My weekend.....

is almost over.......

It SHALL be the duty of every employer to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare at work of all his employees. An employer must do this by providing and maintaining the following, so far as is reasonably practicable:

Sorry, I think my revision is pouring out of my ears...

To provide and maintain:
2(2)(a) Maintenance and provision of plant and system of work that are safe.
2(2)(b) Ensuring safety in relation to use, handling, storage and transport of articles and substances.
2(2)(c) Provide necessary information, instruction, training and supervision.
2(2)(d) Maintain places of work in a condition that is safe including safe access and egress.
2(2)(e) Provision and maintenance of working environment that is safe and adequate as regards welfare facilities.

oops, there I go again......

So, to sum up.......my weekend is passing in a blur of laundry and Health and Safety.....

Criminal (Statute) Law is:
Rules of behaviour laid down by the Government or State and normally enacted by Parliament through Acts of Parliament.
Courts determine innocence or guilt.
Burden of proof is known as ‘beyond reasonable doubt’.
Outcome is fines or imprisonment.

Trying to get this stuff to stick in my head is NOT easy....and don't get me started on acronyms.....

There's ASIT, IAIDIM, ERICPD, ACATSPP, PEME, CCCC.......and the list goes on. Oh, and they are just the ones that help me remember the processes!!

Happy Mothers Day to all my Mommyfriends who celebrate it today. I know it's a 'Hallmark Day' but I don't know one woman who would turn down garage flowers, kiddie-drawn cards, choccies and breakfast in bed! :-)

Update - got my new specs.....and the rumours are correct. Vari-focals make you nauseous....[oo-er]

Another update - thanks for the emails - I am much encouraged :-)

what about hurt feelings at work... I demand satisfaction!

craziequeen said...

poor Uisce - did you pigs push you over?? Or has Mrs Uisce sent you to sleep with the goats? :-)

Actually, hurt feelings at work are part and parcel of 2(2)(e), being part of the work environment and of welfare concern.... bullying, stress etc etc...

And the vari-focals, I've had them for months and they still give me a headache. You'd think I'd learn how to use them....
