Because Health & Safety is everyone’s business: ISO 45001

Tuesday 22nd May 2018

In March 2018, amidst the worst snowfalls the UK has yet seen, a keenly awaited new standard was published. ISO 45001:2018 is the world’s first International Standard for Occupational Health and Safety (OH&S), and replaces its British predecessor OHSAS 18001. Why the change? An international standard was needed, to address working conditions, workplace injury and […]




Reducing the cyber-crime landscape: Let the baddies show themselves up

Thursday 5th October 2017

This week, the news is full of Rt Hon Amber Rudd MP’s so-called ‘rant’ against tech firms. She’s demanded that ‘Silicon Valley had to do more to help the authorities access messages on end-to-end encrypted services like WhatsApp.’ Rt Hon Amber Rudd MP stated that she doesn’t want ‘back doors’ installed in encryption codes.

ISO standards as a lingua franca

Friday 11th August 2017

Bring two people together who don’t speak the same language and they are mutually incomprehensible. Little, if anything, can be achieved.

“My mind is constantly going.

ISO 45001: live long and prosper

Monday 20th June 2016

John F Kennedy once said: ‘Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.’ Heck, that man could deliver a line. But there’s more to his words than political spin. They’re relevant today, and every day – especially in business. Every business […]




Health and Safety – take your home to work with you

Friday 20th May 2016

‘Health and Safety’. It’s the butt of stand-up comedians and broadcasters everywhere. The phrase is usually accompanied by a theatrical roll of the eyes, with maybe a bad Cockney accent thrown in for good measure. We blame it for nonsensical decisions, extra work and red tape – anything that spoils a bit of fun. ‘Elf […]
