1984/6Bulletin / June 1984Health & Safety / An advisory visit by the Health & Safety Inspector has taken place. On the whole we appear to be showing the necessary common sense about H&S matters. However, the following points are worth making.
1. People using chemicals are not always aware of the hazards involved with particular chemicals. Anyone using chemicals to treat woodworm or dry rot must use suitable gloves and goggles - this is very important. Also, if these chemicals are used indoors, good ventilation is essential.
2. A number of Calor gas cylinders were stored indoors - this must not happen.
3. Lead burning can no longer take place.
4. The sawpits need better protection and a number of extra guards are necessary in the Lurgashall Mill.
We shall also need to revise and renew some of the lifting equipment used in dismantling and re-erecting buildings.
Detailed recommendations will be made on receipt of the formal report from the H&S Executive.
