Restoration of report definitions and more

The Working Environment Authority

After inspections on  25 February and 3 March 2014 by the Working Environment Authoriry  we were ordered to solve the following problems:
1) To ensure proper use of lathes in the metal workshop
2) To ensure proper use of the orange rock saw
3) To prevent the risk of accidents when transporting pressure cylinders from the depot into the building
The first two problems have been resolved. The third problem should be resolved before 1 January 2015 and probably will be in connection with the upcoming reconstruction of the house. A temporary solution: Use an alternative route from the gas depot to avoid the steep part of the parking lot. Also, two personsit are recommended for handling of  a cylinder. For more information, contact Charlotte Rasmussen.
