Re: Tuesday - 02 July 2019

Good luck with the Validation interview- though you won't need it. I found it hard to remember some of the assignments they ask about last week- it was my Validation interview for HSD2. I am invoicing and updating risk assessments today - it is a lovely 27 degrees in the office at the moment. We don...

Re: NEBOSH / NVQ L5 / NCRQ my thoughts

I have just completed the HSD2 from the NCRQ Diploma- the third and final book is at home. Whilst I tried to do a NEBOSH certificate distance learning and really struggled, I have found the NCRQ books more suited to me. I think one issue with the NEBOSH Course I was doing and the material is it was ...

Re: Safety Lighting & Fire Risks

Hi Becky From my understanding, emergency lighting should be able to power when there is no electric- as often in a fire you can lose power. Therefore, there is a standard of so long battery pack up (I don't know how long this is - but I am sure a fire guru can confirm and also confirm that I am rig...

Re: Line Marking in a warehouse

We used road line marking paint. After 5 years, it is just starting to get worn. We did clean the floor first, and lightly rubbed the surface with wire wool (small warehouse so not too bad). Preperation seems to be key. Especially when our warehouse manager told me they wouldn't last 6 months. Yours...

Residential Fire Safety

Hello, I know this may be a bit off topic but, I live in a block of flats. We have a communal fire system. All good except: We have discovered the fire brigade have no entry to the electrical cupboards, which are locked and tenants don't have a key. When a Sky engineer asked for access to update the...

Re: Confined space rescue plan

Hello Ewan, The type of rescue plan would depend on the confined space. For example, as we never leave the chamber, and are always in visual and aural range of the engineer down the hole our rescue plan is to raise him up as soon as possible using the winch, and as safely as possible. We have gas de...

Re: Question that I can't answer...

Re: Comprehending prosecutions and fines.

From reading the article there are several reasons why the fine was so large. As the employer and landlords the council are responsible. They will have insurance to cover such events to a degree. This was not the first time this had happened: His later fall in August was one of 11 similar accidents ...
