Mutley, Sorry to see you're in this situation, I have also recently joined the "Change Gang" along with over 500 others here in the site at Worcester. I was going to send out a letter but first decided to phone-up the recipients and ask for specific names. Results = 4 responded out of 44 contacted, ...

Getting peoples attention

No not yours obviously :lol: I am trying to identify a simple method to help managers here understand the difference between "interesting & dramatic" and "necessary". Example: The pointed head of a dart was found in a box of leaflets some weeks ago - there was a great "hows-your-father" and subjecti...

Andy, I suppose I better put a line through my original answer of "Question and instructions lacks clarity and is therefore causing high levels of stress to older respondants who can get easily confused". ;) Bernard

Dave,
That's a very generous offer.
However, I am not looking to copy from anyone just to ensure I am "thinking along the right lines". Thank you for your generosity though. Bernard

Thank you for the welcome to Invicta :D . Gladiator - Yes you are correct it is basically a RA limited to 3 hazards and their risks but I've used it as a review exercise for our whole operation then just selected relevant samples for the course project. Stoker, thanks for your tip. It sounds like th...

Phil, Excellant. I've just handed out 2 copies in Polish and 2 in Slovakian and the response was very positive - it was unfortunately a surprise to them all that we should take the trouble to do this. I see it as a courtesy as much as an obligation. Looks to me as if there is a business opportunity ...

Stew, Stehpen & Ashanti, It makes it even more interesting in that I am part of the team managing the closure of this site - to be completed by March 2007. Totally agree with the sentiments expressed. We are not looking to discriminate but to protect people from harm. I am unsure of our rights in th...

Can anyone advise me on this please? We have come across increasing situations where flexi staff don't appear to understand written or verbal instructions issued to them by staff and team leaders. English is not thier native language. While not wishing to deprive these folk of a source of emplyment ...

Data Sheets, etc for Office Laminator

Our general manager has just bought a new desktop laminator from rexel (LP35HS) and merrily told everyone to start using it. This has caused a bit of a stink (yes pun is intended - sorry). Has anyone any info on what type of fumes are generated and the necessary controls. I have published a simple s...

We have mutliple rotating shifts operating 24 x 7 x 365 with the usual mix of experience and personalities. So I was looking for a point of mediation which I've now got from a manufacturer's site.
