Cooling Tower Inspection Information -At the last NMI H&S managers meeting at NXP the subject of cooling tower inspections by the HSE was brought up.Went to a presentation by Ashland water treatment company yesterday which was about what to expect in the forthcoming inspection of cooling towers by the HSE. Evidently it will happen, the HSE’s intention is to cover the whole country. It was suggested during the presentation that companies that had not filled in the questionnaire would be highest on the list of inspections, as would companies with multiple cooling towers and companies in built up areas.This is a pdf copy of the presentation given and the inspection pack that will be used by the inspectors when they are on site.

Leading Lagging Indicators -This document is one we started to put together at Diodes to further explain what is behind each indicator.Just as an explanation some of the leading indicators are self-explanatory, however we felt that some indicators required further explanation. Taking legionella check as an example, if it’s as simple as legionella check all you know is, have I got legionella or not, and this is then a lagging indicator. What we actually do is a whole series of checks and pm’s to mitigate legionella becoming an issue, which are the leading indicators. Dave Spence 31/01/12
