We have just completed another successful FSC Chain of Custody Certification Audit by BM Trada. Chain of Custody certification is essential for businesses seeking to access environmentally and socially aware markets and to demonstrate compliance with public and private procurement policies that specify environmentally responsible materials.
Occupational Health Research:
We currently support the HSE in their efforts to research how wood exposure affects workers on construction sites. The Health and Safety Laboratory (The Laboratory behind the HSE) have been monitoring wood dust exposure on sites and looking into the benefits of control measures currently available like tool extraction.
Wood Safety Group:
We will be hosting the next meeting of the Wood Safety Group (WSG) in March. Members of the Wood Safety Group come from wide ranging sectors of the woodwork industry supported by the HSE and HSL. The WSG sets out good working practice and helps write and support industry guidance.
