This is the magic act that we have struggled to understand for three centuries. These conditions are by fault of both nature and us. Since the Industrial Revolution, we’ve been emitting large deposits of carbon dioxide into the Earth’s atmosphere, drastically heating the earth’s core, and thus creating situations we haven’t had to face since the onset of the Ice Age.  On the brink of a major climate shift, nations are searching for practical solutions. read more

With technological advancement and economic restructuring, our life has become more and more comfortable.  However, we have become less and less active in our everyday life.  This comfortable but sedentary lifestyle has made us pay a high price in health.  As the number of office workers grows, health problems such as obesity, type II diabetes mellitus, hypertension, cardiovascular diseases and osteoporosis have raised more and more concerns.  According to the findings of the “Physical Fitness Test for the Community” there are correlations between the physical fitness and the physical activity level and lifestyle of individuals.  So, we should build exercise into our daily life in order to develop an active and healthy lifestyle.

01/05/2014 More Training's Hot Topic - May 2014 - Lone Working

Lone Working   What is Lone Working? Lone working is the term used to describe an employee who will perform all or part of their role in isolation from other colleagues. This could involve an employee working off site or in a separate part of the premises, out of another colleague’s ear- shot or vision.  The health and safety executive’s definition of a lone worker is someone who “works by themselves without close or direct supervision”.   The term ‘lone worker’ is not limited to someone that works all the time by themselves. Even if someone works in a busy office or factory, they can become a lone worker when travelling for work purposes, working late or working from home. Most jobs will require lone working to a certain degree and employers have a duty to ensure that safe working practices are in place.read more
