The company I work for is a joke. We now have a new "health and safety officer" if you can call her that, as she has no formal training. Today I was given a photocopy of some health and safety stuff to read, which was actually her copy from last year, but told i'd get my own copy when she got round to doing some more. Inside the job title is incorrect to which i was told to "cross it out and write mine in". It states we should have a fire drill every 6 months. I've been there 5 years and not had one, the alarms should be tested monthly again i don't think they been done since i started. I have a shhet to "tick" and sign that states I have been told - where fire exits and alarms are, er no but i think i know where 1 alarm is and i know where the exits are. I have been told where the meeting point is well kind of it says in the handout but a bit no specific ie in the service yard out back. i have been told fire proceedures er no, i have been told where 1st aid box is er no but i know its in the staff room somehere. I have been told who first aiders are no again , but just know who they (all 2 of them). I have been given a copy of H & S regs no again, and I have been told where the H&S policy is kept erm no and i haven't got the foggiest. Am I being unreasonable refusing to sign it? Everyone else seems to have signed it. I don't want to be pig headed but the health and safety is a joke, I have equipment that they refuse to do anything with even though all the cabling is cracked and the bare wires exposed. My dad reckons if we were inspected by HSE they would close us down.
