Re: First Aid - Employee Refusal To Go To Hospital

It is also - in my experience- unfortunate that a medic or first aider will take the easy option. When a medic offshore will call an onshore doctor for advice. The onshore doctor in 50/50 cases will to protect themselves will request the person be taken to hospital for check / treatment. Onshore - a...

Re: Changing Industries

Re: Lone Working

Hi - may I suggest that the need for stand alone risk assessment depends on the the actual risk potential? For example - a confined space entry, a work at height task, working with live energy may have fatal consequences so should be stand alone so as there is no confusion. Are you sure that there i...
