ISO Certification

Hi all,
We have ISO9001, ISO14001 & ISO45001 and currently use BSI as our accreditation body. Is anyone else using a different body, I am finding that BSI have not quite come up to expectations and was wondering if there were any recommendations out there.

ta,

Re: Fogging and COVID-19

Have a look at your chemical suppliers website, you should be guided by what they say. It will be a start for you anyway.

Re: Covid-19 temperature testing of employees

Hi Dave, I agree, I am recording all our guys temperatures, including contractors we have on site daily. I have their average temperature worked and set up a spreadsheet with conditional formatting so that if a temperature is entered and it is a full degree above the average it flags it up to me and...

Re: Covid-19 temperature testing of employees

Hi Stephen, To be honest, I looked for this when we set up our testing procedure. It seems to be that the digital forehead thermometers are normally associated with a non invasive way to measure kids. We are taking temperatures on the forehead in a consistent manner so the test procedure is the same...

Re: Covid-19 temperature testing of employees

Company overkill...… but it does ease the worries of the tester for sure. Safety glasses are standard for our work and the visor is a bit of reassurance which they appreciate.

Re: Covid-19 temperature testing of employees

I isolate them for 15mins, we have guys walking and arriving by bike etc. so yes, a false reading is a possibility. We use a different person to do the retest and even a different thermometer. It is either the GM or MD who does the second test and they make the on the spot decision to send them home...

Re: COVID-19 RIDDOR

What would be classed as "reasonable evidence" that it was caused by exposure at work?

thoughts?
