Re: New job advice

It is a hard choice to walk away but sometimes you have to. Sounds like it would have been a horrendous task and to do it part time? no. To try and be helpful for future situations... I am just getting the feeling i may be makeing a bad choice they more or less offerd me job before i went for interv...

Re: CCTV Retail saved images length

3 years from the date of the accident unless they are under 18 than its 3 years from when they turn 18. Which potentially could be 21 years. Get yourself a portable harddrive and copy the incidents on to that. You dont need hours of footage, just what you think is relevent. That could be as little a...

Re: First Aid - Employee Refusal To Go To Hospital

Any first aiders reading this - ask your employer what insurance or protection you have in case you make a wrong judgement You don't need any. We have the Social Action Responsibility and Heroism Act to protect us from such things, as long as we are not grossly neglegent and do totally stupid thing...

Re: NCRQ First Assignment

Well done on the merit :) Finally passed the 4th assignment on section 2 after 4 attempts. Feedback was shocking so it was really hard to pin point what they wanted. After speaking to a tutor I ended up changing just a single line from my 3rd attempt submission and I passed. A little frustrated with...

Re: NCRQ and future job prospects

My only concern with this option is how future employers will see this qualification. When I've spoken to my manager he basically said that it was a mickey mouse qualification and would not give it the time of day. However, I do feel that there are other factors at play. The NCRQ is not a micky mou...

Re: What counts as business use for a car?

Lets assume the driver has no restriction on passengers - they didnt mention any and they would have at the time. The driver coulld put in a claim of mileage if they wanted to but they wouldn't get paid for the hour of travelling time. It would be like a change of venue for their work day. (I think ...

What counts as business use for a car?

An employee came to me today and asked this as they have been asked to pick other employees up and take them to one of our sites, and then take them back. Their parents freaked out and said you can't do that because you won't be insured. I was initially inclined to agree, but advised speaking to the...

Online Training Aids

I was reading another thread about training and someone mentioned Kahoot. I was going to have a look at it and then decided I didnt really want people to have to download things onto their phones. I have been looking at Google Forms, which in terms of creating online quizzes or exam papers is great ...

Re: H&S of travelling workers

Start of with a consultation with the engineers. See what they are saying. If they are not experienceing problems then dont try and fix something that isnt broken. If they are experiencing problems, you have the bases to take it to your bosses and say we need to do something about this.

Re: Riddor

There is no point in you hassling work over documentation. It's either a pointless excersise with no end goal or its a job for solicitors. If you intend on putting in a claim against the company, go to an injury laywer and let them deal with it. Don't try and get evidence first and then got to a sol...
