Re: Hand Stackers

Hi Stephen, The standard pallet sizes are euro 12x8 and regular 12x10, but these adopted sizes are just to simplify logistics for hauliers. I used to order close to 60 different sizes of pallet depending on the products being produced, there were probably 6 or 8 sizes we used lot of but our pallet s...

Smoking & Vaping

Hi Guys,

I know this has been covered but I'm damned if I can find it.

Also, has anyone done a new/recent policy or guidance on vaping in the workplace.

Thanks Friday People

Re: American FLT Licence

Thanks for the complete and extensive reply Berni, My initial thoughts were that OSHA are quite rigorous so they're probably OK. I sent the 2 guys of to get their "licences", they came back with slips of paper they had printed off following completion of their ONLINE training. It was a "blended" tra...

Re: Paint Spray Booth

Hi SS I have numerous MSDS about chromate's and info from HSE, unfortunately none of them list downstream hazards. once panels are sanded and finished what do we do with the dusts? I assume dusts will be just as hazardous as the parent product, at least that's what the paint supplier is telling me. ...

Paint Spray Booth

Hi Guys,

Anyone out there who works with or around a Paint Spray Booth?

Been improving our air quality side now looking at paints that are being used.

Anyone use Strontium Chromate? Looking at disposal of waste/ sanding dusts etc

Possibly paper suits, booth filters etc..

Thanks

Siblo
