  • Shropshire manufacturer makes its mark - Shropshire Business Today
    by the EU under the CE marking scheme He said We have supplied ladders for contractors merchants and specifiers thousands of times in our 25 year history and we have always ensured our product is of the highest quality With the CE marking approval in place we can now clearly demonstrate the quality as the ladders have met strict standards required by the EU The simple fact is that supplying or installing a ladder in a manhole chamber which isn t CE marked is illegal Knowing the change in the law could also give us an opportunity for increased sales we prepared our systems ahead of time This investment means we can verify that the product complies with all the relevant essential requirements and we believe we re the first company in the UK to be designing and producing CE marked manhole chamber ladders We are seeing a corresponding uplift in orders by contractors and specifiers keen to stay the right side of EU legislation CE marking guards against product misinformation but it also allows it to be placed legally on the market in any EU member state so we are also hoping to look at new export markets for the ladders Although introduced in 1993 CE marking for manufacturers of construction products on the UK market was only introduced in the last year FSP has supplied a variety of utility companies and other organisations with access chamber ladders including North West Water and the Highways Agency In addition to the manufacture of ladders the company also offers clients an on site ladder installation service carried out by its certified fitters SHARE Facebook Twitter tweet Previous article AGA s colourful 2m Shropshire investment Next article County hotel s new 10 000 wedding pagoda Carl Jones http 4 KA By0blG RELATED

  • Cancer care guidelines 'should have been introduced sooner' - Shropshire Business Today
    breast cancer as a result of a 12 month delay in diagnosing her when she first presented with a lump in her breast With proper assessment appropriate diagnosis and treatment her untimely death would have been avoided The new NICE guidelines encourage GPs to consider cancer as a possible diagnosis much sooner and lower the threshold for people having these important tests to make the diagnosis and ensure early treatment Under the guidelines GPs will be able to order certain tests directly avoiding the need for referral to a specialist which can cause considerable delay Another case that lawyers at Lanyon Bowdler have dealt with raised an important issue regarding the appearance of blood in urine especially for post menopausal women Beth said Even as a one off blood in urine can be an indication of cancer However it can come and go and is sometimes not visible to the naked eye In this case a post menopausal woman complained to her GP of blood in her urine Unfortunately her GP did not investigate and exclude the most serious potential cause notably cancer The GP apparently didn t appreciate the significance of the symptoms Instead she was treated for a minor ailment called vaginitis Sadly this lady died of endometrial cancer Evidence was obtained that she would have survived if her GP had referred her when she first presented to him Cases like these really highlight the need for early investigation and a high index of suspicion Both of these people would almost certainly still be alive today There are more than 300 000 new cases of cancer diagnosed each year in the UK and research shows one in three people will develop cancer in their lifetime More than 160 000 people die from cancer each year in the UK

  • Employers urged to avoid bank holiday blues - Shropshire Business Today
    decide whether employees should be required to work on a bank holiday and this should be clearly set out in the contracts of employment which are signed when taking up a position In many businesses including retail and travel services or in the health sector working on public holidays is a commercial or operational necessity Miss Bate said that where employers allow or require workers to take leave on public holidays this can be counted against their statutory leave provided it complies with the statutory minimum of 5 6 weeks per year under the Working Time Regulations 1998 Despite this many employers give paid holiday on the public holidays in addition to the minimum statutory leave entitlement Bank holidays always tend to cause particular problems for employers when dealing with part time workers holiday Unhelpfully for them the legal position on this has never been particularly clear Some employers will decide to only give part time workers paid time off for bank holidays when they fall on days on which the employee would normally work However this could place employers at risk of breaching the The Part time Workers Prevention of Less Favourable Treatment Regulations 2000 Many part time employees who work perhaps two or three days per week may not normally work on a Monday In this case by missing out on the bank holidays they may be treated less favourably than their comparable full time workers which is a breach of the Part Time Worker Regulations Miss Bate advised the best way to avoid breaching their obligations towards their part time employees is for employers to give part time workers a pro rata entitlement to public holidays regardless of whether they normally work on days that those holidays fall SHARE Facebook Twitter tweet Previous article Lights camera action
