Fire Consultant near Birmingham?

I'm after a favour. I'm looking for (or at least someone I know is looking for) someone to carry out a fire risk assessment for a school near Birmingham. Please drop me a PM if you know someone or are someone!

Fire Extinguisher Commissioning

I was asked a question yesterday that I wasn't sure on the answer to and the internet so far hasn't enlightened me! When you buy a brand new fire extinguisher (from a reputable supplier ofcourse!) does it need any sort of commissioning before it is put into service?

Re: Daily life of a H&S Professional

One of the aspects of working in H&S that appeals to me is that no two days are the same. I work for a business that work in the building maintenance / installations industry. I do have some regular duties such as preparing RAMS for clients, carrying out audits of our site engineers etc. Even within...

Re: Laptop stands

Really good HSE guidance here: https://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/ck1.pdf

The only thing to bear in mind with this is that it is general guidance and individuals may have some variation in positions that they find most comfortable.

Re: Tank & Pipework Inspections

This is a tough one. Not an area I have expertise in but with the material of the pipes in question and the nature of the materials what are the likely risks?
