Re: University challenge I

Hi Dave,

I did a similar thing a number of years ago.

Contact your nearest uni and I'm sure they will help you out! I when on their website and email the research department.

Thanks

Re: Erecting Barbed Wire Method Statement

Thanks for the heads up!

The barbed wire is to be placed on the top of 2.4m hoarding panel posts; just two line's of it.

I am very comfortable with work at height; I've just never used barbed in the sense of handing it and erecting it on to posts.

Thanks

Excavations

Hi All,

I was hoping someone could help me!

What is the depth people can work in excavations before it is propped, shored or battered back?

Does it depend on the ground condition and what the composition of the ground is?

I have seen references to a 1.2m rule and 1.5m.

Many thanks

Col

Re: Scaffolding Load Notice

I would check the design supplied by the scaffolding company to see what class load the scaffold is. Then ask the hire company what the point loading is of each wheel and add the weight of the materials and operatives.

Re: Fatigue at Work

Hello Lex,

I understand fatigue management is taken very seriously on the railways.

If the employer has moved him depots they should take his travel time into consideration in my opinion.

You need to address this issue with the COSS or team leader.

Re: Scaffolding Dismantle

Hi, To erected/ dismantled or alter any scaffolding you must be a qualified scaffolder (http://cisrs.org.uk/faq/#qualifications). You will also find the NASC website useful (https://www.nasc.org.uk/). If you don't follow the safety guidance set out by them you will be open to prosecution by the HSE....

Carbon footprint calculate

Hi All,

I am looking for a carbon footprint calculator for a medium-sized business. Within the company we have varied size lorries and a number of vans.

Does anyone have any recommendations? I don't even mind paying a small fee!

Thanks

Colin
