  2. I thought I'd upload this document I made to help any smaller outfits that find it difficult to keep on top of risk assessments, what tools they need for the job etc. This maybe a pointless task but if it helps at least one person then that's cool... So, the idea behind this risk assessment is to fill it out on a tablet, laptop or desktop computer when on (or after) your assessment. This way you know what tools you need for the job and what safety guidance documentation you should be aware of ie. AFAG, FISA, ICoP etc. I have already populated the "Coding Sheet" located on the 2nd tab at the bottom right of the Excel document with some limited info of which can all be changed to suit you. This sheet is totally open to change. What info I have on there already is just to show you what info is needed to populate the risk assessment. The idea behind this is so you only have to set this document up once. Once your coding sheet is populated with equipment you own, safety guides you adhere to etc. then filling out a site specific risk assessment becomes easier and all your left to do is upload your own signature and then keep everything stored on your hard drive or on the cloud. You can obviously print the document if you prefer keeping paper copies. You can right click the "Coding" tab and hide it too so when you export as a PDF when saving, the coding section will be hidden. You will need some knowledge on excel to use this but hopefully I've made it simple enough. I've protected the main worksheet so you can only select the cells that need information. Anyway, have a play. Hopefully it all works. Change what you need to change in the coding sheet but try not to move any parameters on the coding sheet either, otherwise the drop down menus and/or auto generation will not work. If you end up using this and want me to make any changes at all then just ask. If you have any criticism, ideas, add-ons, changes and/or advice then please voice it on here. I will update and upload new versions as and when needed. Blank Risk Assessment.xlsx
  3. Hi all, I currently work 5 days a week for a company as an arb surveyor/consultant. I am looking to earn some extra cash by carrying out some local surveys and providing reports on weekends for mostly risk assessments and tree management reports. I may end up doing some small BS5837 and subsidence reports but will mostly do these through work due to the complexity and other reasons. Are there any liability/insurance etc. issues I need to sort before I can get started? I am fully qualified with several years experience. Any advice will be greatly appreciated!
  4. I have just had cause to look through the generic risk assessments for a commercial arb company, as a part of another job I was doing. These were revised in December 2014, but I found that all the references to AFAG guides and qualifications were out of date. The CS units referred to having ceased to be current in 2012, and more than half the AFAG guides now having gone over to FISA. I suspect that the revision in this case was just a change of date at the bottom of each page. It did make me wonder how much more of the content was out of date and many more risk assessments there are out there which, having had the same 'lick and promise' approach to updating, could come back and haunt the company if there is an accident.
  5. Morning, Wondering if anyone can help me!! Had our office broken into and all of our Cpu's stolen including HD's! Can anybody help us by posting a copy of a relevant, upto date job sheet including Equipment checklist, RA etc. Any help greatly appreciated. Big GS.
  6. Tree safety management is a matter of limiting the risk of harm from tree failure while maintaining the benefits conferred by trees. The Quantified Tree Risk Assessment (QTRA) system moves the management of tree safety away from labelling trees as either ‘safe’ or ‘unsafe’ and thereby away from requiring definitive judgements from either tree assessors or tree managers. Instead, QTRA quantifies the risk of significant harm from tree failure in a way that enables tree managers to balance safety with tree values and operate to predetermined limits of tolerable or acceptable risk. We have received some excellent feedback from workshops carried out throughout the UK as well as Australia and New Zealand over the course of the year. Visit Training to use QTRA for booking and further information on QTRA and Visual Tree Assessment workshops.
  7. Does someone have an up to date risk assessment for winching operations that I can use?
  8. Hi I'm looking for some advice please. I worked previously contracting for SSE powerlines work, where you have to do risk assessments, ppe, method statements and paperwork for everything. I've moved to a new company where I'm still self employed but basically running the day to day manual work. The owner is a bit old school and reckons I don't need to do risks assessment, loler or full ppe. What exactly is the law and consequences of not doing them. Cheers Andy
