Re: What client management software do you recommend?

maybe salesforce or something similar would meet your needs so long as the client records are kept up to date.

You could probably put something together using a simple database or even a spreadsheet if you are feeling creative.

Re: Ergonomic Risk Assessment

You could carry out a MaC analysis, there are risk levels depending on weight of box, height of lift compared to user, initial position of box, and number of movements.

the tool is available from the HSE website at

Hope that helps

Re: Welding COSHH Assessments

You'll need to have the airborn concentration measured to determine the level of risk. There are WELs for some of it, and now all welding fume is considered a carcinogen, the reasonably falls out of SFAIRP so you just have to lower exposure as far as you can, containment (put it in a seperate room),...

Re: Welding fume and all things LEV and RPE
