Re: IOSH South East Branch

Hi GLen,

Makes sense, it is hard sometimes with the IOSH groups to know the best one for your location.

I just thought I would throw the suggestion out there, but being the other side of the Dartford Tunnel I agree with you regarding the journey being a nasty one.

Dixon's Chimney Incident

Afternoon folks, I don't know if people saw the articles about the man who got trapped at the top of the 290 ft chimney (https://metro.co.uk/2019/10/28/police-try-rescue-man-trapped-290ft-air-giant-chimney-10996398/). Tragically he died yesterday during the rescue. From reports this morning, the lad...

Re: IOSH South East Branch

I am a member of the Thames Valley Branch of IOSH but not been to a meeting- maybe once I resurface from the assignment, get my CV sorted and can start looking for a new job. Our page is here: https://www.iosh.com/membership/our-membership-network/our-branches/thames-valley-branch/ which, depending ...

Re: Near Miss Phone App

GDPR shouldn't be an issue- there is specific allowance made for accident reporting. However, if the issue is the fact their details could be shared globally or not those within the relevant teams etc, then how about a system which saves the users detail but, for general access then creates an anony...

Re: Machine safety — Safety distances

As long as his head is only in his hands, and he is not threatening to put his head within the safety distance of a mixer. In all honesty- this is one of those issues which shows how complex health and safety can be- and how guarding can sometimes seem practicable but if it prevents the work from be...

Re: NCRQ HSD1 Complete

Hello Anders, Good luck with HSD2- the second book is a step up from the 1st, but in a good way. Remember to read the assignment carefully, make sure you are answering what they are asking and check the required outcomes for the assignment. Also- remember to use your tutors. Most people struggling s...

Re: Air monitoring frequency

I have just been reading about COSHH in my NCRQ HSD 3, Chapter 2 (Hazardous substances II) , and I am sure it said somewhere annual or as advised by your insurance company- therefore I would maybe contact them to check what they are requesting. Unless I dreamt it- which is possible after doing late ...

Re: Help with an exam question

Would that be the Plan, Do, Check Act cycle, in which case the key element would be the Plan element I believe? However that is coming from someone with IOSH/ NCRQ knowledge which for NEBOSH I believe is different.

So, I guess my answer is not much help, sorry 🤔

Re: Training recommendations

Maybe have a look at the IOSH website - some of their CPD training courses may be of interest. Then there is always the first aid courses which are always good to have. Depending on the sites you look after COSHH may be another area of interest?

Re: Ncrq - assignment 2

I agree- ask the NCRQ tutor's. They are very good, and I have had mine replying to emails at 7pm before. They can also do phone calls sometimes to discuss things if they feel it helps you. They are a resource to be used :) I also found the NCRQ student forum to be helpful sometimes as long as you ar...

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...
