Re: External H&S audits during lockdown

Just before Christmas I reviewed a Clients documentation, which I'd written anyway so I had copies of it all, and then had a long WhatsApp call with the Director, who was working from home isolation after having been at her holiday home overseas. When she was back in work, she took me on a video tou...

Re: Hogmanay 2020 Thank goodness!

Happy Hogmanay & New Year to One & All....... No snow around the East Midlands, but the frost was thick enough to look like a snow scene when I finally arose about 8:45! Stayed up quite late last night, and with nothing to get up for particularly this morning, it was a case of waiting for so...

Re: Causation in a case of negligence

Well, one for the Lawyers probably. In this particular situation, kicking the ball, knowing it was likely to hit the person then Yes, but as to the rest of the chain of events.... Negligence requires A Duty , and a Breach of that duty. But, it is necessary to prove not only that the loss (injury) wa...

That's not particularly long. I've seen one that took 10 years.

Re: 4 year until charges were brought.....

From what I have picked up locally, including speaking to someone who worked there, the whole site was a disaster waiting to happen, with a history of planning breaches and a previous accident. It was previously a Pig Farm. Around 20111, there was an "Application for a Lawful Development Certif...

4 year until charges were brought.....

Almost 4 years ago, a few days before Christmas 2016, this incident occurred only a few miles from where I reside. Two very preventable deaths. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leicestershire-38505050 I've been keeping a check every few months on the state of the 2 inquests, which are still adj...

Re: PAS79 - new 1 & 2 versions

Ooooohhhh, how exciting; instead of charging £148 for a single document, they can now charge £125 each for 2 separate ones....

Re: 2kg fire extinguishers

Ahh I see where the discrepancy is between suppliers. Some people think 2Kg DP are the ones they class as Primary sealed, in which case they would be 10 year and return to manufacturer according to the BS table 1. But the BS defines 'Primary Sealed' as the ones you can remove the top from because th...

Re: 2kg fire extinguishers

Which 2Kg? CO2, DP?

Any, All?

There is no 20 year limit. .scratch They can be serviced every 5 or 10 years (type dependant), not once and then scrapped.

Go to Glasgow online Library and read BS 5306-3:2017 - all details there.
