Re: safety committee meetings

We have furloughed a good number of our staff and 95% of our office staff are now working from home. What we have done is to put the committee on hold for the time being and not actually hold formal meetings. With so few people on site I am spending more time walking the floor and talking (at a safe...

Re: How many of us are still at our work locations?

Still at work but struggling to understand why. The problem we have is that some of our biggest customers still want products developing, updating and manufactured despite the stores we would install into are all closed.

Re: Monday - 13 January 2020

Morning one and all Chilly morning but i woke up so that is a bonus. I have been in the office since 0630 and only had one stupid phone call. Apparently it is a safety issue that a bike is chained to a fence, no escape routes are blocked, emergency access to the site is perfectly clear, but it is so...

Re: Daily life of a H&S Professional

Post Script

The other day I sent a reviewed H&S policy to my MD expecting him to agree with what I have written and and send it back. What I did not expect was for him to actively amend and improve the document. I am over the moon!

Re: Daily life of a H&S Professional

I think for most of us our daily work life is often summed up in one word - frustrating! I am the H&S Manager for a point of sale manufacturer in the East Midlands. I am a team of one reporting to the Head of Manufacturing and to the MD. Over the last year or so my role has expanded to include worki...

Re: Audit documentation

For me, if there is a review of the document and no changes are made then I expect to see evidence of this review but no change to the document issue number. If the review results in changes, other than a font type or size, then the document issue number should change and the document re-signed. As ...

More Frustration

AAAGGGGGHHHHH Just had a visit from a manager to tell me that there is water on the floor, no signs, nobody has cleared it up, nothing. Not quite sure why he could't clear the little bit of water that was there and put a caution triangle in place to warn people or ask the team leaders working in the...

Re: Use of IPAd and stylus - and Notes APP for taking notes and converting straight to Text

Fountain pen, Rhodia dot pads and a good old HB Pencil are my tools of choice

I asked my intern if he wanted a new pad for a recent trip to Poland and he looked at me like I was an alien! He uses his iPad for notes, photos and goodness knows what else!

It's Monday and as we fast approach lunchtime, it has already been one of those days.

Work for a consultancy company. You dont have to setup on your own.
Now that is a good idea, thank you.

Honestly Berni, it is becoming more and more attractive!
But it's really hard work if you're doing it for yourself; I'm lucky enough to have a certain amount of financial independence ;) .
The hard work I enjoy, the lack of money is not quite so enticing!
