Re: Occupational health records

I recently covered this in my Diploma material. Not totally sure if it was if the employee leaves or if the company ceases but I would imagine both would apply.

standing working time without rest

What time would you consider adequate for an employee to work standing up before they can take a break / sit down? Small amount of movement few metres, light weight handling, resasonable amount of bending. I understand the personal capability, and all other environmental conditions to consider bits ...

Re: Painting....

Re: Painting....

Re: Man Dies Charging iPhone in bath

When you are doing the risk assesment and system of safe working for making toast in the staff canteen, its because people like this exist.
