Certificate of Merit Award Ceremony, September 2012

The ranch awarded its inaugural Certificate of Merit to 12 health and safety heroes from sectors including social services, schools, engineering and hospitality.

Branch Chair Donald MacFarlane in his address said, "Some of our winners have gone way beyond the call of duty while others have thought innovatively about how to solve problems.  We think it important to recognise the contributions of those who make others' working lives healthier and safer, perhaps without even realising that what they are doing is going above what is expected of them. All of the winners truly exemplify this.”

The Recipients were: Jim Emslie, Michael Bower, Steve McLearn, John Tough, Alan Johnstone, Yvonne Bertram, Barry Copeland, Simon Clunie, Margaret Smith, Hillary MacDonald, Stuart Cheetham and Laura Downie.

IOSH Vice-President Karen McDonnell presented the Certificates.

Site visit – RPS Asbestos Testing Centre: July 2012

There was an initial presentation on “Implications of the 2012 Asbestos Regulations” that came into force in April as an update to previous Asbestos Regulation. The major difference was that some forms of non-licensed work with asbestos have additional requirements - notification of work, record keeping and medical surveillance.

A guided tour of the company testing facilities followed. This traced what happens to asbestos samples from point of collection through systematic steps of testing and laboratory analysis; sampling for asbestos fibres in the air, fibre counting; sampling and identification of asbestos in bulk materials. The tour emphasised the importance of asbestos surveys, use of effective facemask/other PPE and safe work procedures in managing the risks from this hidden killer.
