Re: Desert Island Discs - Sabrina Cohen-Hatton, firefighter

Nice to have an inside perspective from messy. ;)

Quite a revealing Bio they give in the Article.

I like her 3 Point Test.
The same points are relevant to many roles in life:
What do I want to achieve?
What do I expect to happen as a result?
Do benefits outweigh risks?

Re: Fri 11.10.19

Morning All :wave:
Bit blustery around the East Midlands, but seemingly it's 15C outside, so not a bad temp for October.
Have an enjoyable and safe weekend, whatever you're up to.
I've got more work out in the garden, weather permitting. .salut

Re: WAH Work Positioning Lines

Hi Keith As I understand it, it's a line, or more, that is/are set to a particular position, so the worker can do their job, whether it be hanging over the edge of a structure, working on a bridge structure etc So it's a type of 'Fall Restraint', but it's not just generic, i.e. simply being too shor...

Re: Air accident error prediction

An interesting little piece. Most people wouldn't consider that aircraft usually don't have 'keys', other than to lock the door, so once it's open, anyone can take it. Military Fast Jet types usually don't have any keys to secure them. It brought to mind a tale of a small error ..... Many decades ag...

Re: Glass Blowing Risks & Control Measures

I share witsd's cynicism regarding 'Arty' workplaces. There is certainly a need to tidy the floor a bit, although the floor didn't look as bad as I was expecting having ready your narrative ;) . There is very much a certain choreography in the way such places work, but that can easily lead to a fals...

Re: Machine safety — Safety distances

Ummm.... interesting topic. What sort of Mixer are we speaking of? The phrase concrete not being able to flow into the mixer has confused me, surely it's dry ingredients and water going in and concrete is the product being discharged? .scratch If it's something like this you're referring to, I can s...

Re: Ethical dilemma.

I totally agree with stephen's sentiments. I am in the fortunate position of working for myself, but also having sufficient financial independence that I do not have to accept work from clients who are not really interested. I have walked away from bad clients with whom I could not work because of t...

Saturday 5th Oct 2019

Good Morning everyone..... :wave: After an eventful day yesterday, when what would previously have taken me under 10 minutes at the Doctor's Surgery took over 30, because of their 'new efficient systems', I am seriously thinking of either joining their Patient Participation Group to be a contact for...

Re: H&S Annual report

I would say it depends entirely on the recipient(s) of the report. Is this a private or family owned company, or does it have shareholders? Will it be publicly available or just for a limited distribution? Are you thinking of a page or a half dozen pages? Will it be stand-alone document or included ...

Re: Another fire risk assessor prosecuted

I'm wondering if an FoI request might reveal more. The HSE have their published details of Notices given out, why shouldn't the FRS do the same.... Umm something to ponder on today, I might try it....

Re: Another fire risk assessor prosecuted

The individual named on the reports, David Thompson of Toftwood Health & Safety Solutions, no longer has an active business website. He does have a LinkedIn profile, and from that I traced him to a profile on the OSHCR , which isn't very well completed. Nowhere mentions Fire Safety as one of his ski...

Re: Safety of Petrol storage

Surely The Petroleum (Consolidation) Regulations 2014 are applicable to storage whether public access or not? As I read them, they are applicable to a workplace used, or intended for use, for the dispensing of petrol; and the definition of dispensing simply means from 'storage tank' to 'tank feeding...
