Notice Type Improvement Notice
Description P/SPD/210220/01-310496202 You have failed to take effective measures to prevent a person accessing dangerous parts, or to stop the movement of such parts before any part of a person enters the danger zone, such as providing sliding interlocked guards for the CNC milling machine or other equally effective measures P/SPD/210220/02-310496253 The electric arc welding machine has not been maintained, so far as is reasonably practicable to prevent danger. There is damage to the equipment giving rise to the risk of electric shock and explosion due to exposed parts P/SPD/210220/03 - 310496278 The guarding in place on the machine is not suitable because there is no interlock or other equally affective measures in place to prevent any part of a person entering the danger zone when the dangerous parts are in motion IN/SPD100320/01 - 310509326 You have failed to take suitable and sufficient steps to prevent, as far as reasonably practicable, any person falling a distance liable to cause personal injury during the loading or unloading of vehicles (in particular flat bed trailers) on your site in that you have not provided suitable work equipment, or defined work methods, for access/ egress and work on raised vehicle beds. IN/SPD100320/02 - 310509330 You have failed to ensure that an engineering control provided to control exposure to a substance hazardous to health - namely the local exhaust ventilation (LEV) systems provided to control exposure to welding fume in the welding shop on site - have been maintained in an efficient state and efficient working order in that; significant deterioration of the system, namely damaged ductwork, was not identified and repaired. IN/SPD100320/03 - 310509332 You have failed to take effective measures to prevent access to dangerous parts of machinery in that; you have failed to implement an effective check procedure to ensure that the guards and protection devices provided for the machinery in your workshop, including the CNC milling machine (serial number 9045) and Gurutzpe Auto m/s CNC lathe, are maintained in an efficient state, efficient working order and good repair and, as a result safety critical parts of these machine are missing or defective.
