags but a lot of their info comes from the HSE anyway.

Re: Cleaner Air

Agreed with Alexis, carry out a WEL test. Perhaps a temporary measure install a portable air conditioning unit, this could reduce the concentration by dilution and filtering the air keeping the workers cool, remember to put in a routine to clean the filters regularly. Along with normal housekeeping,...

Re: E learning diploma

I use Phoenix for my Diploma (advert at bottom of page), they do not do Diploma E-learning, they do it distance learning but they have lots of support modules to download. They offer good support but you need to ask for it, they have recently taken on new staff who are excellent and very knowledgeab...

Re: Risk assessments on pregnant people

Interesting though that the emphasis is on including pregnancy considerations in your normal risk assessments. I don't think i've ever seen a risk assessment include pregnancy issues in it unless it was specifically done for someone. I too was surprised to read that Stephen. All of our risk assessm...

Re: Risk assessments in work

Next time you have a safety meeting bring it up and ask how the company could defend themselves after an accident that involved any of your neglected subjects.
The HSE WILL ask for the training records, if these are not available or dated they will dig even deeper.
