Too obvious, remove the fuses then watch them scratch their heads in confusion

Just have a fire blanket on hand all the time and it's covered.

But make sure you take it out of the plastic film first, the fire officer said to me a few months ago. Why are your fire blankets still in the plastic film? my answer was "I didn't want to get them dirty" has he ripped off the film!

Re: Why do we bother - another "teachers" just ignore H&S when i suits thread!

The HSE says: COSHH covers substances that are hazardous to health (the clue is in the name). Substances can take many forms and include:

    • chemicals
    • products containing chemicals
    • fumes
    • dusts
    • vapours
    • mists
    • nanotechnology
    • gases and asphyxiating gases and
    • biological agents

One of the main purposes of a COSHH risk assessment is to consider: Can you avoid using a hazardous substance?

If the product by its nature is known to be non-hazardous, you can't carry out the purpose of a COSHH risk assessment.

For example:

    • Can you avoid using a hazardous substance or use a safer process – preventing exposure, eg using water-based rather than solvent-based products, applying by brush rather than spraying?
    • Can you substitute it for something safer – eg swap an irritant cleaning product for something milder, or using a vacuum cleaner rather than a brush?
    • Can you use a safer form, eg can you use a solid rather than liquid to avoid splashes or a waxy solid instead of a dry powder to avoid dust?

Then again, water can be hazardous if you fall in enough of it [Big grin.png]
