Hi all,

Just received my HSD3 Assignment scenario and going to make a start on it today. Looks rather daunting but aiming to tackle it in bite sized chunks then put it all together towards the end.

See you in 6 weeks! ../. :roll: .salut [smilie=dweeba20.gif]

Re: Dust Exposure Limits

Hi Berni, Thanks for the correction. So going by this, the average is 0.061mg/m3 is well below the standard of 4 mg/m3 inhalable dust set by HSE and therefore no further action needs to be taken? That's how I would read it from the figures you've stated. Sounds like the testing company are having a...

Dust Exposure Limits

Hello, Maths has never been my strongest subject so I hope someone can assist on this; A client has had a clean air solutions company come in and leave monitoring devices around the production areas for 24 hours to sample the dust quantity in the air. Instead of using the HSE mg/m3 approach they hav...

Re: Practical Training vs e-Learning

Hello, I will always say it depends on the learning style of the individual as to which method of training is best suited. For me in particular I much prefer the E-Learning routes or distance learning however as your specifically asking about manual handling training I'll share my thoughts. What doe...

Re: IEMA Associate Member

Hi S&S, Thank you for your reply. I've seen that book. It is pricy! I wondered if it still matched the current syllabus for Associate level? I suppose either way it's going to give a good foundation of knowledge. NN Hi, Sorry for the late reply, have not had access to the forums. As Tim has said, l...

Re: Reception counter hatch, keypad entry, room vs exits

The pin code is mechanical. I think they would argue that they wouldn't use that door in the event of a fire. (I think they would) as there is another route out. When carrying out a fire risk assessment you would would always 'ignore' one fire exit with the mindset that if a fire exit is compromise...
