epar has today commenced sending out the 4 monthly Stand Up Team Talks for September to our customers. The 4 important EHS topics this month are:
- Working with electricity. This talk is very timely given the recent incident where a course mechanic cut a live 11,000 volt electrical cable with an angle grinder
- Manual Handling.
- Responding to a Bomb Threat.
- Skylarking. This talk is also very timely given the recent case in which a worker sustained serious injury whilst skylarking on a forklift and was awarded significant damages. It is important to convey to all staff that they don’t initiate horseplay or practical jokes.
