k4mrc Posted October 21, 2008 Report Share Posted October 21, 2008 just an idea, recently i have had a couple of visits from insurers and solicitors investigating accidents, it brought to mind a possible idea for a machine company that might be of interest to many people like myself who have staff etc; this might already be out there, but if it is, it isnt advertised. the idea is to have a annual service with in mind a certificate to say all is well, and a manual with all necessary work ammendmants and faults remedied etc, this would then act as a useful tool if any serious accidents happened and stop any insurance claim that might follow. i am sure large companies already have something similar in place, but to smaller firms who cannot keep up with legistration/red tape as we all put certain things back to do at a later date - it could make life an allful lot safer and better for us all. i know that we have shoe repair machines/key machines/engraving machines and everything else, but along with pats testing that we all are supposed to do annually there really isnt the time, and to keep all machinery tested serviced etc, this is something an engineer who does know his stuff could spot small problems and make them not become large ones! i am sure there is a way forward with these things in mind, i have recently made a training manual for my shop with simple things in to say a member of staff has been trained on something, where as if i had not and there was a problem the courts want to see proof of training and if this service/maintenance manual was presented it would stop a lot of claims that are trickling in these days.
