Our Health & Safety Expert Group met again this week to discuss industry related topics. We welcomed a new member to group, Richard Bufton of Lineage Logistics.
In this meeting, we discussed emerging issues with our group of H&S professionals. Topics covered included the new BFFF assured guidance for Emergency Arrangements and Treatment in the Event of Eye Exposure to Ammonia, Freezer Risk Assessments and Stress Risk Assessments.
We were also joined by our membership primary authority provider, Helen Atkinson of Wakefield Metropolitan District Council who talked us through some emerging issues such as freight containers as a confined space/hazardous atmosphere, drugs & alcohol, driving at work, vehicle load security, welfare at work, congestion charges leading to HGV’s decanting stock just outside of ULEZ areas, energy costs/knock on effects and noise.
Our guest speakers included:
· Neil Wells Latus Health & Kelly Coggon of IDC (Occupational Health Providers) and
· Andy Mee of Tilisafe (Training Software Solutions Providers).
