When it comes to control measures for workplace risks, we know that there’s a clear hierarchy of responses. Once a risk assessment has highlighted hazards in your workplace, the first aim should always be to eliminate them.

If this is not possible, then you look to replace the risk factor, isolate it, or separate individuals from the risk through barriers and routines. In other words, you should always take the most comprehensive form of protection possible (Read More)

Top Considerations For Design And Build In Hazardous Environments

When Mount Vesuvius erupted in AD79, the citizens of Pompeii were not prepared for the devastation that followed. Having lain dormant for the last 71 years, the Italian authorities continue to prepare for the next eruption from one of the most dangerous active volcanos in the world.

Here, Paul Mannion, project engineer at engineering solutions provider Boulting Group, explains the considerations that should be made when designing for builds in hazardous environments.

The Dangerous Substances and Explosive Atmosphere Regulations 2002 (DSEAR), defines a hazardous area as “any place in which an explosive atmosphere may occur in quantities such as to require special precautions to protect the safety of workers”. It is vital that precautions are taken when constructing, installing and using apparatus in areas that have been defined as hazardous. (Read More)

What will wellbeing look like in a workplace dominated by insecurity, gig work and intelligent machines?

British Safety Council says our understanding of changing risks to health, safety and wellbeing needs to improve, in a new report about the future of work

The public debate on the future of work has centred so far on the likely shape of the workplace and its implications for both employers and employees. There has been far less focus on what this might mean for workers’ health, safety and wellbeing. When wellbeing has been considered, the discussion has centred on the present, rather than preparing us for the challenges of the future.
