Prayer of the Lab Manager
I’m an Atheist but I did go to 13 years of Catholic School so this is the default setting sometimes in my brain….
The Prayer of the Lab Manager
God Grant me the knowledge to fix the things I can,
the courage to confront those who misbehave
and the authority to scare the living shit out of everyone!
MVH Liaison Health and Safety
RAFT’s Laboratory Manager/Health and Safety Officer Khwaja is responsible for overseeing the running of RAFT’s laboratories, ensuring our scientists are working in a safe environment.
He recently attended Mount Vernon Hospital’s Health and Safety meeting and here are a few snippets.
“This quarterly meeting takes place in the Post Graduate Centre in Mount Vernon Hospital. All Health and Safety representatives for the department attend. This includes, Nurses, Managers and Health and Safety personnel of Hillingdon Hospital NHS Trust. The Chair person is the main Health and Safety advisor for Hillingdon Hospital.
I look forward to attending this meeting, as it provides an opportunity to gain knowledge of issues regarding health and safety on site. It is also an avenue for open and frank discussion of the lack or need to improve the service on site, as well as receiving free advice on health and safety.
The main topics for discussion are: Fire, Asbestos and Health & Safety. Sometimes other issues of importance are also discussed, i.e. car park issues on site which is big problem on MVH. The duration of the meeting is one hour.”
