  • The HSE will not cut inspections- Falls From Height, Advance Guardrails
    the cuts were announced These cuts will kill In construction large numbers of employers simply ignore safety laws The only thing which compels them to keep workers safe is the fear of a knock on the door from the HSE If you remove that deterrent deaths will increase UCATT 10 03 2011 Apart from inspections who and what is truly making a difference to the construction industry Due to unsafe practice and the utilisation of unsafe equipment in the construction industry causing fatalities and injuries such as the Mr Chodkiewicz s case there is an increasing demand for modern and innovative products which provide the safest methods when working at height Turner Access ltd Part of Turner Group have gained recognition for such products and services through award wins most recently winning Best achievement in Construction at the SHP IOSH awards 2010 commendations by many clients and reputable firms and collaboration with the HSE resulting in Turner Access being asked to produce detailed guidance for Scaffold erection dismantling and alteration collective protection fall prevention Turner Access are pioneers of safety and innovation in the construction industry and provide safer methods for working at height through the comapny s distinct equipment preventing potentially life altering falls from height across a wide variety of workplaces Products include the unique patented advanced guardrail for aluminium towers called the BetaGuard a range of fully guardrailed low level access and the popular external advanced guardrail called PlusGard The HSE s research on the industry has uncovered two conflicting opinions which they must tackle and provide solutions for both sides Firstly the HSE realise that most of deaths deaths occurred from working at height resulted from utterly predictable and preventable causes Furthermore the HSE realise the associated moral and financial costs of these were immense HSE House of Lords Debate 13 07 2011 Demonstrating the other side of the argument is an extract from HSE s document entitled Health and safety sensible management or bureaucratic strait jacket The organisation points out that excessive risk aversion has its costs too Where organisations feel that they must fill out pages of risk assessments before undertaking even simple low risk tasks they become mired in bureaucracy That stands to damage their competitiveness and ability to innovate At its worst excessive risk aversion can also curb our personal freedoms and opportunities Children in particular need to learn how to manage risks and adventure activities such as rock climbing sailing and canoeing are an ideal way of doing this And if rules were imposed which made it more difficult for children to swim then surely the net result will be fewer children able to swim and more at greater risk in later life All good reasons why we should be concerned about excessive risk aversion Turner Access Ltd products utilise advanced technologies and processes to overcome the abovementioned predictable and preventable accidents These products are cost effective and easy to use At the same time the products provide freedom for operatives

  • Painting a great memory: the last surviving worker of the Bay and Golden Gate bridge has died.
    as a member of the high gang Daily Mail Feb 2011 Mr Fogle often commented that the taller Golden Gate was in fact safer to work on than the Bay Bridge six miles away which opened six months earlier Mr Fogle was a painter on several other bridges but returned to the Golden Gate to continue with maintenance work until his retirement in 1976 aged 62 Painters are still required on the bridge in order to prevent rusting and corrosion of the steel which is caused by the air s high salt content The bridge was named Chrysopylae or Golden Gate by John C Fermont as it reminded him of a harbor in Istanbul named Chrysoceras or Golden Horn Fogle was one of hundreds to be part of the construction which has been estimated would cost more than 1 billion if constructed today About com Feb 2011 The main material used to build the bridge was transported via rail and sea the bridge s fabricated steel which was made in New Jersey Pennsylvania and Maryland plants was transported to Philadelphia by rail and then shipped through the Panama Canal to San Francisco Apart from being one of the world s most impressive structures of its time Daily Mail Feb 2011 the bridge was also well known for the 11 workers who died during construction a fatality happened around every six weeks Nowadays the fatality rates are far lower for similar types of construction work due to advances in technology and improved legislation In 1937 unsafe practice was not uncommon and the height of innovation at the time was a net suspended under the Bay and Golden Gate bridges i e falls were accepted as unavoidable It had been estimated that 35 people were expected to die while building the Golden
