Re: Workplace Safety Screens

The reason they are more infectious is that the droplets contain a higher viral load. Transmission is exactly the same and therefore precautions are exactly the same. The behaviour of droplets cannot change. They still travel in the same direction, the same distance, the same dispersal patterns as b...

Re: Workplace Safety Screens

If you have screens, why do you need distancing? surely its one or the other and I would have thought that the closer the screens are to people, the more effective they would be. If you do a search online for covid screens you will get a whole bunch of retailers cashing in on this. xldisplays have a...

Re: FRA's / reporting fire door defects

If you are finding that many defects with doors and dont want to repeat the same thing over and over again making the report huge, create an appendix you can attach to the report that lists all the defects you've found, ie 1. Automatic door closer not fitted 2. Automatic door closer does not close d...

Re: Sewage related sickness

If you are going to have a discussion, get it properly minuted and make sure you have a copy you can access should you get escorted from the building some day. Evidence. It protects you when the smelly stuff hits the fan and supports you if you take further action.

Re: Sewage related sickness

On the risk/safety side of sewage and ppe etc, I will have to defer to others as it's not my area of 'expertise'. However, on taking on your company... Evidence is what you will need. If you have done everything verbally so far you will need to go backover it all in writting. I would start out by e-...

Re: Fire Risk Assessment

I fully expect this is an issue with this fire service only and any other fire service wouldnt have an issue. I've come across the same. I worked for a company that had facilities all over the country and we all used the same FRA template. We opened a new facility in a new county and the Fire servic...

Re: Working from home during Covid and PAT testing issued equipment

Have a look at Table 1 in this guidance. I suspect most equipment you will have will fall in to the up to 5 years catagory.

Re: Refusing to wear a mask

From a legal website What if an employee refuses to wear a face covering after being asked? An employer may identify as part of its risk assessment that face masks (and/or other forms of PPE) are one of the necessary measures to protect employees and visitors. In other cases, it will be mandatory f...

Re: Refusing to wear a mask

Any chance of knowing why they don’t want to wear it? Being awkward or a valid reason from their perspective. I can’t really see any benefit of them going to the doctors other than placing an unnecessary burden n the surgery. Even trying to get to see a GP at this stage is a problem in itself. I've...
