Safety at work tips and tricks

When I was asked by SHEilds NEBOSH training providers to talk about health and safety at work, I thought it was a brilliant idea – it’s all about keeping safe and happy in all areas of life isn’t it?

The average person spends alot of time at work, after all.  Going about your daily work, rushing around, sometimes on auto-pilot can mean that we get clumsy, miss spotting trip-hazards or we think someone will see the bag that you always put down next to your desk.

Watch out for the near-miss

I’ve known of ‘near misses’ when someone has almost tripped on a bag handle that has found its way into a walkway.  That bag might always be put there day in, day out and everyone knows it’s there… until  someone new comes along or someone’s carrying something and they can’t see it.

Never assume

Never assume that someone knows an object is there just because that’s where you always put it before you flick the kettle on for your morning cuppa!

Oh and don’t you just love your morning cuppa?!  Whether it’s a nice strong coffee or a, “tea, 2 sugars please!”

Why not pop it in a travel mug, with a secure lid?  It’ll keep it hot for longer and prevent the dreaded spillage all over the keyboard and electrics!  Since doing exactly that, I’m a convert to my ‘travel cup’ with secure lid and my one with a straw for my water and juice.  A little bit of liquid goes a long way.  Trust me, I know!

An accident waiting to happen?

And those computer leads under the desk?  Yeah they’ve been like that for ages.  They’ll be okay.  I know they’re there because when I stretch my legs out, I get tangled up!  But spare a thought for the person who doesn’t know those cables are there…  Quite a hazard, getting tangled up in electrical cables.

This all applies in any workspace, including if you work from home.  There are still all of these going on in the average home workspace.  And now it’s clear to see why it’s so important to #StaySafeatWork

Lifting Your Mood With The Right Lighting

Lighting can make all the difference to the mood of a room when you’re looking to update and modernise your living or office space.  It’s worth considering switching to LED lighting and it couldn’t be easier.  Especially when you choose somewhere like www.thelightingsuperstore.co.uk.

Much like ‘traditional’ bulbs, LEDs can be dimmed and come to fit all shapes and sizes of fittings and fixtures.  There’s something to suit all moods and size of space.

How To Lift Your Mood With The Right Lighting For More Positive Thinking

Somewhere to relax or revitalise

Whether you’re looking for somewhere to relax your mind or somewhere to revitalise, you can relax knowing that in the long-run you will be saving on your energy bill.

The dimmable LEDs are a fantastic tool to create your chosen atmosphere all year round because as the nights draw in and out, you can still create a cosy feel by dimming in and out.  These infographics helps to show the benefits to the environment (and your pocket) and the versatility of LEDs.


Feel the difference

The difference a well-lit room makes to your mood really can be amazing.  Not many people want a bright, starkly lit space when they’re trying to relax.  Ending the day on a calming note can really make a huge difference to a good night’s sleep and therefore a good, positive start to a new day.

It’s #LEDeasy to create the right mood.

Days out that are fun and educational

Days out that are fun and educational

Some days you can’t just sit around watching TV, you’ve got to get out, and take the kids for days out. It’s not hard finding fun things to do, but what about keeping their brain invested too? Rossall School have a few ideas that should tick both boxes as being fun, educational days out.

Zoo/Aquarium/Safari

Who doesn’t love animals? What better way to celebrate than by going to see a host of exotic beasts up close you wouldn’t normally see at home. There are plenty of dotted around the country, but how about Longleat Safari Park?  It’s the perfect example of a great day out; there is plenty to do around the grounds, see animal shows such as birds on display, chances to hold reptiles and see all the creepy crawlies up close, then finish it off by getting in your car and driving round the actual safari part, getting up-close and personal with the bigger, more impressive creatures.

Museum

Museums aren’t all just old paintings (not that there is anything wrong with that), but it’s not a bad idea to educate the kids in some famous artwork to encourage their creativity. There are loads of different exhibitions on offer, from Ancient Egypt, to dinosaurs to science and technology. There’s no limit to the amount of stuff, often all under the same roof. A perfect way to spend an afternoon and usually free entry!

Castles

There are literally hundreds of castles dotted around the UK.  They are a big part of our history but a good day out is the Northumberland Coastal Route where there are a bunch of castles still in good condition. There’s Bamburgh which is right by the beach, Warkworth, more ruins now and Alnwick, which has been used in a few films including a little known movie called Harry Potter. It also has a fantastic epic tree house and gardens where the kids can learn all different kinds of plants and flowers and there’s even a poisonous plants guided tour section.

Beamish

Speaking of the North East, there is also this brilliant open air museum which is practically a whole town frozen in time. Three times to be precise; The 1820s, 1900s and the 1940s. You can explore what life was like during those times with shops, farms, schools, blacksmiths (with a working blacksmith) and even doctors, dentists and the best part, a sweet shop where you can watch old-fashioned treats being made right in front of you. The staff play in character and can provide information about their respective roles and era.
