Letter from Lesley: Prevention is all.

15/02/2019 - 02:41PM

There was a worrying alert from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) about the cancer dangers associated with welding and the fumes it can give off.  We are trying to find a suitable expert to help us deliver a webinar about this and we’ve more to tell you about it in the next edition of Project Safety Matters due out in early March.  In the meantime, I think we need to consider a proportionate and sensible response seeking to minimise exposure wherever possible and to wear appropriate protection where not.  

It is a very sound lesson in prevention.

Many of the things that cause long term health problems result from poorly thought through work schedules and ill-conceived practices on site.

APS professionals are experts in helping clients mitigate risk as well as being there to get any project delivered on time and on budget. I know you are no shrinking violets but remember to challenge and speak out when you see things that are not right.  In the meantime if you are concerned about cancer, MacMillan is on hand to provide help and support.
