There is no substitute for Health & Safety awareness in Design Technology and Science areas, where hazards are constantly present. Especially the air you breathe! Therefore, when working in, designing or upgrading a department or just purchasing a single item of machinery, care must be taken. Do you know the implications of the COSHH Regulations, BS4163:2007, PUWER Regulations, Building Bulletin 81 HSG Note 258, BB88, Manual Handling 16th Edition, Gas Safe Register, EH40 Or Guidance notes EH 54 and 55 If you do not, the activities, works or equipment you use or carry could well be illegal or just waiting for an accident to happen.
HME Technology can provide comprehensive risk assessments for full turnkey projects or for just a single machine to ensure individual needs and Health & Safety requirements are met. Rooms can be individually checked to ensure the electric, gas, lighting, floors and walls are suitable. HME will carry out thorough examinations and conformity checks on machinery to ensure guards and switches are up-to-standard, with full reports and certification (or upgrading reports) issued. For many years HME have been manufacturers of educational equipment and Local Exhaust Ventilation plant, removing fumes and dust particulate from work areas. With our knowledge and classroom experience we are able to test and certificate all of your L.E.V. plant. In fact, our Health & Safety services cover Regulations 6 to 10 of COSHH.
With the historic experience of asbestos, the diseases induced by subjection to fumes and dust particulate may take years to appear - therefore regular testing of the plant is essential.
HME is a Gas Safe Register installation company and uses NICEIC electrical approved engineers ensuring all works will be carried out to current standards. We are also an ISO.9001:2008 Quality Assured company, so you can be confident that equipment leaving our factory is of the highest quality and complies with all relevant CE standards, as well as being CHAS approved contractors. All our work is carried out to a high standard to comply with the latest legal requirements regarding electrics, gas and COSHH.
