Case Studies

"In my role as Equipment Manager, I have used the services of Shawcity for ten years for all of our gas monitor calibrations, services and repairs. The service engineers are always happy to answer queries and take time to talk me through issues over the phone. I find the whole Shawcity team extremely friendly and efficient. Nothing ever seems too much trouble, even when under pressure and working to tight deadlines."

What does getting the UK back to work mean for H&S Professionals?

More and more businesses are now reopening or preparing to reopen as the coronavirus lockdown starts to ease in the UK. This has involved considerable effort from employers, most of whom have had to completely transform the way that they operate and introduce extensive health and safety protocols specific to COVID-19.
With these considerations at the forefront for employers and employees alike, what are the questions we should be asking of our health and safety professionals during this return-to-work phase?
Daily Mask Fit Checks: Filling the Void Between Mask Fit Tests

Mask Fit Testing is required by every major respiratory protection standard globally. The purpose is to ensure that adequate training has been provided for respirator wearers with proper sizing, mask options and comfort assessments during the test.
The Advantages of CNP When Fit Testing

With Fit Testing and RPE such a hot topic currently, a growing number of RPE wearers are now switching to reusable, half- or full-mask models. Reasons for this decision include leaving more disposable products free as resources for key workers, as well as being a more sustainable and environmentally friendly solution.Long-established in the USA, controlled negative pressure (CNP) technology is now fast becoming a preferred method of fit testing in the UK because it is ideal for half- and full-mask testing and is referenced in the HSE INDG479 guidance on RPE fit testing.
EH40 Version 4 – what’s hot, and what’s definitely not!

On the 17th Jan 2020, the fourth version of EH40 was released to the public to minimal fanfare. This document is the ultimate referral guide to those working with substances considered hazardous to health, as it informs you of the maximum exposure limit of a substance specifically present in the air.
Area Gas Detection Monitoring

Across many applications and industries, area and boundary gas monitoring is vital for health and safety in measuring exposure for local residential areas or businesses. In construction, including brownfield and remediation work, many sites will be expected to measure gases emitted from contaminated sites to ensure sites boundary limits set by either the Environmental Agency and/or local authorities are not exceeded.
