Re: Near Miss Phone App

BTEC, City & Guilds ect If they don't have any I would document their work records, specific skills and abil...

Most power tools operate at 30-150Hz (1800 - 9000rpm) Therefore, they are unlikely to reduce HAV exposure." But i can not find evid...

Re: face fit testing

Hi All, Currently doing lots of work in this area at the moment. We have certain airborne contaminants that I need to protect from and after speaking to those who know, the best way forward for anything other than nuisance dust is to use an air fed system. So that's what we are doing. Face fit testi...

Re: acetylene pressure

I personally have removed Acetylene from all 3 sites I have encountered it.

There probably are situations that need it, but I've always been able to find a safer alternative

Re: Vending Machine Advice Needed

Thanks guys,

I had googled round the subject and came to the same assumption, but not my area of expertise so thought I'd check.

Re: Accident, Incident etc Spreadsheet

Hi All, I know this is an old post but I'm bringing it back because the topic is the same. I have built a spreadsheet to record and analyse accident data, it's deliberately very basic to enable root cause over big data and only records department/area of incident and type of injury. This enables me ...
