Re: Electric Vehicles

Having just watched a video of a car battery going up. Suppression is the only answer. The reaction is far to violent. Unfortunately, no one is going to install a suppression system, so Leave it is. I think that will be a new slide in the training program. Work bays are going to be interesting as th...

Re: I cant speak NEBOSHian.

The question was exactly as I posted. The preamble DOES NOT in any way shape or form make a blind bit of difference. But please, show me the exact part that does determine whether or not the 'actions' part of the question is the types of enforcement notice taken or the 'actions' list in NEBOSH cours...

Electric Vehicles

Looking for information on Electric Vehicles in regards to fire safety. Any issues with charging and fire fighting that might come up. Also charging points and how often electricians should be inspecting them. Going through IEC61851 for charging points at the moment, just wondering what else is out ...

Re: I cant speak NEBOSHian.

As with any question from any exam, there are "operative" words as well as the dreaded NEBOSH command words and the amount of marks applied will be shown in brackets, which I found to be helpful to try and break it down into less stressful thoughts. ;) With regards to the inspection one Stephen men...

Re: I cant speak NEBOSHian.

The best way i have found to learn NEBOSH speak is to download and print the syllabus. It explains what you are going to learn, what the learning outcomes are and NEBOSH can only test you on those outcomes, its not like they can throw a spanner in to try and trick you. Also download and print a few...

I cant speak NEBOSHian.

This is really starting to annoy me now. About 5 years ago I had a look at the NGC, paid for an online course, and gave up. I just couldn't do it. The way things were done I just could retain information and write answers in the way NEBOSH wanted me to. I switched to the NCRQ instead and that was fi...

Re: Gove takes action to ban plastic straws, stirrers, and cotton buds

well, you say its good to ban these, but it turns out that whilst plastic straws are recyclable, the paper straws replacing them, not so much.

Re: Examples / case law/ case studies (recent) of consequences of not following procedures

To revisit this briefly. Although not exactly what the OP was after, one came up on SHP the other day where the company and an individual worker were found guilty of a death with the worker getting a prison sentance (suspended) not the directors of the company. https://www.shponline.co.uk/in-court/c...
