Re: Working at Height Risk Assessment

It places more emphasis on the work at height task. you need to consider the W@H hierarchy of controls AVOID-PREVENT- REDUCE / MINIMISE.

Re: Ladders

Yes 3 point contact is important but this can be achieved with the correct equipment still using the ladder. Also an important factor to consider is the duration of the task. A suitable risk assessment and some basic controls might determine the use of the ladder safely. The youtube video link provi...

Re: Incident rate

It doesn't necessarily indicate better "safety results". It simply shows a very slight improvement in number of incidents Already taking into account the number of hrs worked. So, in fact you might have had more incidents than on the previous year but as you worked more hrs it shows a decl...

Re: Composite Wall Panels

Lovely place for mice to live in too when they find their way into the panel. I once had to get rid off a panel with over 30 hairy friends :) So watch out for that too

Re: Composite Wall Panels

I'm sure I have something from when I used to work in the food industry. I will have a look tomorrow. Do you know what time these panels are? Polyestarine, rock wool etc that should be considered in the FRA as certainly polyestarine would be a lot more combustible. If it is a freezer, 25 yrs, I woul...

Re: RIDDOR or not?

I actually disagree with previous posts. I think this injury IS reportable as an over 7 day injury regardless of the old fracture. It seems that it is connected with work as it was a work vehicle. If the fracture had been caused on this particular event, then it would have been a major injury, howev...
