Re: NCRQ First Assignment

Well done Safe&Sound.

I have literally just submitted my first assignment and am now (im)patiently waiting for the result to come in.

Fingers crossed

Re: Handrail Height

Siblo,

I'd agree with the 1100 mm and it is achievable with 30 mm tube and still have <470 mm gap if you use 150 mm kick boards at the bottomm.

1100 mm
- ( 2 x 30 mm) tubes
- 150 mm kick board
= 890 /2 = 445 mm gaps.

Piper Alpha 30th Anniversary

30 years ago today 167 men lost their lives during the biggest offshore disaster ever seen anywhere in the world. I can clearly remember discovering the story on a cross channel ferry on the way home from a school trip to France. Being from Aberdeen many of us on the trip had relatives working offsh...

Re: Rope Access rigging. IRATA rope hauling methods

I think you've pretty much answered your own question to be honest. Don't quote me on this as I'm no rope access expert but I'm pretty sure IRATA only deal with the access part of the task. Anything else will be covered by specific job competence, i.e. riggers will have certification (OPITO, NVQ etc...

Re: Getting a start in HSE.... (ideally back offshore)

DB7 I know it's not what you want to hear but the chances of obtaining even an entry level position offshore is very slim, not impossible but not far from it. I'm not a recruiter but I do work alongside a recruitment team who fill both temporary and permanent positions in Oil and Gas in the UK and o...

Re: Current Career

Having had Dave as a supervisor previously I would always tend to take heed of any advice coming from him. I would question the L&D adviser over the IOSH instructor statement. There is no requirement to be registered with BSC to deliver IOSH training. From the IOSH website All trainers who wish to d...

Re: train the trainer-MEWP/Work at Height

Juliet, I'd be very careful there as training someone to deliver toolbox talks is very different from training someone to train an operator on MEWP's or any other piece of work equipment. IPAF Instructor training is 5 days. The trainee instructor must have 3 years + operator experience along with va...

Re: Abrasive Wheels

Si,

Have a word with your wheel supplier.

Some offer free training if you are buying in large enough quantities.

Re: Work/Career: I have complete lack of motivation ? don't feel empowered

T I feel your pain. I am in pretty much the exact same situation. Lots to do but zero motivation to get it done. The team which once had 4 full time members is now just me. I can't think of anything to say that is motivational for you but before you decide if it's time for a fresh start maybe a meet...
