As millions of employees begin returning to work without mandatory social distancing and mask wearing, maintaining a safe ‘new normal’ is at the front of everyone’s minds. While no longer legally required, the Government has recommended continuing to limit contact numbers, proximity and duration to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission. To support those returning at work, Casella, expert manufacturer of smart monitoring technology, is offering a 20% discount on its smart wearable Orbi-Trace tag, designed to simplify social distancing and keep employees safe.
ASAP UK is among the first to follow the new process for Grade I Medical Device registration
Changes in the law post – Brexit regarding the registration of medical devices mean manufacturers, distributors and importers must follow new rules and guidelines. ASAP UK has already created all the necessary product technical files and is working towards meeting the requirements for registration under the new law; the company aims to be among the first to achieve this.
The Medicines and Medical Devices Act 2021, which dictates how the UK medical technology industry is regulated post – Brexit, came into effect on 1st January 2021; a key change is that the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) is now solely responsible for registering medical devices for the UK market.
It is estimated that every 30 seconds, somewhere in the world, one worker dies as a result of exposure to hazardous substances. It is an employer’s duty to protect employee health through surveillance and exposure monitoring.2 Global workplace hazard monitoring expert Casella is offering a free Flow Detective™ Plus calibrator with the purchase of its VAPex Pro or Apex2 Plus/Pro kits to improve air sampling accuracy and traceability and, ultimately, keep the workforce safe.
The Flow Detective™ Plus is an electronic air flow meter calibrator, designed to measure the flow of air sampling pumps to within 2% accuracy. This robust solution can calibrate within airflows of 20mL/min to 5,000 mL/min to ensure correct flow. Compatible with Casella’s pioneering Airwave App and Bluetooth connectivity, calibration results can be sent via email, ensuring improved traceability and pump calibration procedures.
Asbestos-related diseases take the lives of 20 tradespeople every week. Despite being banned in the UK, asbestos can still be found in older homes and industrial properties built between the 1950s and 70s, posing a threat to anyone who disturbs the dangerous material.
Global occupational hygiene and workplace hazard monitoring expert Casella has launched the Vortex3, the most innovative high flow pump on the market, designed to simplify asbestos and air sampling.
What is site boundary monitoring, and where is it used?
Site boundary or ‘fence line’ monitoring is used widely on construction sites and other high-risk locations including demolition projects, mines and quarries and environmental remediation sites. Boundary monitoring units are set up on the exterior perimeter of the worksite to monitor for potential hazards that might cause compliance issues for the site, or present a health risk to workers and site neighbours. It’s an essential part of the safety and risk management ecosystem of these sites, and helps control and mitigate potential environmental, health, and reputational risks.
SUCO Ex pressure switches have earned a worldwide reputation over the past decades. In addition to reliability and safety, the unique features include a compact design and excellent price-performance ratio as well as many approvals for a wide range of demanding applications.
Protection during the loading and unloading operations of liquids and dry inert material.
The GRDE-4200 electronic earthing system help to prevent fire and explosions in areas with hazardous levels of static electricity when trucks or trains load and unload liquids and dry materials.
Filling, dispensing, transporting and tipping materials into vehicles or containers generates static electricity simply through the movement of the material being processed or handled.
The charge level is greater for poorly conductive solvents flowing through plastic pipes. Furthermore, a fast flow or large amounts of air bubbles flowing through the pipe can amplify the static electricity.
Workers and businesses have never been more aware of the need for positive occupational hygiene culture than they are as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. There has been an unprecedented effect on businesses – in Q2 of 2020, over 32,000,000 working days were lost as a result of Covid-19 related absences, translating into a cost of over £4 billion to UK businesses. The challenge industry now faces in reopening is balancing worker health, the concerns of employee and legal and legislative responsibility around operating a ‘Covid secure’ workplace.
In a first for Atexor’s SLAM® portable ATEX work light portfolio, the new Hornet 1LED 12V supports exceptionally low voltages. New electronics give the Hornet 1LED 12V a supply voltage range of 9 to 15 Volts, as well as under and overvoltage protection. Hornet 1LED 12V ATEX is the solution when you need to use the lowest available voltage.
Enerpac has introduced the SafeT Torque Lock, an innovative and user-friendly safety tool that transforms Enerpac square drive torque wrenches allowing hands-free bolting operation. The SafeT Torque Lock improves worker safety by minimising exposure to pinch points and high-pressure hydraulic connections. It can also be used in any orientation including inverted positions, thus reducing the possibility of tool slippage and operator fatigue.
