  • Counting the costs of chemical incidents

    The consequences of a lack of control when using chemical substances in the workplace are well known and apparent.  Any health and safety expert can tell you of at least one major accident whereby poor chemical management policies and procedures have lead to disaster.  Examples include Bhopal, Grangemouth, Flixborough, Seveso and more recently, Buncefield.  Major accidents like ...

  • Put energy into emission control projects

    Many companies feel pressured to spend the least amount possible to meet environmental regulations, primarily because compliance isn’t a profit generating endeavor. What some environmental and compliance managers fail to realize is that emission control equipment can quickly become a profit decreasing endeavor with this penny wise-pound foolish approach. With mandatory greenhouse gas (GHG) ...

  • Rectify dry cycling of gas boilers and reduce energy costs by 25%

    Building engineers, energy and facilities managers tend to overlook that many gas boilers waste energy through dry cycling when they are not actively contributing to the building heating and hot water demand. It is often thought that existing building management systems (BMS) and building energy management systems (BEMS) are optimising the boilers to remove dry cycling. However, the BMS is ...
