Re: How do you share the "consequence" message.

Thanks Willpool - yes we tried that. We had a new start to HSE who was a rigger in a previous life and lost all the fingers off his right hand. When he joined the team I collared him to do a meet and greet - so everyone would hear his story. He stood at the door and shook everyones hand as they arri...

Re: How do you share the "consequence" message.

Thank.s Alexis. Doesnt seem to be an easy answer. I have in the past used the local Police service to come in and do a talk - usually in the run up to winter about danger on the roads - importance of clearing the car, checking lights etc. This is usually well received as the officers will usually ha...

Re: Generic Risk Assessments - again

Generic risj assessments are fine in my view - if they take in the routines - enter building, climb stairs etc, Get tool kit to work site. But depending on the trade - electrical, work at height etc. - before work the dynamic risk assessment must be completed and signed off by a supervisor before wo...

How do you share the "consequence" message.

Hello - I haven't been active on this site recently but look in now and again. A question if I may? In the oil industry - we want to share all "learnings" after an accident / incident within the industry but a lot of these "learnings" are not fully released due to legal complications or company poli...

Re: Work at height rescue plans

It needs to be remembered that a rescue plan requires to be in place that is reasonably practicable. But if for any reason that plan fails then it is prudent to call on emergency services. Also prudent to alert local emergency services of the works involved and the access points in case they are nee...

Re: Stop and Think systems/ whats the worst that can happen/ LAst minute RA's

Depends on the potential dangers but this is where the "dynamic" risk assessment and Human Factors comes in. The people who use this most effectively are our emergency services - police chasing criminals up a back alley or firefighters going into a blazing building. But to make it work - they need g...

Re: Confined space rescue plan

The rescue plan as already said will depend on the actual work area and hazards involved and should be written by - or with the assistance of the competent team that will carry out the rescue. As this could be one of the most hazardous activities - more info would help - it should ensure all eventua...

Re: Asbestos comms

Why not ask your asbestos contractor - or their HSE team to either deliver or supply all the information you need to share with your workforce? They are the experts and can supply the answers to any questions. I have a concern that only answering individuals as they request could lead to other quest...

Re: Risk Assessments (MHE)

I agree with Coldrop

But I would also get some operators trained in how to do Risk assessment and get them to risk assess their areas of operation. As well as raising the risk awareness you will get better assessments and a lot more done.

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...
