The whitepaper - Are you getting the maximum benefits out of your


head protection? - reviews the vital importance of head protection for workers, and covers themes including the history of head protection, developing head protection, why comfort is “key”, understanding different environments and applications, key legislation to be aware of, the benefits of great head protection - going beyond just physical safety and how to embed a safety awareness culture. MSA’s Jim Cliff comments: “The whitepaper explores insights gleaned from industry professionals - all with the aim of encouraging workers to actually wear their safety helmets.” gb.msasafety.com


EARNINGS DOWN FOR ELECTRICIANS AS VIRUS BITES


E


arnings for self-employed electricians decreased by nearly 10 per cent last


month as coronavirus hit the construction industry. Weekly pay averaged at £1,086 in March, down from £1,205 in February, according to the latest figures from Hudson Contract. The Government imposed a wide-ranging


social and economic lockdown on March 23 but said the construction sector can continue to work under new site procedures developed by the Construction Leadership Council. Ian Anfield, managing director of Hudson


Contract, said: “Our thoughts first and foremost are with those electricians and families whose health and finances have been affected by this terrible virus. We are closely monitoring the impact of coronavirus on the wider industry through our bellwether pay trends survey and are sharing our insights with the Bank of England so policymakers are best placed to respond to the rapidly changing situation. hudsoncontract.co.uk


TENDED LAUNCHES SOCIAL DISTANCING TECHNOLOGY S


afety tech company Tended has launched a wearable with social distancing technology. Through a range of proprietary social distancing solutions, including IoT hardware, AI


and reporting tools, Tended aims to accelerate the transition back to safe working across a range of industries, rolling its wearable out to those working in construction, manufacturing, infrastructure and logistics. Arup will provide independent and objective support to companies seeking to trial


Tended’s technology, offering tailored services to review the suitability of Tended’s technology against other options, and where appropriate, to manage technology implementation and scaling. Drawing on deep experience in technology trials and rollouts, and its breadth of technical specialists working across all aspects of the built environment, Arup will help companies and their employees navigate the complex barriers that projects of this scale and urgency will face. Using its existing wearable safety solution paired with an ultra-wideband proximity sensor, Tended can automatically notify workers if they come within a two-meter distance of each other, with the aim of getting businesses back up and running during this crucial time. The solution is made up of three elements, Tended’s


existing safety wearable, an ultra-wideband proximity sensor and a smartphone. Companies set the minimum separation distance they want to enforce, and the wearable will notify employees in real-time if they come close to this distance and to move away. tended.io
