Health and Safety MagazineWith 2018 begun in earnest, and a month of work underway, we’ve just launched the new edition of our much-loved magazine Cardinus Connect. The Winter/Spring 2018 edition leads with ‘The Prevention Business’, an article put together by Cardinus President Bill Pace and the Health Enhancement Company’s Donna DeFalco. In the article the pair tell us why prevention is better than the cure when it comes to occupational health and safety and ergonomics. Having worked for a couple of years with Adventist Health, a US health case system with 20 hospitals and around 20,000 employees, they noticed the impact that preventative interventions could have. The article neatly puts this all together and invites the reader to understand how preventative steps could have more impact than putting in interventions after the fact.

We’ve got an excellent piece of instructive writing from RSA’s Frazer Argyros-Farrell on the escape of water, which poses one of the most significant threats to property owners and managers. The value of claims paid by the UK insurance market for escape of water is estimated to be in the region of £2.6m per day. This shows the seriousness and size of the threat. Frazer’s article brilliantly sets out some general and specific precautions that property owners or managers can take to meet this threat and minimise damage.
