Re: Cleaning wood dust off operatives

Hi All, Lets all take a few steps back here. Where is the dust from? Why so much dust? You mention LEV, can it be improved? Can the tools or equipment be improved with better extraction? (i'm a fan of the Festool range) Are we talking about fine dusts from sanding or larger shavings from planning? E...

Re: Racking inspection training

Hi Andy, I've looked at this in the past and ultimately decided we didnt have enough racking, most can be classed as shelving. So gave it some thought. If you do have lots of high bay racking at risk from FLT's or VNA Trucks then I would ask your racking supplier for guidance and build a checklist f...

Re: Hazardous v High Risk

Hi Spesh,

Personally, I'd call an activity or process "High Risk" and a situation or area "Hazardous"

Hope that helps

Hired or Rented Equipment

Hi All, Late Friday Puzzle, When hiring scaffold (PASMA type), the supplier must supply an instruction book to ensure the user assembles, or uses it in the correct manner. Does the same rule apply to any other equipment that is hired, I'm thinking specifically lifting gear. And if so under which reg...

Re: AED maintenance

I've just done a full service on ours, literally this week. I replaced all 10 batteries and replaced the pads. That's about as much as can be done as far as I know, the batteries were all showing a charge but replaced with the pads after 5 years, the gel starts to dry up apparently. More than that a...

Re: Driving

Ok, I've been watching responses for a while now. And I think we're all on the same page, maybe just in different places. My intention was never to suggest a repeat driving test, something more like a driver awareness course, (like the speeding one) but not as intense. Problems arise when someone is...

Re: Driving

Thanks Guys, Opinions from both ends there.. I find a natural reluctance to take a test we all think we're experts at, driving. but yes I agree, is it practical in all cases, no. But we must find a happy medium. I will continue to evaluate our own situation here, but I doubt I will get further than ...

Driving

Hi Guys, Whilst reviewing our driving policy and developing a handbook I've learned much, had my eyes opened to how much we don't do when we should, and picked up plenty of new ideas. One I am considering is a refresher driving course for occasional drivers. We have pool cars, many people use them, ...

Re: What counts as business use for a car?

Hi All, I found this thread while researching a new driving policy brief. Useful link I found was https://www.rospa.com/road-safety/resources/free/employers/ Near the bottom on the right is the "Using Own Vehicle" booklet (grey fleet), it rightly points out that when an employer expects or requests ...

Re: H&S of travelling workers

I can see your point ssmith65 My main concern is the older more experienced engineers are refusing the overseas work, and because of this, more and more inexperienced contractors are being sent, as I see it, its an accident waiting to happen. No accidents as yet so no push from that direction but wi...
