    Hi, Starsparkle, In health & Safety terms the prosecutions are normally brought by the Health Safety Executive, but yes, since the inception of the CPS any Police prosecutions are now routinely channelled through them, but the police still retain the power to prosecute.
  • StarSparkle said on 01-Nov-2014, 2 years ago
    My understanding was that the police don't prosecute, the CPS does. It's the police's job to investigate, once and if they have enough evidence then the CPS decide whether or not to prosecute.

    Good job you've retired - it might not have been an apple pie in surgery! I take it you're a fellow NHS pensioner, like me - which hospital?

    Aliendewd. I spent over 25 yrs as an H&S pro and I'm well aware of such expedient thinking & practice. That doesn't mean that people cannot pay a bit more attention to their induction training - all these points are strictly based on induction info and are designed to make you aware of the chances you are taking by the practices you outline as well as your legal rights.

    Prasutagus You're really amazed no one has got all 10 correct? H&S comes secondary in many work places due to time restraints or pressure from above to complete A, B and C before the end of the working day, hence short cuts are taken to ensure the tasks are completed and H&S goes out the window along with the full list of directives. It's not amazing that no one has got 10 right. It's perfectly normal.

    no bad
  • Prasutagus said on 23-Feb-2012, 4 years ago
    Having now retired after 20 years as an H&S Pro, I must say I'm amazed that no-one has got all 10 right. It rather makes me wonder about the quality of H&S training people receive these days, especially at induction. All these questions really are just basic info!
