Year 20 - issue 1 - 20.09.2021

OCCUPATIONAL HEALTH

Should staff sit or stand?

A prominent safety organisation has confirmed that prolonged sitting is bad for health, but warns against standing all day too. What’s the advice?

FIRE SAFETY

Fire risk assessors feeling the heat

With another prosecution of a fire risk assessor reaching its conclusion, those who offer these services, and their clients, need to step up to meet current expectations. What’s been happening?

DIRECTORS’ DUTIES

How to ensure directors’ duties are met

When the HSE comes across serious breaches of health and safety legislation it will look to see where the buck stops. What type of evidence will persuade it that directors and senior managers are fulfilling their responsibilities?

ELECTRICAL SAFETY

Steep fine for striking overhead line

Those in the role of principal contractor must manage the safety of all activities on a construction site. One of those responsibilities is to control the risk from overhead lines. What was the outcome of a recent case involving a line strike?

FITNESS FOR WORK

Assessing fitness for work

Some job roles require physical fitness, for example to work at height, in confined spaces or to carry heavy loads. Whilst you are permitted to ask questions about fitness to work, you must avoid discrimination. How can our flow chart help?

LIFTS

Landlord and tenant share blame for defective lift

A case which was heard in August 2021 illustrates how a lift is partly your responsibility even where another party is liable for its provision and maintenance. What happened?

CORONAVIRUS

Improving ventilation to reduce coronavirus risk

The HSE has published practical case studies illustrating how ventilation can be increased in different types of workplace so as to manage the risk of viral transmission. What does it suggest you do?

GAS

Acetylene safety alert

FIRE SAFETY

Q&A - do we need a fire assembly point?
