Re: HSG and INGD's no longer free?

It would seem the specific one I am looking for is no longer available and whilst looking for it I kept ending up in the book publications section which only showed hard copies.

HSG and INGD's no longer free?

Have the HSE decided to do away with providing documents for free as downloads? Looking around their website there only seems to be hard copy availablity and varying prices and all the options to download have gone. Anyone know where they might be found, and no, glasgow library isnt an option becaus...

Re: COSHH Query

Agree with everything you've sid but the point I was making is that the supplier is saying they dont NEED assessments done. All they need is the SDS online and they can forget about it, they are covered. Being, if there claims are true, a supplier and trainer to some of the biggest food companies in...

Re: COSHH Query

Hang on buddy whilst your face melts, i just have to log in to the portal, hey bob, you know what the password is? no? sorry dave... dave?

COSHH Query

Just been dealing with a franchise affiliated with an international fast food chain. I asked about sds sheets or assessments and was told they don't need them because the parent company has them all (sds) on an online portal and their chemicals are not hazardous (under ideal conditions). How do peop...

Looking for Fire video clips

Putting together a new training package for general fire awareness and fire marshal courses and i'm hunting around for good video clips to use. Any suggestions? Ones related to the motor industry would be particularly useful, also, anything like a photo copier or computer server going up, anything w...

Re: Hired Equipment & Inspection Evidence

The best thing to do is to ask for the inspection and servicing documentation. A sticker is useful, but anyone can write on the sticker to say that it has been done. Better to get a copy of the insurance report and servicing paper work. Thats likely to be two independant sources, one highlighting th...

Re: Computer says no!

I've never found a situation where safe working could not be achieved. The only issue I have had is with nonsense risk ratings, you know the thing, L x S = R etc... We used yp have a consultant that determined safe working was only achievable when the R was below a certain figure. I didnt always ag...

Re: Ladder fun

Good training photo that one. As Berni says, it can't slip anywhere, but if you asked 10 people if they thought it was acceptable, 9 would say no simply because it doesn't look right. In the work place, you try explaining its safe to some one who doesnt understand, but, if you force the issue and le...

Re: Welders Air Fed Respirators

If its an air fed mask then the air quality needs to be tested at least every 3 months. In regards to the units alone comments. Are you talking about the mobile extraction units? they wont be sufficient to use alone as they won't remove 100% of the fumes. The person doing the welding will still need...
