We have a pupil with significant mobility issues joining our school. Our PE coordinator is concerned about the provision the school can make for the pupil, as we do not have any specialist equipment. What should we do?
We have employees who have to use various items of powered tools to undertake their work activities. One employee has requested that we undertake health surveillance for them in relation to noise exposure even though our assessment indicates noise levels are below the legal action values. Are we obliged to provide such health surveillance?
We have several properties that are fitted with numerous timber-based fire doors. It has been suggested that we should be inspecting these regularly. Is this the case and how often should this be done as it could have significant resource issues?
We have a number of employees who are required to wear eye protection for certain work activities. A recent inspection (including observation of workers) identified that some are not wearing the eye protection provided. How can we improve the use of eye protection?
An external health and safety consultant has reviewed our manual handling operations. They have suggested that we should be labelling the containers being handled with the weight of the load. Is this the case?
