Lith Ex fire Extinguishers

Anyone any experience with these? They have been designed for EV fires but I know nothing else about them. Are they any real use or are they just a placebo? how do they put out lithium based fires?

Re: Advice on how to develop my career

NEBOSH is sadly the only game in town now NCRQ killed itself with stupidity. See if your company will pay for the courses. Id suggest the two week classroom courses rather than distance learning stuff, but if you have to do it yourself via distance learning, do the online open exam ones, they are s ...

Re: Building Control Frustration

"the checklist only asks if they are present not if they are correct, that's your role to check" :lol: :lol: It would be funny if it wasnt so pathetic. What value is it just to check they are there? I've had this before as well. Tcik box excersise saying yes we have signage, but when I as...

Structural inspection on a partial submerged walkway

Anyone delt with inspecting structure like bridges or walkways were the support structure is submerged? what regs cover it? how often do they need to be inspected? what if you cant see the supports because the water (or soaked mud) obscures them. Its an issue that might be coming up and a bunch of u...

Re: NG2 Risk Assessment

Ask for feedback on the results first. See if there is a score. When I failed my NEBOSH and asked for the score section by section I discovered I had achieved the pass mark but NEBOSH had adjusted the mark down by 10 points. They claim they do this if they feel the exam was too easy. (Ie too many pe...

Re: Folding Dining Tables - Annual Inspection/Maintenance service

Good point. Our chairs were numbered but there were a lot of them, Fixed seating can just use a plan I guess or even just use a block number However, if there is a small number of tables and chairs to inspect and you can do them all in one hit, you probably wouldnt need unique identifiers. If its in...

Re: Folding Dining Tables - Annual Inspection/Maintenance service

All equipment should be inspected on a regular basis. Tables and chairs included, even if they are not fold up ones. - Says the man who had to regularly inspect 2000 chairs... Take a school, how many kids lean their chairs back on two legs? weakens the legs, next thing, they snap. A simple in house ...

Re: Fire Warden Coverage

I think there are some recommended ratios but not a legal requirement. For Low, Medium and High Risk premises I seem to recall a ratio of 1 to 50, 20 and 15. However, I also recall other recomendations of doing it per floor, so if you have 50 over 2 floors, its 2 wardens not 1 in a low risk. Then lo...

Re: When is COSHH risk assessment needed

Posting a link to the MSDS might help someone explain specific sections more clearly. This is a bit of a grey area and has come up many many times in the past. In the end, I found it easier to do an assessment for everything. It doesnt take long and it only takes one inspector with a pole up their t...

Re: Maxmium occupancy of a public space

If i recall, there is also various guidance in the documents for dfferent types of place. I dont think there are difference for space capacity but there other restriction such as how many seats you can place together before you need a gap for evacuations and stuff of that nature. (sorry, no links at...
