Not to pick on the guy, but....

I just came across a fire presentation that I really hope isn't being presented to anyone in this country. https://hseprofessionalspakistan.blogspot.com/2019/08/fire-prevention-and-protection.html?m=1 I appreciate that English is not the guys first language, and he may very well know what hes talkin...

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...

Re: Dorgards

Strange, I thought I had posted a response to this earlier. Likewise I was a bit confused as 54-2 and 54-4 cover different things to what appeared to be suggested and in fact i could find no section of EN 54 that covered what was being suggested. I wrote that perhaps you should ask for clarification...

Re: Computer says no!

Not sure what you mean, but i'm guessing you are saying the risk cannot be eliminated or controlled and therefore you cant justify the activity going ahead?

Re: NEBOSH refresher training

I don't think refresher training would be needed, as people have said before, it is more about CPD. If you have a truly active H&S role, you will be constantly learning and reviewing and investigating and in the process of this you will be getting exposed to all the things you need. If you are in a ...

Re: No. of employees

IMO yes, and even if it was no, you are bringing in temporary workers for a busy period who are going to be inexperienced and I bet your 2 full time members do not have the time to properly train and supervise them and thefore written procedures for risk assessments, safe systems of work, emergency ...

Re: First Aid at Work Training – A Notice For Employers And Training Providers

I think you have to look at the severity and nature of the injuries that COULD happen. I've been qualified as a lifeguard and had to go through 1st aid training every month because you cant afford to get it wrong if someone is drowning, yet in the 4 years I managed leisure centres I never once had t...

"Self Employed" Workers

One of those days where there are too many things rattling around inside my head to think clearly. Some companies use people who are "self employed" to form their workforce. Now, these people work only for one company and no others and you may not find any worker who is actually employed by the comp...

Re: Another fire risk assessor prosecuted

Interesting that it says insufficient emergency lighting. I've just been to three properties who have recently had building work done and as part of the process, new lighting was installed, but in each case i've come along and said the emergency lighting in insufficient. Actally, in all three proper...

Re: Petrol Stations and EV Charging

From what I can see it is, at least in part, in the blue book. Section 9.5.11 I finally spoke with a company that installs points and they directed me to the blue book as well, though they also sent me some information over on hazardous zones and they do have fixed distances it would seem, though th...
