COVID-19: What next for cancelled events?

National trade fairs and exhibitions are important events for industry professionals and visitors alike to discover the latest developments, legislation, best practice, learning and knowledge-sharing as well as promote new technology and products. As we all continue to deal with the fallout of the novel Coronavirus, event organisers have had to postpone all large-scale events due to social distancing and travel restrictions; rescheduling to new dates in what promises to be a very busy autumn should they all go ahead.

For Shawcity, and many other businesses, all of our upcoming exhibitions and public-facing events until at least September 2020 have been postponed. This includes our own popular CPD one-day training courses for customers on Noise, Air Quality and Vibration in the workplace. Once we have a better understanding regarding the eventual end of lockdown we will look to reschedule these to run in Oxfordshire, Leeds and Edinburgh as planned.

Health & Safety Never Stops: A Company Update from Shawcity's Managing Director Neil O'Regan

The current climate is an ever-changing picture with daily updates and additional information which is often unclear or open to interpretation. This is causing real concerns across the many industries we work with. The situation is unlike anything any of us have experienced before and we are all learning on a daily basis how to cope, to help our friends, colleagues, families and society in general.

Unmasked: The Spotlight on RPE Intensifies
(story continued from March edition)

As the world continues to react to the COVID-19 virus, the spotlight on RPE (respiratory protective equipment) continues to grow. People going about their daily business wearing disposable masks is now commonplace, from capital cities to rural villages, and the demand for these masks has never been higher. Despite advice from key medical staff in the public eye, this type of RPE is still being donned by the general public, sometimes with little efficacy.

No Excuses, Bump Test Every Time

Today’s gas detection technology offers better protection than ever but one often-overlooked issue in the industry is the regular bump testing of instruments. Worryingly, many users are still unaware of the importance of this simple procedure or unsure how to do it. The usual recommendation is that gas detection instruments are serviced and calibrated at least once a year, depending on the technology and the manufacturer.
