The Museum of Power
The Heritage Engineering Network
The Heritage Engineering Network (H.E.N.) encourages all volunteers and staff with interest in the use and management of heritage machinery to attend its meetings. The Network supports the management and delivery of specialised skills in museums and other bodies who carry out working activities with machinery in the area of industrial heritage.
This meeting on 3rd June will be a training day devoted to Health and Safety as a follow-up from our day at the Long Shop last October. The day will be led by Andre Castle (www.acersafety.co.uk). The plan for the session will be put together by Andre, but the morning is likely to be devoted to building safety, including people and fire risk. The afternoon will include plant and operation. There will be a session for attendees to see some of the engines in the museum running and to undertake some risk assessments within the museum and workshop. The reason for a Tuesday is that Tuesday is traditionally the day when the Musem of Power engineering volunteers are on site, usually about 30 of them. It will be quite a challenging day as on Sunday 1st June the museum has an event where we hope over 1000 people will be on site. But more opportunity to spot the hazards!
In addition a personal aim of the network co-ordinator, Dick Waylen, is to increase volunteer benefits across all HEN sites. This meeting will launch a HEN volunteer pass scheme that will be optional for HEN sites to sign up to. The idea is that HEN sites that sign up to the scheme, we will provide free admission for all volunteers that volunteer at other HEN sites.
As usual, please book using the form below.
