South Lanarkshire Council has been fined after two workers suffered flash burns

September 2nd, 2013[Comments Off on South Lanarkshire Council has been fined after two workers suffered flash burns]

South Lanarkshire Council has been fined after two workers suffered flash burns when they struck an electrical cable while digging a ditch.

Anthony Zambonini, 59, suffered burns to his arms and face but was spared even more serious injury by his insulated gloves.

Fellow worker David Leven, 33, was blown off his feet and had an eye burned when the strike happened at a site in East Kilbride four years ago.

The two men were digging the ditch prior to laying a drainpipe when Zambonini thought he had struck a rock. He picked up a steel bar to try and break up the ground unaware he was hitting an 11,000 volt live electrical cable.

In doing so, the cable would have been earthed, reducing this to 6,350 volts.

When it fractured, he was hit by an electric shock, receiving flash burns.

Zambonini needed regular treatment in a specialist burns unit for several weeks and was off work for four months.

His colleague also sustained a flash burn to his left eye and has since made a full recovery.

The worker’s employer, South Lanarkshire Council, were prosecuted at Hamilton Sheriff Court today.

HSE investigators found the incident was the result of a combination of inadequate risk assessment, lack of a safe system of work, and failure to provide adequate information, instruction, supervision and training.

The court heard that the Council failed to follow its own protocols by not obtaining service plans before the work started.

The Council had a safe system of work document but its main weakness was a lack of awareness of what services existed in the trench. Had drawings been obtained, they would have shown three buried cables crossing the route of the trench, two of which were high voltage.

South Lanarkshire Council pleaded guilty to safety breaches and was fined £35,000.

HSE Inspector Mark Carroll, said: “South Lanarkshire Council understood the risks of striking underground services during excavation works and yet still failed to implement its own recommended system of work for identifying and avoiding buried services.

“When combined with insufficient training for employees involved in excavation works, this resulted in two of its employees suffering electrical burns.”

Lighthouse Comments: Underground cables are a serious concern as over the years many cables were laid without monitoring its position or without laying warning layers. As a result cables can be found on the strangest places and in the strangest configuration. Underground cables are often found by mistake and proper control measures need to be in place to prevent occurrences of this nature.


NEBOSH General Certificate 29 July 2013

July 4th, 2013[Comments Off on NEBOSH General Certificate 29 July 2013]

The NEBOSH General Certificate in Occupational Safety and Health is considered to be the premier safety qualification at Level 3. It gives a sound grounding to candidates who wish to either further their knowledge in the subject or pursue a career as a Safety Professional.

Our course starting on the 29th July, which leads into 6th September 2013 exams, still has places available. Why not call our friendly staff to discuss whether this course would suit your requirements. Our pass rate is over 90%, which alone speaks volumes. So, to maximise your chances of passing, Lighthouse is a safe place.

NEBOSH General Certificate – Rainham Kent – September Exams

June 17th, 2013[Comments Off on NEBOSH General Certificate – Rainham Kent – September Exams]

With our pass rate still in the high 90% margins, if you or someone you know is thinking of attending the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH) General Certificate course, then Lighthouse is the sensible choice.

Our lead tutor is a NEBOSH Examiner of some years experience, he knows how this course should be taught. They spend time coaching candidates, not only the approach to take with regards to exam success, but on how to apply what is being taught to real work time scenarios, so people leave the course with the confidence on how to use the information in the real world.

We run our courses slightly longer than most providers, as doing so maximises the opportunity of a first time pass. Coupled with what we believe are realistic charges, this really is the informed choice. The course includes two separate weeks’ classroom tuition, followed by a full mock exam and two days revision based on the exam’s findings. The final course day is then the actual exam day.

Charges are £1030 + VAT which are fully inclusive of exam and certification fees, course workbooks, course revision notes, exam success notes and a light lunch and refreshments throughout each day.

So why entrust anyone else with your NEBOSH course, Lighthouse have got to be the most practical and realistic approach.

PS: Coming soon the NEBOSH Construction & NEBOSH Fire Certificates
