Re: NEBOSH refresher training

You have to realise there is a conceptual difference between IOSH and NEBOSH courses. The IOSH is designed to be at a level where delegates are not advancing their knowledge. Think of it like FAW Training, every 3 years the same people do a refresher to maintain their skills. NEBOSH courses are more...

Re: Minor Gas Leaks in Very large Buildings

Interesting quandary, I can understand Messy's problem but also witsd's stance. I think the answer lies in what the circumstances are, the layout of the building, where the smell is and so forth. For example, is the smell anywhere that there is an appliance or a pipeline? Is it known/confirmed as a ...

Re: Amber Construction Services Ltd v The Health and Safety Executive: 3201454/2019

So a bit of a jurisdiction Faux Pa by the HSE, in particular Sarah Elizabeth Robinson, the Inspector who issued the notices. It's a pity that we don't know exactly what the notices were in respect of; it appears that the legal argument was in regards to the property being residential, not a workplac...

Re: Another fire risk assessor prosecuted

Interesting that it says insufficient emergency lighting. I've just been to three properties who have recently had building work done and as part of the process, new lighting was installed, but in each case i've come along and said the emergency lighting in insufficient. Actally, in all three prope...

Good info then, but yet again we have a situation where important information is withheld because it's in a "paid for" publication. :twisted:

Re: Petrol Stations and EV Charging

I'm not so sure about the Blue Book, I'd start by looking at DSEAR 2002. My first reaction on reading your post was 'Hang about, who installed the Charging Point? If they were a competent electrician they should know about installing electrics in DSEAR/ATEX zones....' Not having an EV myself, not an...

Re: Another fire risk assessor prosecuted

Well I submitted a FOI request but it didn't really give me much. There is a little bit more info available via the NFCC Website http://www.cfoa.org.uk/11823?pv=view&id=2365321 Just put the Post Code S1 4FU in the relevant search box. It gives you the Enforcement and the Prohibition Notice details. ...

Re: CPD Evidence

Keith A lot of people worry about IOSH CPD, but at the moment (and I say that only because of the membership review that is currently taking place) it's not as onerous as many think. Reading magazine articles/topics from IOSH magazine and others, reading books on safety subjects, listening/watching ...

Re: Flats above shops

I can give you a steer towards the thinking of a Fire Officer about 4-5 years ago when a client of mine had a similar property. It was an old late 1800s/early 1900s premises, comprising a basement, with ground floor shop and a 1 bed flat above. Bare floor boards between the basement and shop, i.e. o...
