Re: Training for Trustees

Thanks ddlh

I have to say that I arranged for our senior leadership team to complete the SfEaD and they found it extremely helpful, however they are more hands on and therefore likely to understand the benefits.

Re: Training for Trustees

Thanks Andy

I have since found 'roles and responsibilities' training through ROSPA that may be suitable! 2 x 90 minute online sessions over a 48hr period - has anyone had experience of this course?

Training for Trustees

Hi All I am looking for a training course in H&S responsibilities awareness for Trustees of a large charity. The IOSH Safety for Executives and Directors would cover the majority of the information required BUT the Trustees are non-operational (meaning some of it would not be appropriate) and also v...

CMIOSH

Is CMIOSH overused and over relied on to validate knowledge?

Does it give a false sense of security around practical application of the legislation?

Just wondered what other Safety professionals views were in the subject.

'Let Them Fall' policy

Right, here is the conundrum: Resident in a health care setting falls and the member of staff lets them, as they believe that this is the correct thing to do. I have an opinion on this but wanted to see what your organisation feels (if applicable) or your professional opinion is on this subject .......

Computer says no!

Have you ever gone through the full process of risk assessment, starting with critical analysis outlining your justification and then got to the end of the process and said; nope not happening!?

If so, how did you document that?

Sorry, I like to challenge the knowledge with random questions!

Re: NEBOSH refresher training

In short this is for Facilities Managers who have opted for NEBOSH in a previous life and wish to keep their knowledge / CPD up to date but do not necessarily use H&S on a daily basis 'as such' - it looks like I will be going down the internal training / refresher to address this properly, so that c...

No. of employees

We all know the rule for 5 or more employees BUT ........ and here comes the possibly daft question!

Does this apply when you have 2 full time staff and then take on say 4 seasonal staff through the winter only?
