Re: Acts and Regulations

Can you be prosecuted for breach of a regulation or is it the HSWA you get prosecuted against? If so what are the penalties? Could you please point me in the direction of applicable info on the internet. In short, the answer is... It depends ...on what happened and how specific the circumstances we...

Re: Time to clear buildings, do a sweep, query

Yet another individual's opinion being touted as 'fact'. Clearly they can't take 10 minutes over it, the place must be broken down into manageable areas, but 60 seconds is ridiculous. I think most Fire safety plans I've seen it specified in, it's been 2 minutes. Although I did see one, when I was ju...

Re: Hips

Briefly, my wife had hers replaced about 4 years ago. Hers was painful and she had lost most of the ability to move the leg outwards, it only went backwards and forwards. The Ball Joint had become more like an elbow or knee in it's range of movement. We used to walk miles at weekends perhaps 10-12 o...

Re: Electric vehicle for a company car

I would say it's an HMRC matter, because they're the ones that control 'Company perks'....

Re: Ireland_'Hopes fading' over missing Coast Guard helicopter crew

Wow! I was first taken aback by an Executive Summary which stretched to 21 page. Few Executive Summaries ever get anywhere near that. When I started reading it realised what a shambles their entire system is. The actual report is 350 pages. For comparison, the Clutha Police Helicopter Crash Report w...

Re: Car Park bollard removal

Morning Penfold As it's a 'Quick Fix' you're looking for, how about fixing some suitable handles to the posts, to enable a better grip and leverage. They may be 15 Kgs or so each, I can't imagine much more, but there will be the 'stickion' to overcome. As people have presumably been lifting them reg...

Re: Risk assessment - how to get it right all the time?

Amazing that people are commenting about 'people reading the risk assessment'. There is no requirement for employees to read a risk assessment. Many more complex risk assessments will likely be totally beyond the comprehension and understanding of the people that most need to be protected. The Risk ...

It's like the Judges scoring on Strictly Come dancing, you know who's going to score low and score high because they are consistent about it.

Couldn't let the day pass all alone, so better late than never.
I'm seriously considering winding up for the week and getting some 'me time' out in the garage on the Minor....
