COVID-19 has bid us a happy new year by staying close – far too close to us.  We are back in lockdown, and the infection numbers are through the roof – what a sobering thud back to earth after our meagre, but desperately longed-for Christmas. Yet, we know that there’s help on the horizon with new vaccines, and we must focus on that as a way out of this situation. Normality will ...

As we approach the end of 2020, one might well breathe a long sigh of relief while waving farewell to this very strange and tough year. All over the world our lives changed in ways we had never foreseen because of the global pandemic. We've had to learn how to work and live very differently, accepting isolation from one another, worrying about the survival of our businesses, be ...

One might argue that there hasn’t been much to be happy about recently – in fact, for most of 2020.  The pandemic has really put a different complexion on things, from the way we look at health, to a new-found appreciation of our normal liberties to do as we like, be with whomever, when we want. However, despite the obvious challenges, it reminds me about the importance of hap ...

Keeping calm in business I can’t help but think of Kipling right now. As a nation, we face the most challenging public crisis since the Second World War. Our grandparents are probably thinking, this is just a walk in the park - we survived Spanish flu and the Blitz. However, generations X, Y and Z are probably feeling very differently indeed. Needless to say, all of us in the ...

Learning on the evolution trail 2020 is still relatively new and I’m thinking about change and times ahead.  I’ve also been considering the lifespan of SiteZone proximity warning system (pws) to date and how it has evolved.  I had a poignant conversation with a client recently about this very aspect and unique feature about SiteZone. Very aptly, it was while we were discussing ...

What a year it’s been here in the UK. No matter what industry you’re in, the general climate has been full of ups and downs. Brexit continues to raise questions and causes dissention. World leaders disagree vociferously, and climate change triggers alarm and inspires revolutionary change on our planet. However, for us at the SiteZone HQ in our corner of Dorset, we look back on ...

I was heartened to hear that stress at work is going to be 'inspected' by the Health & Safety Executive under new criteria set out by their Management Standards.   I’ve broached the topic of stress at work in some of my previous blog posts. We deal with a work-related safety hazard that can cause a great amount of worry among plant and vehicle operators, who are concerned a ...

This summer, the latest statistics from the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) on workplace fatalities were released for 2018/2019. While we have had a lot to be heartened about in recent years regarding improved safety performance in the UK, all it takes is a little slip to interrupt positive progress. The new HSE figures report that 147 people were fatally injured in the UK ...

On the 14th of October 2019, SiteZone celebrates its 10th anniversary. What an exciting 10 years it has been for me and the SiteZone Safety team. When we began our journey, as OnGrade, the development of SiteZone had just one primary goal: to prevent workers from getting accidentally run over by plant vehicles at work.  The original focus still stands, but along the way our as ...
