Covid-19 Social Distancing...1 or 2 metre..

Hi all, Just a quick question, does Public Health England, HSE and UK Government guidance over rule the World Health Organization? It's confusing that WHO guidance is 1 metre social distance but PHE, HSE and Government guidance is 2 metres. My thought was PHE, HSE and Government guidance overrules W...

I have questioned their thoughts behind this and its because the other sites throughout Europe are doing the same. I need some advice as I don't th...

Re: Church and Historical Buildings FRA

Thank you Berni, If anything I think I may have been too lenient with them but given the information I collected on the day I stand by my actions set. Exactly what I thought, the church has recently had new electrical installations in place with electric heaters over head and new lights on each pill...

Church and Historical Buildings FRA

Hi all, I've recently carried out a Fire Risk Assessment on a small Saxon aged open plan church and my report has been met with an almighty hit back by the church organisers as the building is listed and my controls apparently cannot be implemented. Am I missing something or does the RRFSO still app...

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...
