Health and Safety Projects

Dermal Labs

We continue to work with Dermal Laboratories 2 days a week to implement a Health & Safety Management System across their 3 sites, which included manufacturing, warehousing, offices and laboratories. A lot of work has gone into developing and producing new Safety Policies and supporting documents for the whole Group. This documentation has then been backed up with specific Risk Assessment, CoSHH and DSEAR training.

Summer 2013

We have been very busy over the last year, so we have had little time to upate this section of the website,

We are still working with  a pharmaceutical company  in developing their safety management system over their three sites. We are implementing a computer based CoSHH system that will help to ensure all SDS's are mainitained on line and up to date. This should safe a lot of time with the management of SDS's.

We have aslo been involved in property surveys and construction projects at Cambridge Colleges, these included boiler installations and lead roof work.

Earlier this year we were approached Cranfield University School Of applied science to look at their CoSHH procedures and practices.

This involved assessing CoSHH related safety in a variety of research environments:-

  • Research Welding,
  • Vehicle traction testing on loose surfaces,
  • Soil, household waste and sewage sample dust exposure,
  • Nanoparticle research
  • Fermentation and analysis of sewage
  • Exposure powdered metal coatings, this included exposure to silica, alumina, nickel and chrome.
  • Testing to destruction of Formula One carbon fibre body structures.

We assessed the current procedures and controls and submitted a report with recommendations.  As can be seen from the Research involved this was not a straight forward application of the COSHH regulations.

  • Along with the report we produced documentation to cover,
  • Chemical Storage
  • CoSHH Health Surveillance
  • CoSHH Exposure Monitoring
  • Guidance on Fume Cupboard and Microbiological Safety Cabinet Use
  • Use of Nano Materials
  • PPE Guidance

The Cranfield School of Biological Science’s aim was to obtain certification to OHSAS18001 which we are pleased to say that with our input to their CoSHH systems they achieved in April with only 3 minor non-conformities.
