Re: NVQ Level 6 Diploma

Hi lead, if you juststarted it you will have a general idea what you have got yourself into. When you are knee dep in case law or scaffolding regulations and it all seems a bit too much, or before then if you want to avoid the stress, ask about specific topics and we'll try to provide assistance.

Re: internal ISO and OHSAS auidt checlklists

Re: Gaining experience

There are some jobs advertised that are really just fishing expeditions, either the recruiter is gauging the availability and wage expectations of H&S people, or they have a shoe in for the job but need to go through the recruitment exercise to tick a box in the organisation's checklist for filling ...

Re: Welding fume and all things LEV and RPE

There is always an LEV solution to at least reduce the airborn concentration of fume, and if you can make it independant of the welders having to do something then so much the better.

Re: M1 safety week reduces collisions by a third

There is also the "Management Effect". When you visibly monitor anything you change it, and if you have intervention too you will change it a lot. Monitoring one road for one week may have reduced the accident rate, but does that mean there was not an increased rate on the other roads people would u...

If you are talking electronics or jewellery, then acetone if fine, don't spray it on, either immerse the parts in the liquid rub the surface of the board with a brush and lift it out, shake off any drops back into the tank and close the lid.

Re: How to be the best H&S professional I can ? - calling all H&S Colleagues

The most important part of being an effective manager is respect for whoever is in front of you. You need these people to trust you even if they don't like you Listen to complaints and do something about them, even if you have to say that after looking at all the options you can't get anything done ...
