Re: Compliance

Hi Paul You'll find a lot of what you need on the HSE website, equally, there's a lot of info over in the Main Site Downloads section. If you've not visited the main site yet, click on the logo in the top left. The HSE would have you believe everything is easy as ABC , but that's not exactly true. I...

Re: RAs, procedures and Elec vehicles

Well at least I've learned what you call an 'ICE vehicle' is, having looked it up. :lol: As far as I'm concerned, this is an ICE Vehicle.... snow-cat.jpg Personally, I would not consider EVs for long-haul journeys yet, because I don't believe we have sufficient public infrastructure in place. What's...

Re: RAs, procedures and Elec vehicles

True enough. I was thinking of a dedicated fleet with it's own charging facilities at company locations. I guess you're thinking of more public locations. Good discussion point, though I don't see waiting for charging as being an H&S issue. As to being caught in jams, if it ain't moving, it shouldn'...

Re: Is This Considered a LTI?

I'm imagining an HSE inspector visiting site after a RIDDOR, discovering the violence was consensual and just quietly packing away his wee notebook. When I was in the RAF and serving out in the USA, working alongside the USAF, one or my US colleagues told me about how he had the Police turn up at h...

Re: Halon Extinguishers

This is a bit of an issue, depending on whether it's a business or personal disposal. If it's business, you're going to have to pay for it commercially. Private/personal, then it's for the local authority to take from you, it just depends on where you live and whether it's a County or Unitary Author...

Re: Tuesday 11th December 2018

Hi All Well, things are on the up, I've recovered from my Lurgy and the throat is just about better and able to swallow normally. At my Networking meeting this morning, I realised that in the Village Hall where we meet the door to the Gents (and presumably the Ladies is the same) has a Euro Type loc...

Re: RAs, procedures and Elec vehicles

I don't see it as a specific issue. Running out of battery juice is no different than running out of liquid fuel or gas. Journeys should be planned accordingly. OK, so it's easy to get a 5L can to top up if you run out of petrol/Diesel, but you can't do that for LPG. Be interesting to see what other...

Re: Sunday 9 December

Hope everyone's had a great day at wherever you've been doing. I've been recovering from some sort of viral lurgy that has spoilt my last 3 days by making me feel terrible... but all seems to be nearly back to normal. ;) Didn't help that last Monday I swallowed a bit of Baked Jacket Potato that was ...

Sorry, It's a rollerrink, should have made that clearer.
Ahh, that makes it slightly different then. :lol: Loads of kids on wheels would be a problem.

I think many of my previous comments remain valid, just look to the bigger picture. .salut
