• Grant Nicholson on Covid-19 and the law
    Thanks Grant. If you wish to respond to his questions above, or to ask one of your own, please do so.

    Responses will enter the queue for moderation and potential release to the Forum on Friday morning before the session starts.

    Not all responses will necessarily be released to the Forum, depending on the volume of questions, any repetition of the same question, etc.
  • Hillary Bennett on responding to mental harm as we do to physical harm
    OK, it's nearing 10 so time to post your responses to the questions above, and to tell of your experience grappling with the mental health side of things.
  • Craig Marriott on developing an effective H&S strategy
    One last question coming up before we let Craig go ...
  • Craig Marriott on developing an effective H&S strategy
    I have tweaked the Forum's settings so that, from now on, all questions for Craig's session tomorrow will come to me privately for consideration. So I can release them one at a time during the chat session.

    So ... fire away! What queries about H&S strategy do you have?
  • Hand held infra red thermometer use
    Good move. We live in uncertain times and no one has all the answers, let alone all the best questions. Self-doubt is our friend. [End of philosophical statement.]
  • "Health and Safety" Kills Off Another Right
    This post is deliberately inflammatory. People who wish to comment on Massey University's decision are free to do so elsewhere in the many other more appropriate online forums.

    This thread is now closed.
  • Environment Portfolio
    FYI, a new category for posts has been created, called: Environment: the 'E' in 'HSE'
    Also a new category for H&S reps, so by all means encourage your reps to join the Forum.
  • Medical marijuana use linked with fewer workplace deaths
    I don't think there were any 'participants' as such. That is, the study was entirely data-based. No one was interviewed.
  • Tips on using the Forum
    Looks like you can't change your name yourself (I just tried wearing my @Peter Bateman hat). However as administrator I can change member names.
  • Tips on using the Forum
    I have changed the Forum's settings so that members may now edit their own posts up to one day afterwards. (Previously, members could edit their posts only up to ten minutes after posting.)

    To edit your own post, revisit the post and hover over the three dots, which should give you a pencil logo - that's the edit option.
  • Comfortable Combos - Eye protection that works with Ear Muffs
    Good thinking to ask people to direct message you with commercial recommendations!

    As a reminder to members, direct messaging in this forum is simple:
    • click on the person's name/icon
    • select 'Send a message'
  • Tips on using the Forum
    Ever wondered why you no longer receive the weekly summary email from the Safeguard Forum?

    It's probably because the email address you used when you joined the Forum is no longer valid, usually because you have changed organisation.

    • Click on your name at top left
    • Select "Edit Profile"
    • Select "Change Email"

    It could also be because, when you created your Forum a/c, you unticked the box "Subscribe to mailing list".
    To fix this, go into "Set Preferences" and remove the tick from "Remove me from mailing list".
  • Tips on using the Forum
    Have you changed your email address since you joined the Safeguard Forum?

    If so, please be sure change your email address in your Forum account.

    Otherwise you won't receive the weekly activity email, which is sent every Thursday at midday.

    And that would be a shame!
  • H&S Management Software Query
    This thread is now closed. This is a non-commercial forum. It is a fine line between letting feedback flow and commercial advocacy. The best way to respond to an enquiry seeking product endorsements is by private DM. Just select the enquirer's profile and start a 'new conversation', which will be entirely private. Thanks!
  • Worksafe Inspector Disparaging Health and Safety Consultants
    Nothing to do with this thread's topic, but a timely moment to point out that there is a direct messaging facility within the Forum, so that any member can contact any other member privately. As administrator I can't read anyone's DMs, but I do get the statistics which suggest this facility is little used at present.

    How to use it? Find the member you wish to contact, then "Send a message".
