Re: COVID 19 - HSE Spot Check Call

Hi, I had one yesterday as well. I was a bit suspicious at first as well, expecting a scam / sales type of call but the questions didn't pose any threat or want anything untoward so i went with it. The HSE did post an update at the beginning of the pandemic informing that they would be using more re...

Re: Online Course Suggestion

I have tried to enroll with Middlesbrough for the Mental Health course today but received an email back saying they dont receive Adult Education funding for learners from my location (NorthWest) so I cant enroll.

Quite disappointing really, was looking forward to that course.

Re: Fire door adaptation

Its not directly related to the fire door above but shows how specialised the needs of such units are. I dont claim to have any direct knowledge on the subject but one of my previous employers manufactured floorcoverings that were used by the healthcare providers. A full range of flooring was design...

It has a legislation register function as well as the usual incident reporting and contractor control. We dont use the auditor module yet, thats for later this year. No co...

Morning everyone, having an issue here regarding stepladders. More specifically repairs, a pair of aluminium steps was damaged and the warehouse handyman has repaired the crack with a steel plate riveted on.

Re: Hazards of using dry powder extinguisher?

Hi, I have received a response back from the training company. I haven't asked for permission to publish the response so I will paraphrase: It basically make apologies for a misunderstanding, the trainer had been discussing dry powder extinguishers and their respiratory effects with a safety manager...

Re: Hazards of using dry powder extinguisher?

Hi, thanks WB and Messy for your replies. That certainly confirms my own knowledge and the research I have done. As you say, the closest I can get is a well known talcum powder manufacturer being sued for apparently causing cancer in a woman who had applied it to her skin every day for many many yea...

Hazards of using dry powder extinguisher?

Hi everyone, Some of our staff recently completed a fire marshall and fire extinguisher course and the feedback I am getting from the attendees is concerning. They are saying that dry powder extinguishers cause cancer! Now I wasn't in the training myself so I couldn't challenge the trainer but I hav...
