The Mossford team will be attending their annual health and safety day on Wednesday 11th March at the Woolston Manor Golf & Country Club.

After Antony gives his opening welcome and an update on the two companies, we will be running a session designed by Esteem Ltd and used on their excellent Construction Site Management modern apprenticeship programmes designed to make everyone think about who is responsible if there is an accident and where actions taken by individuals or groups could have made a scenario have a happier outcome.

We will then take the opportunity to face fit test everyone again for their JSP Force 8 Press to Check respirators.

We have invited Quelfire Ltd to give a presentation on their passive fire protection products.

After lunch we will have two Toolbox Talks from our experienced site managers, Barry and Daryl on the subjects of confined spaces and lead safety and a session updating everyone on policies such as Equal Opportunities, Drugs & Alcohol, and GDPR.

Michelle will present a one-hour training session on COSHH assessment and give everyone the opportunity to work through a practical example on products that we use often.

Our Contracts Manager Terry and Estimator Joe will then present on dust risks and new rules regarding welding fumes.

Finally, we open the floor to everyone to comment on the things they have learned during the day, current health & safety best practice, and new rules and regulations. It's an opportunity for everyone to state their case, for example if some item of PPE is causing an issue or to propose measures of their own.

Michelle will present a new award for the "most useful" operative of the past 12 months and apparently it is someone's birthday so there might be cake...

A few of us spent useful time at the FIREX and Safety & Health Expo at the Excel Centre on 18th, 19th and 20th June. There are always loads of new products to look at, suppliers to meet up with and interesting lectures, CPD and open forum discussions.

This year we met up with our contacts at FSI where we purchase much of our passive fire protection materials. Many thanks to Tim Barker and his colleagues for their time.

We also had a long chat with Tony Corcoran who is membership secretary for the ASFP (Association of Specialist Fire Protection). This is a very worthwhile organisation and we are starting our membership application. It's not just a case of paying some money and joining. The application process is rigorous as it should be so that you can be sure that companies in the association are reputable and have roper systems in place.

I hope to post here soon that we have been accepted for membership.
