Arc Eye and UV/IR exposure

Afternoon guys and girls. I've been left confused. I always thought that arc eye was caused by the exposure to high levels of UV light emitted when welding. I have been doing some research on our standard PPE for non-welders in areas where welding takes place. The manufacturer of our standard safety...

Re: Talking about Mental Health

I'm definitely going to take a look. It's a really prevalent topic at my current workplace because of the interesting working conditions here at the moment. I will share it with my colleagues too. I'm looking at self funding my mental health first aid training course in the near future to not only e...

Lung Disease Prevention Free Workshop

Just seen these via the HSE Bulletin emails. There is a series of free to attend seminars on prevention of lung disease. I'm looking to attend the Sheffield date if anyone fancies saying hello.

Re: Tuesday 15 May 2018

Morning all, a bright and breezy start to the morning in South Yorkshire. I've more to do today then one pair of hands and my 8 hours a day contract will allow but nothing new there! Have a good day all!

Re: Grenfell Tower door resisted fire 'half as long' as it was meant to

certainly looks shocking on the face of it. It would be interesting to know if the tests were consistent with those required to classify a door as a 30 minute fire door. When I did my Nebosh Fire Certificate at the Fire Service College our tutor went to great lengths to get us to understand that any...

Re: Integrated Management System - Starting from Scratch

Just wanted to post a thanks to those that have contributed to this post. In my current role I have inherited systems that are in need of some serious attention. Because of that and the recent launch of 45001 it has given me the opportunity to bite the bullet and look at the prospect of an integrate...

Re: Riddor and Hospital?

It will almost certainly become a 7 day absence in time. I don't have any further diagnosis or prognosis. I believe I'm right in saying that in the previous version of the regs it was reportable as soon as someone has spent a period of time in hospital and that is no longer the case? The only refere...

Re: COSHH Consultants

Unfortunately I cannot recommend anyone, however in the meantime you could be contacting your suppliers and ensuring you have the latest Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS) in your possession and also that you have a register of the substances. This can start off by simply being the name and type of ...

Re: COSHH Consultants

I'm going to resist the urge to respond to your post with a wholw host of puns Berni!

As Berni says as well as the type of substance you need looking at what do you need them to do? Audit an existing system, create risk assessments, carry out awareness training?

Re: Welfare Vs fire risk management

My initial thought is why would you provide it? How long are employees shifts? Are they allowed to be using phones whilst they are carrying out whatever their work duties are? If not if they ensure their phones are charged before they leave for work in the morning then charging shouldn't be necessary.

Riddor and Hospital?

Hi Guys and girls, I haven't been around for a long while so first of all it's good to be back! I would just like a collective sanity check please. With the last revision to the Riddor regs and the shortening of the specified injuries list did the requirement to report if someone spent more than 214...
