Safety in Care Awards

Hi All Just to let you know that the 'Care in Safety Awards' nominations are open and they are NOT restricted to NASHiCS (National Association for Safety and Health in Care Services) members; so why not nominate someone who has made a difference in the care sector around safety in recognition of the...

Re: Asbestos advice needed

Briefly, it depends on the finer detail. Some of that sounds almost as expensive as what you have said the removal costs are estimated at, and they wouldn't solve the actual problem, whilst causing you new ones. What sort of Debris is it, loose insulation or dust from old sheeting? Could it be coat...

Asbestos advice needed

Long post alert: We have a live 24/7 residential property with asbestos debris within the roof void. The plan was to remove the debris but there is a projected cost of around £500k (the building is likely to be replaced within 8 or so years). The suggestion has been to seal the area off and move the...

Eye tests

Okay, we must recompense employees for eye tests where they are DSE users but what about drivers?

Thanks

Re: RPE

Thx both, I am following this up with the employee first as I am now of the belief that it is they who have specified a mask! Letter is even more vague than I alluded to above!

Re: Consultancy

Hi Andyblue Thanks for the feedback. Looking at starting small and expanding progressively. Supporting a soft services company at present, using it as a bit of a tooth sharpener for now as I need to cut my teeth with minimal risk! Would live to get a sneak preview of your initial T's and C's if you ...

RPE

Interested in people's view on this: Doctor writes a letter and states that due to unidentified allergies, the employee should wear a facemask but does not state which (particulate or vapour/gas), even though the diagnosis is for a skin condition that is not documented as being affected by any vapou...

Consultancy

Hi All

I am after a generic set of terms and conditions for consulting and wondered what, if anything you all used; have you generated your own or used a generator online or used a solicitor etc?

If anyone has an example, that would be great!!!!

Thx all

K
