After at least two years of budget cuts, job losses and economic doom and gloom, it would seem that we still have a way to go before starting an upward trend.
Our customers tell us that Health and Safety, Construction and Asbestos Management seem to be the budgets that are being hit hardest. In addition to this, local government have still not made all the cuts internally to satisfy the Government's requirements.
At Ai Solutions, we believe we can help, particularly within CDM and Asbestos Management. By implementing ToolKit CS™ you can actively demonstrate that you are managing the process and you can do it with fewer resources. In addition to this, by using our hosted solution, you can cut costs on your IT overheads, as our current customers can testify.
If you would like to know more about what we do, please give a member of the team a call on 01525 850080 or email us at email@example.com
Under 'fee for intervention', costs would be recovered from the start of the intervention where a material breach of duty was identified up to the point where HSE's intervention in supporting businesses to put matters right had concluded. No costs would apply for purely technical breaches and compliant duty holders would pay nothing.

The September 2011 workshop is being held at our offices in Leighton Buzzard on Tuesday 13th September. If you have not booked your place then give a member of the team a call on 01525 850080.
This is the last session of the year and we will be going through the changes in the latest release. If you are the Systems Administrator of ToolKit CS™ we suggest you attend so that you are able to support your users once the release is in place.
We are beginning to see more and more investment into 'sustainable' energy sources. We noted (BBC News) that the work on Ormonde Wind Farm off Barrow is now complete. Not your normal construction project, but quite complex and with the potential to save money and our planet.
We are sure there will be more of these types of works over the coming years, which may or may not prove to be good news!
There is some interesting advice on the HSE web site on the 'Are you a principal contractor?' page.
It states what you should be doing as well as offering advice on what you need to know regarding workforce engagement and contractor engagement.
We regularly receive updates from our customers and contacts about changes to legislation, the latest rumours and so on. We try to be selective with what we pass on and acknowledge our sources as appropriate. If you have information of general interest in the Health & Safety, and particularly, CDM and Asbestos Management arena, then please let us know by e-mail if possible.
