How Health and Safety Conscious Are You?Posted by administrator

Health and safety is everywhere – and although at times it can feel that the world has gone health and safety mad, the construction industry has some very real dangers and it is imperative that the rules and regulations are followed.
There were a staggering 27.3 million working days lost due to workplace injury and work-related illnesses in the year of 2014/15 – and this really shouldn’t be happening! Here at Spacelink, we take safety precautions very seriously and this is why we always ensure our team conduct a full site survey in order to avoid potentially fatal incidents from occurring.
A recent example of how things can take a drastic turn for the worse within a warehouse environment was brought to light last month in Shropshire when a worker was the victim of a huge racking collapse – leaving him trapped for eight hours under 4,000 tonnes of cheese! Amazingly, he was rescued and survived this incredibly traumatic ordeal.
If the correct health and safety regulations are not followed it could result in some serious injuries to employees, clients or even the general public – so there is absolutely no room for error. And, if the risk of death wasn’t enough – the huge pay outs for medical bills and compensation could very realistically put any company out of business!
We ensure every single person involved in one of our projects is kept safe at all times and that each rule and regulation in our Health and Safety Policy is followed.

Having only one meeting room can often cause difficulties and frustrations when two meetings are scheduled in at the same time and this is where operable walls can really come in handy and prove to be extremely efficient. When in use, they create a structural wall splitting up a room and when they are no longer required they can be folded or stacked against the wall to give back the original open space.
Many offices don’t get refurbished for many years after they’re first completed, so 2017 may be the year that your office deserves a well-earned refurb, even if it is just a lick of paint! There’s nothing better than kick-starting the new year with a brand new looking office ready to get back into the swing of things after the festivities. Companies often have a business plan for the year ahead and if you’re planning on growing yours,
Having an area in the workplace to go during breaks and lunch hour has many benefits for both employees and employers. It is important to have some time during the working day to switch off from work and reboot, ‘A study of office workers and managers by Staples discovered that even though 66 percent of employees spend more than eight hours a day at work, more than a quarter of them don’t take a break other than lunch.
For many office workers, sitting at a desk all day typing away on a keyboard and looking into a computer screen seems to take up the majority of their working hours! For this reason, among others, it is extremely important to provide a working environment that keeps employees feeling happy and uplifted – helping to improve productivity and boost company morale.
