Cost Saving in Recessionary Times

There is no doubt that financially, we are all in for a rough time over the coming months. Expenditure will be questioned; income will be analysed.

Now there is a positive side to this scenario which hopefully will be less grim than the picture painted here for most of us. This is a time to take stock...

When Access To Instant Information Could Save Lives

Time is running out for the non-domestic property owners with new duties under the Control of Asbestos at Work Regulations 2002. With deaths exceeding 5000 per year in the UK from asbestos related diseases, the UK government have acted to protect the most at risk; maintenance workers and anyone who has the potential to disturb asbestos unknowingly.
