HEALTHIER GERM SEASON As part of its ongoing campaign to increase winter wellness, GOJO, THE INVENTORS OF PURELL has launched a new PURELL Winter Wellness Kit, available for businesses to purchase online.

This winter, businesses can demonstrate their commitment to the well-being of their employees and visitors – and enhance the image of their facility – by investing in the PURELL Winter Wellness Kit to


ENERGY PROVIDER Working to a tight 10-week schedule, four teams of Secom engineers completed a significant electronic security upgrade at 150 critical sites in the UK’s energy infrastructure network.

The project – covering offices as well as unstaffed remote locations – involved replacing key legacy equipment and software to create a superior platform for remote monitoring of CCTV surveillance systems. It brought the 150 sites up to the same high standards of security as the customer’s other 250-plus sites across the UK.

Phil Lamb, Secom’s General Manager of Regional Sales, explained that installation of new transmission units allowed a switch for all the customer’s sites to a more robust and cutting-edge video control platform in the alarm receiving centre.

He said: “Security is of course a major consideration for infrastructure service providers. It can be challenging because of the many remote locations needed to ensure uninterrupted delivery to

implement a proper hand hygiene system. This kit includes everything a workplace may need to get started:

• PURELL dispensing systems for common areas

• PURELL bottles for workspaces • PURELL wipes for surfaces

Not only unpleasant for the sufferer, seasonal viruses such as the common cold, influenza and norovirus are highly contagious, and can spread quickly throughout offices and other workplaces. This can have a major knock on effect on business productivity, as employees

In recent outcome studies, for Fed Ex and Medical Mutual Ohio, results proved that absenteeism due to illness was reduced by an average of 17% after implementing PURELL Hand Sanitisers in the workplace.

Chris Wakefield, Vice President, European Marketing & Product Development, GOJO Industries- Europe Ltd, commented: “As a founder member of the World Health Organization (WHO) Private Organizations for Patient Safety group, GOJO is a strong advocate of the ‘total solution’ approach to making hand hygiene second nature to everyone – this includes all offices and businesses across Europe as well as those in typical healthcare settings.

consumers nationwide.

“Reliable CCTV and alarm systems are important tools in dealing with issues that might affect continuity of supply or any other risks of compromising security or health and safety concerns if, for example, there is an unauthorised entry.”

The customer was facing a critical need as the existing transmission units had become obsolete. With the existing video management software there was a growing risk of losing connectivity with remote sites – and also, therefore, visibility of site issues.

He continued: “The decision to replace obsolete hardware and software was initiated to mitigate the

risk of major security incidents by creating a more stable platform.

“Our role was to replace the end- of-life kit with the latest generation transmission units. As Secom is the incumbent service provider, we have intimate knowledge of each site and could evade potential issues, using our engineering skills to design issues out of the tight schedule utilising detailed process maps.”

The software platform was upgraded to a multi-site video security management software application specifically designed to monitor video and audio from remote sites. TOMORROW’S FM | 09
