Re: Seeing a RIDDOR report

Hello, They don't have to share the RIDDOR report with you. What you could ask for is a copy of the incident report and investigation and even that, I don't believe they have to share that with you. Perhaps if this was requested by the health and safety rep, then it would be easier to obtain it. The...

Re: FLT charging area

Hi,
I don't think you will find anything as specific as that. It will all be based on your first aid needs assessment. I suppose you will take into consideration how big the area is and how many FLT's you have as well as the process for replanishing batteries etc.

Re: developing a OH&S strategy and action plan - techniques/ where to start/ process for best results

Start by finding out where you are and where you would like / need to be. Conduct a gap analysis - could be against 45001. Look at the highest HSE risks for your company and think about the road to get where you envisage the company in the future. Write a plan that is ambitious but achievable and ha...

Re: COVID UK giv QR code contact tracing app- anyone know if this can be used/ is applicable to construction site & offi

My understanding, and from the information available, offices and constructions sites are not required to display a poster. This is aimed at places with public access such as restaurants, gyms etc. In terms of encouraging colleagues to download and use, I think it is something we should do.

Re: LTI or Not?

Hello :) I don't think it would be diminishing the company's H&S performance. Incident rates are not the only way to measure H&S performance. I know it is very annoying to put it in your figures knowing what you know. I personally don't get too hung up on things like this. I would use the op...

Re: LTI or Not?

I would consider it an LTI / RIDDOR if the work activities the person carries out are likely to have contributed to the condition worsening. I would investigate the complaint and make an assessment based on that.

Re: H&S Rules - A Temporary Relaxation

yes, carrying out a risk assessment and implementing the necessary measures to ensure people are safe (including instructions for all) is the right approach, now, with regards to disclaimers etc, these, by and large, are not worth the paper they are written on.

Re: RIDDOR

Hi, technically if he did work on the Saturday (or was able to performing his normal duties) then you would not need to report this under RIDDOR. I would wait until he resumes to work on the Monday and see how he is and confirm that he can actually work as per normal, based on this and on the inform...

Re: RIDDOR - Question ( I think i know teh answer but)

Good afternoon,

I believe that if you are not able to carry out your normal range of duties, even if you are brought in "on light work" those days will still account towards your 7 days and therefore would still be RIDDOR reportable.

Re: Change management process/ Procedure help?

Seems what you need is a review of risk assessments.... I would get the relevant managers doing this review with their own teams therefore your point in Senior Managers leading by example.
