The HSE have announced that there are going to be two campaigns this year:
April/May and October for 2 weeks at a time concentrating on refurbishment works and health issues. The refurbishment works will look at all the usual issues: Asbestos, Slips& trips, housekeeping , manual handling etc.
Health issues is an area where the HSE are putting greater emphasis on: Dust, material handling, manual handling generally, noise, vibration, use of chemicals, fumes and asbestos. Please advise all your Supervisors and site managers of these initiatives there is a wealth of literature on the HSE website, we would recommend that a programme of toolbox talks are undertaken to refresh everyone on the controls expected.
As an early notification our seminar in November will be concentrating on health.
A new innovative stairwell protection system is on the market. The Adjustable Stairwell Access Platform (ASAP) has been created and developed by Richard Pearson and his management team at Pearson Carpentry Limited to solve an age-old problem of working at stairwells in construction.
With design engineers involved to develop the system to withstand loads of up to 1200Kg, the platform will be suitable for multiple persons and trades. With short installation times, it is easy to install from lower stairs and from behind existing temporary edge protection and can be partially removed to allow for access and egress should it be so required.
Designed to help employers satisfy the requirements of the Work at Height Regulations, the system has been successfully tested by tradespersons in real-life situations with positive feedback.
