Re: Annual extinguisher maintenance

I'm just bringing this one back from the past! Does anyone have a checklist of what needs to be done by the 'competent' person on an annual inspection of extinguishers. I've been asked the question can I carry out the annual inspection and maintenance. I have a NEBOSH Fire Certificate but no trainin...

Re: Audible alarm interlocks????

That's a brilliant analogy. Thanks Berni. I'm puling a team of relevant people together this afternoon to discuss the issue and also carrying out a walk around of the factory to identify if we have the same situation anywhere else.

Re: Audible alarm interlocks????

My thoughts exactly Paul! I'm a bit baffled by how we came to that situation in the first place. Is it something you've come across before?

Re: Production Line Risk Assessment

Don't overlook that you need to communicate the significant findings. Not necessarily the full document. The risk assessment process should involve the operators and other relevant people with relevant experience and knowledge on whatever is being risk assessed. I pull together a risk assessment tea...

Re: Production Line Risk Assessment

I prefer the approach of a risk assessment for individual tasks. My reasoning behind this is if you have someone new to the business they can then consider the significant findings from one task at a time as they learn. If you have one massive risk assessment findings document from a whole productio...

Audible alarm interlocks????

I've come across a situation today whereby a piece of equipment has an interlocked gate fitted to prevent access to dangerous moving parts. So far so good. I have discovered also that the interlock does not power down the machine but sounds an audible alarm. This isn't something I've come across bef...

Re: Volunteer H&S Positions

I've had a response through the FB group to this one but unfortunately it wouldn't work for us, so I am still on the look out for someone to take advantage of this potential opportunity!

Volunteer H&S Positions

What is people's experience of voluntary H&S positions. I have heard people vent their frustrations at not being able to get experience and I may be in a position to offer a volunteer position to someone and I need to put the case to my manager and also ensure that the business understands the respo...

Re: Is This Considered a LTI?

If the two people involved only come across each other in the workplace then I'd say it is very much a LTI. Has there been previous between them? Has there been an opportunity to have them work on different tasks which would mean they weren't exposed to each other? It's an interesting one but for me...

Re: Work at Height query

To get a bit of my personal perspective on this, a belt may be acceptable in a situation whereby the equipment is used to prevent the user reaching the danger zone, however I personally wouldn't see that a belt would be suitable if using as fall arrest.

Re: Snapped Achilles - RIDDOR?

I know this is an age old response to Riddor enquiries but you have nothing to lose by reporting it if you are unsure.
