Re: New job advice

Wow! What a shower!!! In your first post my view was it would be an exciting challenge and maybe the fact they were employing someone was a positive move. But your interview account most definitely sounded horrendous and was shouting ' get the he'll out of there'. Maybe they are a negligent bunch of...

Re: First Aid - Employee Refusal To Go To Hospital

That's fine for a member of the public, but when they are an employee, isn't there a duty to 'cooperate with your employer' that could be invoked? Wow!!! "Invoked???" That sounds very Orwellian!! Forcing a member of staff to accept medical treatment against their will? I dont think so!! The nearest...

Exotic Fruit Causes Emergency Response !!

We had an odd afternoon last week. I am not part of the response team at work, but will obviously lend a hand/stick my nose in if I am around. I got a call to say occupiers of a small office (about 12 people) said they could smell gas. It was a bit concerning as the nearest gas supply is 11 floors u...

Re: Fire Doors

Tested? Not inspected?

It may be semantics but I would want to know which bit of 9999 is being referred to. Sadly it's a bit weighty for me to lug a copy on the train, but I would want a reference or rationale

Re: Latest on fire doors tests

What a mess. Thanks for sharing this info Let's hope that: 1) Landlords and enforcers don't panic and demand all composite doors are replaced, rather than using a risk based process (a concept that relies on competency and sound technical advice - both of which as Grenfell has shown, are in short su...

Re: Emergency Lighting

Why are they asking for these records ? Is it as part of a wider audit or for some other reason? Whilst they can request copies of records, your message implies they are asking for them retrospectively. Give them the discharge test records and a sample of monthly tests. As has been said, they will a...

Scaffolders!!!!!

I rarely get angry at work, but I am taking time out in my car and counting to 10 before my next move. Scaffolders have blocked two fire exits by erecting their scaffolding right across the final exit doors. These are required for about 500 staff if you divide the occupancy by the number of final ex...

Procedure For Abandoned Hot Works During An Evacuation?

Does anyone have any procedures for dealing with the control of abandoned hot works during an emergency evacuation? In line with most responsible persons, we have a very strict hot work permit system which includes a one hour (sometimes two hour) Cool down period, where hot works are ceased but staf...

Re: New cycling offences: causing death or serious injury when cycling

I am not sure what the standard of cycling is elsewhere in the UK but I work in Westminster. There are a number of prescribed cycle routes that meander thru and close to Parliament Sq. Indeed the poor guys wiped out by the terror attack today were on one of them. The cycling on some routes is more t...
