Free Health and Safety Executive Risk Management Webinar

25 May 2021 10:30am

Managing Risk: From Assessment to Control. Bringing your Risk Assessment to Life

Effective risk management systems allow an organisation, large or small, to meet its legal requirements in protecting workers by not only identifying risk but putting in place measures to ensure adequate risk controls. Too often risk assessment becomes a tick-box exercise but it’s vitally important that the organisation is mindful of the risks that are identified and takes ongoing action to monitor and manage them. This strong focus on worker health and safety, in turn, benefits organisational performance.

Supported by Health and Safety Matters magazine, the Health and Safety Executive are offering this free webinar to organisations looking to understand and control different types of risks in their workplaces. This webinar will feature a panel of experts from HSE including HM Health and Safety Inspectors, and NEBOSH who will discuss current guidance and principles in tackling risk. We’ll be taking questions during the webinar and highlighting resources, products and services that can help you build a successful risk management programme that protects employees from harm.

All attendees will earn CPD points.

Bridging the Gap between Fire & Emergency Lighting Systems

10th June 2021 10:30am

Most non-domestic buildings must, by law, have both fire and emergency lighting systems. As public buildings and offices become increasingly complex, their life safety systems must keep pace. Whilst both fire systems and emergency lighting systems are essential to life safety, they are currently treated as separate entities with no communication between the two.

This seminar will explain why integrating fire and emergency lighting systems offers greatly improved safety to a building’s occupants in an emergency. We will cover a range of topics including automatic addressable emergency lighting test systems, integration with fire systems, the ability to apply cause and effect to emergency lighting, and Dynamic Safety Sign Systems (DSSS).

Four years on from Grenfell – how will Building Safety Standards drive change and prevent a re-occurrence?

15 June 2021 at 10:30am

The question of how we prevent another Grenfell Tower disaster has been asked for almost four years. With the enquiry led by Dame Judith Hackitt now concluded and legislation in the form of the Fire Safety Bill and Building Safety Bill currently going through Parliament, there is some understanding of what updated building safety standards may look like for “buildings in scope”; those over 18m high with a residential component/sleeping risk.

This live webinar brings together experts from professional services consultancy Turner & Townsend covering CDM, fire safety and BIM, as well as invited guests such as leading contractors and designers, to discuss the likely implications of the Building Safety Bill enactment and how the industry can successfully “Set the Bar” in achieving a change in culture and behaviours.

Hazmat Guide - Gases

22 June 2021 at 10:30am

Compressed gases are being used today in many industrial and research processes that would not be possible without their use. Compressed gases present many different hazards requiring specific safety protocols for both their safe handling and use. Safety is a high priority when storing and providing gases and must be subject to risk assessment.

For many years, the centralised storage of gases was the only available solution. However, as high purity and specialised gases are more commonly used and processes are changing rapidly, the demand for decentralised solutions of storage and delivery has increased; flexibility of storage without compromising safety is the key.

Join the webinar to learn more about:

  • Classification of gases
  • The hazards & safety measures
  • Cylinder labelling
  • Gases in use / applications
  • Storage sections
  • Centralised & decentralised gas supplies
  • EN14470-2 solutions
  • Technical extraction

Welding and Grinding. Improving worker health through better understanding the hazards and provision of personal protective equipment

Welders are exposed to hazards from welding fume, radiation, spatter, sparks and many more. PPE and other controls can provide a level of protection that can help mitigate the risks to the welder.

As part of the fabrication process welders may also need to use abrasives, for example - to prep the surface prior to welding or clean up areas after welding. These abrasives are used on power tools which by their very nature emit vibration during use.

Join 3M Application Engineer’s Scott Blakelock and Theo Simon for this webinar and learn about welding hazards, how to control exposure and get up to speed with all the latest safety solutions available for welders that meet industry demands. We will also be focusing on the long-term impact HAVs (hand-arm vibration syndrome) has on your workers, and how the selection of abrasives can help control and mitigate vibration exposure alongside airborne and noise hazards in the workplace.

Protecting High-rise residential buildings from fire

For buildings with flammable cladding, the NFCC (National Fire Chiefs Council) recommends a change in evacuation strategy, supported by the introduction of temporary protection measures, such as ‘Waking Watch’ or a fire detection system, until the cladding is removed. If the remedial works are expected to take longer than 12 months, the NFCC strongly recommends the installation of fire alarm system as a more reliable, safe and cost effective solution to a Waking Watch.

In this webinar, we will be exploring the Apollo & Advanced solution which provides superior protection for residents, is fully compliant with NFCC guidance and offers fast installation with minimal disruption for occupants. We will also discuss how this system can be later adapted to convert to the Evacuation and Alert system in line with BS8629 code of practice.

Tall buildings expert Russ Timpson will also discuss what information you should provide to firefighters when they are responding to a fire in a high risk residential building (HRRB), and the fire growth and smoke movement requires a change of the existing/established evacuation strategy, i.e. stay put to simultaneous
