Lifting Equipment Mind-sets

Companies such as Arrow use recycling balers to compact recycling into blocks for easy storage and transportation. However the HSE found that the way Arrow stored its bales resulted in heavy unstable loads which ultimately caused the falling cardboard. The company was convicted and fined for breaching Regulation 10(4) of the Work at Height Regulations 2005 (WAHR) and ordered to pay costs of 2,917. Under Section 33 of the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 (HSWA), it is an offence to breach any health and safety regulations. This includes the WAHR. Under Regulation 10 of the WAHR, the standards that every employer (like Arrow Recycling Ltd) must meet to avoid injury to any person are set out. These include taking suitable and sufficient steps to prevent, so far as reasonably practicable, the fall of any material or object. Subsection 4 to Regulation 10, to which Arrow Recycling pleaded, requires every employer to ensure that materials and objects are stored in such a way as to prevent risk to any person arising from the collapse, overturning or unintended movement of such materials or objects. It was this requirement that Arrow failed to meet. Whilst it did not happen here, where the HSE wants to go further it can seek to prosecute a director or similar officer of the body corporate, for an offence under any of the relevant statutory provisions (which includes the WAHR) where it is committed with the consent or connivance of, or attributable to any neglect on the part of that person. This power, contained under Section 37 of the HSWA was used to convict company director Jonathan Marshall in November last year after a self-employed contractor was fatally injured after falling through a roof light.

Pai said, "I stand with airline pilots, flight attendants, and America's flying public against the FCC's ill-conceived 2013 plan to allow people to make cell phone calls on planes. Taking it off the table permanently will be a victory for Americans across the country who, like me, value a moment of quiet at 30,000 feet." Technically, the FCC must vote on Pai's proposed order to keep the ban, yet the termination order is likely to succeed as two of the three current commissioners, including Michael O'Rielly, are against lifting the ban. Meanwhile, the third current FCC commissioner, Mignon Clyburn, reportedly supported lifting the ban. The ban was adopted by FCC back in 1991 due to concerns over cellphones on flights jamming ground-based relay stations. It was former FCC chairman Thomas Wheeler who proposed in 2013 to lift the ban, arguing that the ban had become obsolete as many airliners basically carry their own cellphone towers for in-flight entertainment . In the year 2013, the Federal Aviation Administration lifted restrictions on the use of electronic devices on flights if they wouldn't interfere with a plane's navigation equipment. Following this, the FCC was prompted to take up the matter and advance its proposed rule. Meanwhile, the Transportation Department in February 2014 sought public comment about whether to allow voice calls during flights. Bob Ross, president of the Association of Professional Flight Attendants, which represents crews at American Airlines, reportedly said, "Allowing in-flight cellphone calls was such a bad idea that it brought virtually everyone in the aviation community passengers, policymakers and flight crews, first and foremost together in opposition.
