Martin Mulholland reflects on a quarter of a century providing health and safety support to UK businesses.

I started in Health and Safety in 1994 after accepting a job reflecting my academic background – this being environmental management – and decided that a slight change of direction was in order. 

I joined TGF Consultants Ltd in Warrington and began my NEBOSH General Certificate – the best starting place for learning what is a very wide-ranging subject. Starting out can be very nerve wracking as initially you do not have the knowledge base available. This can be daunting when pressed by Clients for answers. It has been a long learning curve (and one that doesn’t stop) and I learned to be patient – that knowledge takes time.

 

There are a number of substances that Companies may use in day to day operations – both when working on site as well as at Company offices.  All of these substances will present some degree of risk to those who are exposed.  The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations 2002 (COSHH) requires an assessment of these risks.

 

 As an Employer you may often require your staff to drive as part of their job requirements for you.

 As a result, you will responsible for the “provision and use” of these vehicles.

 

Keeping people over the age of 50 at work is becoming increasingly important.  Those aged 50 and over already represent 1 in 5 of the workforce - and soon this proportion will rise to 1 in 4 as people continue to live, and work, longer.

 

There are requirements under the Health and Safety (First Aid) Regulations 1981 for Employers to ensure the provision of adequate and appropriate equipment, facilities and personnel to ensure employees receive immediate attention if they are injured or taken ill at work.
