Re: Fire Prevention Plan - Water-gate Barrier

I am afraid I won't be of much help as, although I have experience of flood protection, I have never prepared a fire prevention plan for the EA such as this. Can I ask you why this is required? I am asking as I hope I haven't missed something!! Is your address in a sensitive environment (SSSSI?) or...

Fire Prevention Plan - Water-gate Barrier

Hi all, This is going to cross the Environmental and Fire areas of expertise I would imagine. We are currently in the process of putting together our Fire Prevention Plan to submit to the EA. We are working with a consultancy who have proposed using a Water-gate Barrier to control fire water run off...

Re: Health Surveillance vs GP question

I've had a similar incident through our audiometric testing. Employee was referred to GP by the Occupational Hygienist last year but the employee didn't go. The OH said at this years testing that there isn't much more they/we could do other than recommend they visit their GP and follow up the refera...

Re: Evacuator Fire Alarm

I would agree with Messy in that the description of the unit says they are only Suitable for construction sites, temporary spaces, camp sites, events and markets etc This to me says they are only to be used in areas that will only be inhabited on a temporary basis. Construction site would be dismant...

Re: COVID-19: COVID-19: UPDATED REPORTING GUIDANCE FOR EMPLOYERS

I disagree with how you are interpreting point 2. For me it is anyone who routinely comes into contact with potential COVID-19 in their day to day work, such as nurses, doctors, etc. and the high likelihood is they caught it at work. Otherwise companies at the moment would be reporting COVID-19 case...

Re: SO I HAVE A NEW H&S/SHEQ JOB - what should be my priority for the first 90/100days ? what would you do?

I completely echo what Blackstone has said.

Talk to the people and learn the jobs that way.
Then when you do have to review procedures you can see where things don't marry up and question appropriately.

Re: Electronic SSW Signing

Doing the whole thing paperless.

They'd come in and have something like a tablet with the SSWs on.
They'd read through, answer questions, and sign off at the end.

Electronic SSW Signing

Good afternoon everyone,

Currently when training out new/updated SSWs it is all done with paper printouts and sign off sheets that then need scanning back in to be save to our systems.

Can anyone recommend an electronic system that would be able to do this?

Thanks in advance!

Re: RIDDOR Reporting and COVID

I agree with Blackstone. Unless you are at risk of being exposed to COVID-19 due to your employment, doctor/nurse/lab tech/etc. it would not need reporting if you contracting the disease from a colleague.

Re: COVID UK giv QR code contact tracing app- anyone know if this can be used/ is applicable to construction site & offi

We have both our own system and I decided to set up the QR codes for both of our sites. If people want to use the app, they are more than welcome to. But they would still need to put their details in our system.
