Lessons must be learned from this tragedy... (18 September 2008)
Health and Safety should never be far from an electrician’s mind as he or she goes about their work. But external pressures can affect the judgement of everyone and electricians are no different. The case of Mitie employee Michael Adamson who was electrocuted in 2005 while working on the new JJB Sports Centre in Dundee has raised concerns about how time constraints are dealt with by both management and their staff... read more...

''Err...hold the line a sec, I just pranged it!'' (30 July 2008)

But are we addressing the potential problems that could arise as we move outside? read more...

Squeezing The Most From Technology (25 June 2008)
Innovation isn’t all about coming up with entirely new technology. Applying existing technology to new situations can have a similarly important impact and be equally innovative. That’s what first struck me when I heard about plans to use the energy generated from pedestrian footfall to power supermarkets, railway stations, nightclubs and tourist attractions. Richard Scott questions whether piezoelectric devices could pave the way to another useful source of renewable energy... read more...
