What will wellbeing look like in a workplace dominated by insecurity, gig work and intelligent machines?

British Safety Council says our understanding of changing risks to health, safety and wellbeing needs to improve, in a new report about the future of work

The public debate on the future of work has centred so far on the likely shape of the workplace and its implications for both employers and employees. There has been far less focus on what this might mean for workers’ health, safety and wellbeing. When wellbeing has been considered, the discussion has centred on the present, rather than preparing us for the challenges of the future. Yet, the impact of automation on the workplace will be more fundamental than is commonly understood, with 11 million jobs predicted to be lost in the next 20 years in the UK. As we are already seeing with some ‘gig’ working, (Read More)

Everything you need to know about how an explosion arise and how to protect your plant

An explosion is based on the availability of oxygen from the air, a source of ignition and a combustible substance. In the event of a dust explosion, the distribution of dust is another factor.

However, not every dust-air mixture is explosive. What matters is the mixing ratio. Specific explosion limits have been identified for every common type of dust, and within those limits you can expect an explosive mixing ratio. (Read More)
