Re: Mobile ladders with platforms as permanent stairs

This is NOT my area, but wouldn't the frequency of use, the height of the access equipment, the weight and size of items expected to be lifted - all be part of an overall RA? Libraries and small engineering stores regularly use wheeled or sliding access ladder type arrangements to reach higher shelv...

Re: Fire test report: MHCLG BS 8414 HPL

An interesting read, even although much of it was far too technical for my pea brain!! I was interested by the legal 'get out of jail' type blurb at the front of the report which aims to provide some non stick teflon coating for the authors, and the large amount of redacted information within the re...

Re: Monday 30th March 2020

Morning from a grey but still West London after a very windy few days. Apparently 3c out there, but I have been for a walk already and it feels much colder. I have been up from 3.30am on a video conference after a significant (non CV-19) incident within our estate required a crisis management team t...

Re: Talking about Mental Health

I don't want to be ungrateful, but the Govt's £5m grant to mental health charities announced yesterday isn't going to stretch very far. Even if restricted to England alone, it wouldn't pay for an extra GP per county. Lets hope its an interim payment as there will be a tsunami of mental health issues...

Re: Sunday 28 March 2020 British Summer Time

Thanks for the reminder that summer is here 😂 My neighbour are living in Ireland with elderly parents at the mo. Their tv aerial is banging and crashing in the high (summer) winds. Not sure what to do or how to go about it I cant contact them. Any aerial contractor or roofer is only likely to remove...

Re: Friday 27 March

Like all employers, the Civil Service has been hugely effected and mass absence is effecting every Dept. The buildings I look after are between 60% to 90% empty, with many staff unable to work due to remote access restrictions. With 10s of millions of self employed and employed people applying for u...

Re: Friday 27 March

I wish I lived near you Alexis as still have a tarmac gang outside my house with their bleeping roller and other machinery. They somehow seem to think that replacing paving slabs with tarmac is essential. Makes me mad How much of what we learn from this will influence us tomorrow? I wish I shared yo...

Re: Vehicle sharing?

So many are at work that do not need to be yet we have to stop this thing spreading. Profits (assuming you are a company) are secondary at...

Re: How many of us are still at our work locations?

All change. I am now home and self isolating after an assessment by our occy health experts Of course I am happy to isolate its sensible, but it has wobbled my own personal feelings of indestructibility (aka denial) . My new job description is 'vulnerable member of staff' It seems I am not the Peter...

Re: How many of us are still at our work locations?

Nice to see that replacing the pavement outside my house is considered as essential 10 guys, not able to maintain social distancing - especially in their tatty minibus! To be fair, when UK retail and leisure are closed, it seems pathetic that construction and manufacturing can decide whether they ar...
