Dukeries Academy Health & Safety Assembly - 30th January 2019
Pictured above: Adrian Kirkby presenting to the students and Danielle Shaw & Amanda Neuville from the AW Safety Management Ltd Training Centre.
Today saw the AW Safety team visit the Dukeries Academy 6th Form students before they head out into their various Work Experience placements.
As a company we wanted to share some of the wealth of our knowledge with the students about company workplace safety and to use some common-sense judgements whilst off the school campus and out in the world of work.
With some of the students already employed in weekend jobs it was interesting to see who did and didn’t receive inductions and H&S talks prior to starting work.
We encouraged the students to stay Safe by adopting our
“4 Golden Rules of Safety” which are :
- Be fit for Work with no health issues – mind and body
- Receive a briefing before starting work – understand the task/risks/rules
- Report all unsafe conditions – to take care of yourself and others
- Stop all activity if the workplace changes and becomes unsafe
AWSM currently offer work-placement awareness combined risk assessment courses for staff and companies who plan to involve young people in their workplace operations and have not updated their own risk assessments or made any special provisions.
Call 01623 821516 or email email@example.com for more details.

Don’t get caught out with fake alternatives.
CE marking is a certification mark that indicates conformity with health, safety, and environmental protection standards for products.
Counterfeit PPE items can be purchased online, usually via auction sites, or they are readily available on market stalls. Should you see items well below the market price, and if it seems to be ‘too good to be true’ that is because it normally is! Look into this further, trust your instincts – is this fake?! The likelihood is that it will be.
Fake PPE is prevalent within the construction sector as it is so cheap. Fake safety helmets are common on site, these are so poor that they can be split in half using your bare hands and substandard materials are being used to make Protective clothing. Ultimately fake PPE is putting people lives at risk.
If you suspect that your PPE may be fake raise this with your employer / supplier – trust your instinct – Do not use it!
Things to look out for!
- Does it have a CE? If so is it present on the product (marking/labelling)
- Is the CE Mark in the correct font and at least 5mm high?
- For chemical clothing and RPE – is the CE mark accompanied by a 4-digit number? (e.g. CE 0120)
- Are written instructions for use provided within the product?
- Are the instructions for use printed in clear and legible text and written in the language used in the manufacturer’s country of origin?
- Is the name and address of the manufacturer detailed on the user instructions?
- Does the certificate clearly contain the notified body’s name and number?
- Is the notified body from within the EU? There are a few non-EU notified bodies and therefore caution should be taken.
- Does the certificate show signs of tampering i.e./ differing fonts and sizes, colour changes etc?
- Does the certificate contain a date and notified body signature?
- Does the certificate have its terms and conditions included?
- Does the certificate show a clear description of the product, including model references, specifications, and test references?
- Does the certificate state that it is an EC type-examination certificate?
With this in mind, buy from a reputable supplier you can trust
