Thats great news Jack,

I think it will really help a lot of people who are working or implementing 18001 and 14001.

Oh heck, and I voted no! mainly cos I have enough bother with it all Monday to Friday at work, darned audits.

Oh well, probably a good idea I guess.

Jack, may as well include Investors in People in the same section if anyone has specific information to give or get.

I didn't bother to vote because as a fairly casual forum user the outcome doesn't really affect me that much.

However now that we have 27 sub-sections to browse, could the software support a "Display all new posts since last visit" button. Several forums I visit allow this and it would be really useful for those of us with a more catholic interest in H&S matters. Maybe it's already available and I'm just not looking in the right place. It wouldn't be the first time!

Personally I'd have 2 sections 'on-topic' & 'off-topic' but I fully understand why others think differently.

recommended reading - not for the faint hearted !

If anyone is seriously into finding out about ISO 14000, I can recommend a book that I use as a reference work

- "ISO - 14000 - Environmental Management Standards - Engineering and Financial Aspects", by Alan S. Morris.

ISBN - 0 470-85128-7.

It is not for the real beginner, there are lots of mathematical equations for use in assessing various solutions to problems, but is a really solid and essential work to read if you are the sole Environmental Competent Person on your site.

For anyone studying hazard management, then I would recommend - "HAZOP and HAZAN" by Trevor Kletz.

ISBN - 0 - 85295 - 421 - 2.

A full and reasonably easy read, giving an insight into the principles involved for hazard identification and assessments.

Hope this may help some of the site users.
