Let Studies in Work take the strain and write your PSOPs, ensuring compliance with current requirements.
Let Studies In Work write not just your COSHH assessment but simplified information sheets on the storage use and handling of substances, includes bacteria that may be generated on site.
Many pools and plant rooms have now reached the end of their working life and are due (or commonly overdue) for refurbishment. Studies In Work will carry out an independent, unbiased survey on your behalf and provide a written report of what needs replacing, what can be repaired, and estimate the working life left in an item or process. They will also provide provisional costings for these works. Studies In Work are able to write specifications and if required, supervise the installation in its entirety.
A list of referees is available on request.

To ensure compliance with COSHH regulations, Lead Body Guidance and British Standards, all pools and spa’s accessible by your employees and the public should be micro-biologically tested on a regular basis.
The guidance states that conventional pools should be tested monthly, hydrotheraphy pools weekly, and spas and hot tubs monthly plus a test for Legionella every third month.

Blast from the Past

Every year there are still 4,000 deaths from asbestos related diseases.
This represents 80 people a week, a higher figure than those dying on our roads. It is a common misconception that asbestos was something that used to be a threat in industry.

AN ACCIDENT WAITING TO HAPPEN’, SAY THE SUN NEWSPAPER
An Egyptian hotel where Thomas Cook customer couple died has been sued by FORTY Brits struck down with illnesses in just four years.
John Cooper, 69, and his 64-year-old wife Susan, from Burnley, died at the Steigenberger Aqua Magic hotel in Hurghada on Egypt’s Red Sea coast on Tuesday, 21st August 2018.
Health and safety expert Allen Wilson when interviewed by The Sun said words to the ffect of: “Sadly this was an accident waiting to happen. In many cases instead of using experts like myself tour operators have now been using local reps to manage health and safety.”
Allen says; “Until about four years ago, two vastly experienced safety consultants and myself (also vastly experienced) carried out many inspections of new and old facilities throughout Europe, North Africa, Egypt, Turkey and Greece ensuring that facilities were safe and fit for purpose. We also carried out inspections following fatalities. Then for reasons unknown we were not commissioned to carry out any further inspections, perhaps to make savings, I don’t know”.
