From January-March 2020 the HSE will be visiting sites to ensure companies comply with the laws, focusing on the control of exposure to welding fumes and metalworking fluids. Make sure you are compliant and make regular checks on your policies and procedures.
It’s never been more important to have this kind of legislation and procedures in place. A company was fined for not having “a suitable safe system of work in place prior to the incident” in which a worker tried to clear a blockage in a moulding machine and got their hand crushed, resulting in two fingers being amputated.
