Hello and welcome to the launch issue of Tomorrow’s Health & Safety – you won’t believe how nice it is to write that!
Together, with the rest of the team, I’ve been working hard to bring you the latest news, legislation, products and advice, all neatly packaged in this online format – so you can find the information you need at the click of a button.
This issue is our Work Environment issue – looking at Cleaning & Hygiene, Emergency Evacuations, Fire Safety & Electrical Safety and Working at Height.
I’ve particularly enjoyed speaking with the experts on a number of topics; including the collective news from the members of the Access Industry Forum, a warning from the BSIF on fake PPE and why St John Ambulance believes that first aid in the workplace should be a benefit, not a burden.
I really hope you enjoy this issue and you’ll keep us posted with your news and opinion. Don’t forget to check out our Tomorrow’s Products section – for the latest and greatest products available at the moment – and our 10 Questions with an industry professional.
Thank you for reading, take care and stay safe.
For the launch issue of Tomorrow’s Health and Safety, I focused my attention on Cleaning and Hygiene.
First up, we have cleaning giants Diversey, who stress the importance of keeping your floors clean and tidy during the winter months. No-one wants an accident or injury claim on their hands, or worse, for it to happen to them! Truvox and Activeion also make appearances, discussing all things cleaning from your daytime regime, to the use of chemicals in some cleaning products. Finally, we have Kevin Ager, the Technical Sales Director of DAS Business Furniture, discussing how occupational density in our place of work can have a lasting effect on our health.
I really hope you enjoy this section, and the rest of the magazine. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any suggestions for our next issue!

Now that the nights are darker and the air is cooler, we may have all become reacquainted with our winter wardrobes, the cosy
fireplace, and Christmas decorations. But I bet we are all extra careful over Winter keeping an eye on the fire and switching off the festive lights at night – just in case.
Well, this isn’t all that dissimilar to the workplace, and regardless of the time of year, Fire & Electrical Safety is an area that is always best dealt with now rather than later.
So, to make sure we’re all up to scratch, this issue I’ve included the latest on Electrical Compliance regarding BS7671, a piece on why you could face a manslaughter charge if you aren’t prepared for kitchen fire, and an insight into avoiding electric shocks in the workplace.
I hope you enjoy and learn something new.
