How far has modern Plant Machinery come?

Modern machinery as we know it has come a long way. Necessity being the mother of invention has enabled the ability for the completion of bigger civil engineering projects. From the construction of canals, roads, through to railways and modern motorways, the need to deliver projects on time and on budget has driven change. The nation’s infrastructure bears testament to the numerous changes in civil engineering and how mechanisation has improved projects. It is hard to think that the construction of Egypt’s pyramids occurred about four thousand years ago, yet it was only in the past 200 years that mechanisation…

Manchester - The City of Growth

Manchester, a city currently tormenting the masses with roadworks at every major junction. It’s also a city leading the construction boom being experienced across the North West.

Continuing on from a tremendous Aug-Nov 2018, which saw total construction output increase by almost 15% compared to Aug-Nov 2017[2], the market is showing no signs of slowing down with the number of cranes…

Using Plant in Cold Weather

Operating plant and machinery in winter is the same as running a car. It needs extra love, extra attention, and nurturing through winter. Without TLC, plant and machinery will deteriorate and productivity will considerably decline. This year, the winter months are expected to be even worse than they were last year, with news outlets reporting the UK is set for the "coldest winter in a decade." Before we delve into specifics, it must be stated that site safety is everyone’s responsibility. If you see a potentially unsafe operating condition, such as snow covering a hazard or a frozen lake, it…

Are Your Toilets Legal?

Legal toilets? Sounds like something a shifty-looking, cigar-smoking Delboy would try and sell you, “And, they flush too Rodderz!” Hiring loos is easy isn’t it? You call the hiring company, place your order and they get delivered within a few days. Job done. Unfortunately, it isn’t that simple. The law is taking a dim view on employers and site contractors who don’t provide adequate toilet facilities to workers and users, so it is vital that you implement facilities that are fully compliant. And, it isn’t the responsibility of the toilet supplier to make sure that it is compliant, it is…

A call to end modern-day slavery in construction

When you think of the term slavery, it conjures up all sorts of horrific images of inhumane acts against workers. To think it could be happening in the 21st century is hard to believe, but the hard truth is – it does and comes in many different forms other than physical abuse. The (2016) Chartered Institute of Builders (CIOB) report, Building a Fairer System: Tackling Modern Slavery in Construction Supply Chains, states, “Modern slavery appears in many guises: its most obvious forms include people trafficking and forced child labour. These clear cut examples contravene all international standards on human rights and…
