Make a safe start to 2018
The feedback following the launch of StructureSafe has been overwhelmingly positive from members (and non-members) so what better way to kick-start 2018 than by ensuring you and your team are trained ready for the season ahead.
StructureSafe has been designed to help everyone, including temporary staff, acquire the key knowledge for working safely on-site. Arranged in four modules the course has interactive activities throughout and upon successful completion of a short test, you will be rewarded with a RoSPA approved certificate.
With StructureSafe there is no need to send staff away for training or bring trainers in – it can be taken anytime and anywhere there is an internet connection.
Many forget how important training really is. Keeping people safe is the number one priority and many prosecutions from the Health and Safety Executive cite lack of training.
So there is no need to take the risk, click here

New inspection criteria and 2017 results
MUTA’s Inspection Process has recently been updated following a full year of inspections and member feedback. The new criteria is much more refined and clearly outlines what constitutes as a score of 0, 1, 2 or 3 for each area inspected.
Don’t forget that members are expected to achieve at least a score of 2 (compliant) and an inspection that scores 2 across all items (i.e. 66%) is perfectly acceptable. Those members that go “above and beyond” can expect to score 3 (best practice) for some items.
192 inspections were conducted in 2017 and here are the results:
- Premises inspection average score – 60% (highest 87%, lowest 25%)
- On-site inspection average score – 75% (highest 93%, lowest 48%)
The organisation that received the lowest premises score has had their membership cancelled as they failed to meet the required standards (including statutory requirements).
Congratulations to those members that are working hard to continually raising industry standards, we look forward to seeing further improvements to your inspection scores in 2018.

Following requests from members, MUTA have created a guidance note concerning what actions could be taken in the event of a lightning strike.
Despite much information being available regarding lightning storms, there is no definitive answer on what course of action must be taken. The information included within the guidance note may help to reduce the risk.
