Kinights Park, Kingston University - Health & Safety Consultant

Safety Limits Ltd landed a four month contract in the Faculty side of  Kingston University, last year in 2014 where they were asked to sort out all the Health & Safety for all of the Faculty, for all the different workshops as outlined below in July 2014, the contract officially ended, but due to the work needed to complete, Safety Limits Ltd was asked to carry on for a further six months up until January 2015 in order to finish this project.

Listed below are the different workshops in FADA (Faculty of Architecture, Design and Arts)

  • Print making workshop
  • Fine Arts
  • 3D workshop
  • Fashion and design workshop
  • Photography and Digital Media
  • Archichecture and Landscape

Safety Limits Ltd started writing all of the policies and documented procedures for all of these workshops, and all Asociated Risk Assessments for all of the machinery and  as a result was then offered a further six months in which to complete this task.

FADA will have a complete set of polices and procedures for all of the workshops once this task has been completed, with the pote tail to carry out audits in the future.

There is a complete Health And Safety Policy which. Outlines all of the workshops in FADA with a very important document for all of the workshops called Risk And Control Measures, this outlines all of the risks and the control methods for each workshop.

A document entitled Safety Guidelines was introduced into the 3D workshop and will be rolled out to all of the workshops in FADA.

The document is written for all Staff and Students in all of the workshops and gives everyone a clear Safety Directive on what can and can't be done.

Amongst all of the documentation for the workshops there were a lot of Mangement checklists which were written especially in the 3D workshop where most of the Hazardous operations were carried out.

Mangement checklists included the following:

  • Mangement checklist for COSHH
  • Management checklist for PPE
  • Mangenment checklist for Hand Tools
  • Management checklist for spraying equipment 
  • Mangenment checklist for compressed air
  • Mangement checklist for Hot Works
  • Risk Assessment for Manual Handling
