Why monitor dust in the workplace?

Why monitor dust in the workplace?
In most places of employment there can be a potential threat to health and safety from airborne particulates and aerosols. It is important to note, however, that dust hazards are not necessarily visible to the human eye and that the finest particles can represent the greatest threat because of their ability to travel deepest into the lungs. Effective monitoring is therefore key to the implementation of an effective risk management strategy.

The potential of the 'plastic tax'
Europeans urgently need to find another solution, because of the ban on imports of European plastic waste impeded by China at the beginning of 2018. The EU commission, for example, is considering a ‘plastics tax’. An EU directive against lightweight plastic carrier bags has already contributed to a reduction of consumption in many countries. Until 2030, all packaging in the EU ought to be reusable and made of recyclable materials.

Learning how to weld

Learning how to weld
The construction of the London Underground is often considered an engineering marvel, but we often forget the little miracles that happen on a day to day basis. Case in point - the story of a group of Transport for London (TfL) maintenance engineers who journeyed in the summer to Hertfordshire’s ultra-modern Learn to Weld Technical Training Centre (TTC) with no welding knowledge whatsoever, and returned to London as qualified welders. And this was all completed within one week.
