Re: Sellafield Ltd incident reports and notices

Blimey, I have just read that report and although I am not nuclear engineer, it seems that Sellafield has more leaks than Boris cabinet 0 the sheer amount of leaks (liquid, chemical, waste and radiological) is alarming - isn't it?

Re: Lamp Shade Safety

Blimey MickG, that is one of the toughest questions I have heard on here for a while! (mainly as I haven't got a clue) I am pretty sure you would not be able to sell the items as BS compliant when the surface has been coated. My only advice to you is to contact the water based paint suppliers or man...

Re: Sprinkler systems / electrics

Ok, risk of electrocution ? When a sprinkler operates electrical equipment will get wet. High voltage equipment may create issues, but the appliances you mention should present a very low risk. Firstly, everyone will evacuate the wet area - trust me, it is not fun being under a sprinkler when it is ...

Re: Fire door adaptation

Thanks Messy - that sounds like a perfect answer and a sensible one too (I wasn't sure if there was any legislative reason that would prevent the fire door from being disguised (despite the good intentions). Agree about adding a sign above the door to help with visitors - though appreciate that due...

Re: Sunday - 10 November 2019

Morning all I too will not be able to get to any service to as I am not feeling too great. I have ex military friends who.i was supposed to be joing in Westminster, but I will have to settle with the tv. The absolute horror of war must never be forgotten, and from what I see going about my daily lif...

Re: Fire door adaptation

I have worked extensively in the past with EMI (Elderly Mentally Ill) clients and keeping them in the building and away from risk areas is problematic. These are often extraordinarily vulnerable clients with cognitive abilities during an emergency to a small toddler. As in general and forensic menta...

Re: Safe? Not so safe?

As Stephen says hard to tell from a 'selection' of photos. It is more than likely, those taking the pictures and displaying on Social Media have no understanding of Scaffolding or Health & Safety, Planning or Building Regulations and just fire these pictures blindly into the internet void that I cl...

Re: "Fire Marshal" training

WillPool is spot on. The law states that the employer must provide staff training and training must be commensurate with the risk presented (and identified by the FRA), given on induction and repeated periodically. So an oil refinery will need lots of training, a 12 storey hotel will require compete...

Re: Dixon's Chimney Incident

It's one thing getting to him up that ladder, but then what? It will need at least two rescuers who when they arrive at the top, will have the share the ladder with the victim as they release him and lower him 300ft That's a lot of line to carry, plus they would need safety lines and first aid gear ...

Re: Smart or Deadly?

I notice the Govt have ordered a review of Smart(?) motorways as drivers are finding them too complicated I smell a rat there and am not sure that 'too complicated' is the real reason. I wonder if safety and costs may well be a driving force behind this review. I hope so as if safety is not in the r...
