  • A Common Strategy for Food & Drink
    Since the 1990's, the food and drink sector has made a 60% reduction to its overall injury rate. Despite this, the rate remains much higher than the average for UK manufacturing and the sector also has significant ill-health issues in particular musculoskeletal disorder injuries and occupational asthma. The Food and Drink Manufacture Health and Safety Forum (FDMF) , a trilateral group comprising key food / drink trade associations, trade unions, and HSE, has developed a revised, voluntary Common Strategy . This strategy demonstrates FDMF members' clear intent to work together, to build upon previous achievements and accelerate the reduction in the food and drink sector's ill-health and injury rates.

  • Safe2Torch:designing out the risk of roof fires
    Gas torches can be a major fire risk when installing torch-on roofing membranes. The risk of fires could be virtually eliminated if flame free products are specified at the survey/design stage. A focus group was set up by the National Federation of Roofing Contractors, which included roofing manufacturers and contractors. The group agreed guidance and a robust checklist which would support anyone specifying roof works that required the use of gas torches. It was also agreed to run a campaign to highlight the risks and solutions to a wider audience, to promote safe specifications and safe installation methods and help promote a more positive image of the industry.
