Re: First Aid at Work Training – A Notice For Employers And Training Providers

My workplace deals with heavy machinery, and lots of sharp edged metal, so I enrolled myself and a colleague on a Catastrophic Bleeding Control course, to learn how and when to use tourniquets or haemostatic dressings. I have seen one serious bleed accident since being here and normal first aid band...

Re: Welders Air Fed Respirators

Great thread. Very useful advice here. Are the pre-use checks a requirement or just good practice?

Re: Air monitoring frequency

Ignore my query - just found the information in Regulation 10 of the COSHH regs. Recommendation is every 12 months.

Air monitoring frequency

Sounds like a simple question, but even google is not very helpful. I'm trying to determine the frequency for air monitoring. I am in a new role in manufacturing involving MIG welding and have recently had a statutory inspection visit from Allianz and one of the comments is regarding COSHH assessmen...

Can an employer charge for PPE?

The answer to this is Section 9 of the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974, and it's pretty clear (to me anyway). But. My company has a safety shoe reimbursement policy whereby it will pay up to £35 for safety footwear (as an example) for anything not on the approved list; or will allow individua...

Re: Work at Height query

Thanks for the replies. I gave a bad example of the scissor lift. What I want to know is, can a safety belt with lanyard be used when working at height, or should a full harness be worn? I can't find anything definitive online.

Work at Height query

Are safety belts permissible for working at height i.e. in a scissor lift, or should a full harness and fall restraint lanyard used?
I have trawled through the Work at Height Regulations 2005 but cannot find anything definitive.

Many thanks.

HSE website down?

Might just be me, but I cannot get onto HSE website.
In particular after information on skin surveillance.

Re: Help

I would suggest using a scissor lift MEWP to gain access, however be aware of the weight limitations if handballing stock onto it. And obviously correct training for the operators.
