HSM July/August Magazine available online

07 August 2013

HSM's July/August magazine is now available to read online at www.hsmsearch.com and it contains a special supplement on the hottest topics in health and safety training.

According to Arco, improved training techniques and a greater choice of courses are leading to a rise in the number of enquiries into workplace training. Online learning is also gaining in popularity but Evac+Chair International warns readers that this is no substitute for practical training in emergency evacuation.

Advice on how to tackle work-related conflict and violence is provided by Maybo, and Sabre Safety explains how it has helped to develop a new and internationally recognised standard in H2S (hydrogen sulfide) training.

Elsewhere in the magazine, standards are scrutinised: Capital Safety's EMEA president Brad Gates gives his views on how the legislative landscape for work at height can be improved; RoSPA's Roger Bibbings discusses the new ISO 39001 standard to improve road traffic safety and the BSIF's Frank Angear looks at the process by which safety standards are drafted and revised – and finds it wanting.

In 2008, public services infrastructure provider Amey became the first organisation in its sector to introduce a formal ‘staff wellbeing programme' and five years on we look how other workplaces can benefit from the insights gained.

On top of all this, Uvex identifies the latest trends in hand protection and Daniel Murray from Alexandra discusses some of the latest developments in PPE. Big Foot Systems also looks at the evolution of safe access equipment. 

As always you can find the latest industry news inside, as well as innovative products and services.

We hope you enjoy the issue!
