Safety Window Film – Taking Security to a New Level

There can be little doubt that glass can be a fragile and potentially dangerous material, which presents a significant chance of injury and secondary damage when broken. Regulation 14 of the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 states that glass in risk critical locations must meet specified safety standards, and through the application of specialist safety window film from WF Glazing Protection, you can be certain to receive an efficient and highly effective solution. How Does Safety Window Film Work? Safety window film has been designed to substantially reduce the negative impact of broken glass. If untreated or standard glazing breaks, the shards can fall away from the frame creating an immediate and dangerous hazard. However the application of safety window film helps to hold the broken glass in place to prevent it from causing any further problems. The application of safety film will upgrade glass to safety glass standards, thus ensuring that there will be no need to incur the additional expense of undertaking an expensive glazing replacement programme to ensure health and safety compliance is met. Turning a Weakness into a Strength With the 3M™ Safety and Security Window Films available from WF Glazing Protection, we will be able to help you turn your windows from one of your property’s weaknesses into one of its strengths. By offering proven help against threats such as break-ins, and the increasing threat posed by extreme weather, 3M™ Safety and Security Window Films have been designed to help hold the glass fragments together, reducing potential injury from flying glass during a breakage. Because these films are designed to hold the glass together, they work to form a stronger barrier, absolutely perfect for slowing down and [...]

However, there can be little doubt that forward thinking business owners need to recognise the negative impact that serious fluctuations in temperature can have on productivity. Fascinating Insight A study by the renowned Cornell University in the UK provided some very interesting results – “When the office temperature in a month-long study increased from 68 to 77 degrees Fahrenheit, typing errors fell by 44 percent and typing output jumped 150 percent.” "At 77 degrees Fahrenheit, workers who were keyboarding 100 percent of the time with a 10 percent error rate, but at 68 degrees, their keying rate went down to 54 percent of the time with a 25 percent error rate,"  “Temperature is certainly a key variable that can impact performance."

Reducing Our Environmental Impact

Investors in the Environment is a national accreditation scheme designed to help organisations reduce their Carbon Footprint and therefore their impact on the wider community. As a result, businesses are also able to reduce their own risk through lowering their reliance on key raw materials such as oil and gas. Businesses also save money on costs and can attract customers with a strong sense of social impact. To achieve the Green Award, businesses must have an environmental policy that commits to legal compliance and has identified the areas of environmental impact. Alongside this they assign responsibility for environmental action to a key member of staff – known as the Green Champion. They then have to measure at least 6 resources on a monthly basis, including Gas, Electricity, Water and then other resources such as paper, waste, and business travel. Once this is established, they complete a carbon footprint analysis and are expected to set annual reduction targets of at least 2% along with SMART action plans to help them meet their targets. Employee engagement is a key part of the accreditation as it is far easier to achieve the goals set if everyone is working towards them. We ask our members to take part in activities such as zero waste week, green week, and committing to a paperless office. There is also the opportunity to get involved with external activities such as litter picks and volunteering at local nature reserves. They are expected to keep them informed of the impact the joint efforts are having on the overall carbon footprint. Award Night Around 30 people came along to share the success of local businesses who are working to reduce their environmental impact each year. [...]
