    Catch 22

    Exactly my point Tony, I know the mental pressure that's exerted on a person in these jobs. I wouldn't feel comfortable giving a job to someone who I knew had an underlying condition. For their well being and others. I don't feel this is discrimination, however maybe a court might disagree. I know my conscience certainly wouldn't be clean if something did happen. I've been on sites where fatalities have happened, thankfully I wasn't the one having to inform the deceased family.

  14. The Scottish Government has announced that the threshold for using project bank accounts (PBAs) has reduced to £2 million (from £4.1 million). Since 31 October 2016 PBAs have been mandated for use by Scottish Government bodies. As from 19 March 2019 public bodies must include a PBA in tender documents for public works contracts with an estimated value or more than or equal to £2 million (£5 million for civil engineering projects). The Scottish Government has been praised for this action by the Specialist Engineering Contractors’ (SEC) Group Scotland. Speaking on behalf of the Group its National Executive Officer Alan Wilson said that he was delighted with the announcement: “We have been pressing Scottish Government for some time to reduce the threshold to £2 million. Clearly Scottish Government has been listening and industry SMEs will be the prime beneficiaries of this lowering of the threshold.” Scottish public bodies responsible for a total of £1bn of projects have either: used a PBA(s). included a PBA in their ITTs. indicated their intent to use a PBA. The Scottish Government is also stepping up its efforts to encourage all bodies involved in public sector procurement to implement PBAs.

  17. A new Hub, led by the University of Sheffield, is combining expertise in electrical machines and manufacturing to put the UK at the forefront of an electrification revolution. A £28m investment, underpinned by a £10m award from the EPSRC, will enable researchers from the new EPSRC Future Electrical Machines Manufacturing Hub to work with industry to address key manufacturing challenges, design new electrical machines with improved performance for the aerospace, energy, automotive and premium consumer sectors. The new electrical machines with improved performance - higher power density, increased efficiency and improved reliability - are being designed by researchers and industry to address a need for clean growth and the challenging demands of new applications. However, there are significant manufacturing challenges to overcome if UK industry wants the ability to manufacture these new machines at an appropriate cost and with the right levels of flexibility and quality. With funding from the EPSRC and industrial partners including Rolls Royce, Airbus, Siemens Gamesa, GKN Aerospace, McLaren and Dyson, the team, led by the University of Sheffield’s Faculty of Engineering and Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC), will work with academics at Newcastle University and the Advanced Forming Research Centre in Strathclyde to solve these issues. Professor Mike Hounslow, Vice-President and Head of the Faculty of Engineering, said: “The University has world-leading research capability in electrical machines and in manufacturing. “The significance of this new initiative is that we can bring these together with contributions from partners, not simply to understand and design machines but to ensure they can be manufactured reliably, and economically, in the UK.” Professor Geraint Jewell, Director of the EPSRC Future Electrical Machines Manufacturing Hub, said: “'The rapid move towards the electrification of transport and the surge in renewable energy generation is making this an exciting time for the manufacture of electrical machines in the UK. This is the first activity to combine electrical machines expertise with a broad range of manufacturing research expertise in a long-term programme of research at scale.” The Hub will play its role in addressing the skills shortage in electrical machine design and their manufacture, with some 30 allied PhDs projects sponsored by a combination of the host universities and industrial partners dovetailing with the Hub’s seven-year research programme.

  18. Consumer safety standards must not be allowed to slip following the UKs departure from the European Union, Electrical Safety First warns. As the United Kingdom moves closer to its withdrawal from the EU the Charity urges the Government that, regardless of the outcomes from the on-going negotiations, consumer safety must be made a priority. It is essential that current EU legislation surrounding safety standards on electrical goods as well as consumer protection rights are continued to be mirrored into UK law to ensure all electrical items are safe, so that consumers are protected from the risk of substandard or counterfeit products. Substandard and counterfeit electrical products pose a much greater risk to life compared to items such as fake clothing and carry with them the risk of electrocution and fire. According to the European Commission, customs authorities across the EU seized an estimated five million more counterfeit items in 2015 than the previous year - a 15% increase on the number of intercepted goods compared to 2014. It is likely the UK will need to take on much greater responsibility surrounding enforcement and checks of imports in order to assess compliance with new customs controls. To do so effectively, front line enforcement bodies, such as trading standards, must be adequately resourced to take on this increase in responsibility. It is essential the UK does not become a priority destination for substandard or counterfeit products as a result of possible deregulation of safety standards. The benefit to the economy through the use of enforcement bodies is clear as it is estimated the identification of some 1.2 million unsafe or non-compliant goods prevented approximately 500 fires, 1000 major injuries and 2,000 minor injuries with a net benefit to England and Wales of almost £7million, according to the NTS Safety at Ports and Borders. Latest figures from a National Trading Standards consumer harm report shows that investment in our enforcement bodies provides a clear return on investment delivering £12.28 for every £1 spent. Future trade negotiations must not be made at the expense of product safety standards which could ultimately put the consumer at greater risk in the home. Phil Buckle, Chief Executive of Electrical Safety First commented: “No outcome from the on-going EU-UK negotiations should be to the detriment of safety standards or consumer protection rights. The risks posed by substandard and counterfeit electrical products are a very real threat to consumer’s safety and one the Charity continues to highlight. Electrical Safety First is urging the need for the preservation and protection of current standards. Electricity is responsible for more than half of accidental domestic fires in England and any weakening of such standards could see this figure rise in the future. It is essential that enforcement bodies, which serve on the front line in the fight against substandard and counterfeit electrical items, are adequately resourced to be as effective as possible as we depart from the European Union.” Brand: Electrical Safety First Topic: Fire Safety and Security Thumbnail image: Teaser: Electrical Safety First wants consumer protection and safety standards to be preserved post Brexit Type: Industry News Main image(s): Date of publication: 20/02/2019 Target group: Voltimum View the full article

  22. All these benefits can only be achieved using the right light source with the right quality. Poor quality lighting, both traditional and LED, can have various negative consequences on the well-being and comfort of both nature and people. Among these drawbacks are increased light pollution and sky glow, discomfort of residents in cities caused by glare, harsh and uncontrolled lighting, and the negative impact on biodiversity. This article explores the latter topic: the consequences of artificial lighting on biodiversity; in particular on birds and bats. It describes measures that need to be put in place to ensure that these animals are not disturbed by artificial lighting during feeding, migration and general behaviour. The impact of artificial light on birds In recent years, ecologists have conducted extensive research to show that bright lights attract and disorient birds, disrupting their flight paths. One aspect they have been able to show is that bird migration is disturbed near to high-intensity urban light installations and offshore sites, among other places. As a result, birds spend extra time flying around the light source, using up valuable energy resources instead of making progress on their migration routes. Consequently, many birds may not survive their arduous journey, or have less chance of breeding successfully at their destination. To gather more knowledge about the phenomenon and potentially find a solution, Philips Lighting conducted their own research. To study the autumnal bird migration, a 9-month field study on coastal areas was followed up by research on an offshore platform in the North Sea. As part of this research, light sources on an offshore gas production platform were replaced by a specially developed light spectrum. During the study, different species of birds were observed under different weather conditions. Birds were also counted at the ringing stations on nearby islands. The results, compared with historical data, clearly showed that when the conventional lamp source was replaced with a dedicated light spectrum, the number of birds circulating around the light source reduced significantly. Click here to download the white paper to read more about the methodology used and the primary results obtained. Based on the outcome of this research, Philips Lighting designed a new light spectrum which does not distract birds during migration. It is designed to be placed on large lighted objects in dark surroundings, such as offshore installations, remote harbour or port installations, and certain city skyscrapers. While significantly reducing the nocturnal activities of birds, the light still provides sufficient light for people’s safety and comfort. Putting a light recipe into practice on Ameland Ameland is an island off the north coast of the Netherlands. It is located in the Wadden Sea, which is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Ameland is the breeding ground and wintering area for 10-12 million birds per year. The island has a clear vision towards sustainability and intends to become CO­2 neutral in the near future. This vision includes creating a liveable space for citizens and wildlife. Realizing the importance of minimizing the effect of artificial lighting on nature, the municipality requested Philips Lighting to find the most sustainable lighting solution for the island. This proved to be a special light recipe to reduce the negative impact of lighting on birds and ensure smooth bird migration. Click here to read the case study. Bats are also affected by artificial light Another major concern is the effect of artificial light on different bat species. Bats are extremely important to a balanced ecosystem. They control numbers of potentially irritating or harmful insects, and are highly effective in controlling agricultural pests, which can lead to a reduced need for pesticide sprays. They are also robust natural indicators of environmental health, as changes in bat populations indicate changes in aspects of biodiversity. The Habitats Directive published by the European Commission covers all bat species living within the European Union. The Directive requires all Member States to undertake positive measures to ensure that their bat populations are afforded a favourable conservation status. Investigations carried out by a number of associations, such as the Bat Conservation Trust, have found that artificial light affects night-time movement and feeding of bats. Furthermore, it was found that different species react differently to artificial light, which can result in a significant disturbance of the overall ecosystem by giving unfair advantages to species that are less afraid of artificial light. In short, light can have an impact on bats’ commuting routes. For example, lit roads can act as a barrier that bats either cannot or dare not cross. Light can also have direct or indirect effects on breeding colonies, hibernation sites and roosts. During research conducted in 2017 by the Bat Conservation Trust, it was found that white light LEDs dissuade slower flying species from drinking at cattle troughs, and even the drinking behaviour of faster flying species was impeded. A seven-year study at eight different sites To examine these impacts more closely, Philips Lighting initiated a study that tested the response of three species of bat to three different experimental light spectra in an otherwise dark and undisturbed natural habitat. Over seven years, research was conducted at eight sites in the Netherlands. Light posts were set up that emitted either white light or two different light recipes. The results of the research showed that certain species are very much afraid of artificial light and try to avoid it at all costs, but when applying the dedicated recipe with a selected spectrum, their behaviour was the same as during full darkness. Click here to download the white paper which explains the methodology used and the primary results obtained. A light recipe to provide an optimal ecosystem for bats In line with research findings, a new light spectrum was designed for animals that are distracted by short wavelength light. It displays minimal attraction for insects. Bats behave the same way as if it was full darkness, which therefore helps maintain the balance of the ecosystem by providing equal opportunities for all species. Lit roads don’t act as borders or obstacles to be crossed at night. At the same time, people have sufficient light to operate or drive safely. Rare bats in Nieuwkoop get the benefit Thanks to its rare and special flora and fauna, Zuidhoek in the municipality of Nieuwkoop in the Netherlands is part of the Natura 2000 network. The municipality decided to turn an old camp site into a residential area, but prior to construction work starting, they were obliged to assess the area’s flora and fauna. They discovered that it is an important feeding area for some rare bat species. Before proceeding with the housing program, they therefore had to put some conservation measures in place, including lighting that would not disturb the nocturnal feeding activity of the bats. The municipality selected the dedicated light recipe developed for bats by Philips Lighting. It does not impact the behaviour of the bats, but ensures sufficient illumination for the area’s human residents. Click here to read the case study. The environmental benefits of LED lighting The extensive field research carried out by Philips Lighting led to the development of the dedicated light recipes described in this article. The light recipes help ensure undisturbed bird migration, and prevent disturbance to the natural behaviour of bats. This innovative initiative shows that while future-proof lighting has a clear goal to improve energy efficiency, it can also contribute to the conservation of nature.

  23. Yet the truth is that the colours and effects that lighting specialists hope for aren’t always the ones they get. The arrival of LED lighting, meanwhile, has made the issue much more complicated, posing new challenges for colour consistency, even as it’s introduced exciting new capabilities. Why consistency matters What exactly do we mean by colour consistency? It’s the average variation in chromaticity – colour, in short – among both colour LEDs and white-light ones (lighting designers talk of the “pink, yellow, or green hue shift”). Without consistency, lighting professionals can’t rely on the quality or specific output of the luminaires they select. And that’s a problem, particularly in large-scale implementations that people are counting on to make a big impact. Complementary tech that makes life easier Traditional ways of ensuring colour consistency are time-consuming, requiring specialized expertise and programming. So Philips Color Kinetics has developed technologies that set new standards for consistency – making things easier for people who work with LED. In this series of posts, we look at three technologies that work together to deliver the accuracy, precision, and consistency that LED applications demand. Taking binning to the next level Binning is the first of these technologies – and the first step towards consistency. A technological process that takes place after LED chips are manufactured, it measures LEDs – which can vary in colour as well as by such criteria as flux and forward voltage – and groups them for market delivery in subclasses, known as “bins.” This helps guarantee large numbers of LEDs that are consistent across production runs, and makes it possible for professionals to choose LEDs that meet specifications. They can select the LEDs suited to illuminating a bridge at night, for instance, and be confident that what they’re getting is what they need. Philips’ Optibin™ technology takes binning to another level, algorithmically grouping LEDs by chromaticity and flux and ensuring the consistency of hue and colour temperature for Philips Color Kinetics lighting products. This advanced selection formula guarantees that products are characterized by an extraordinary level of uniformity. The Optibin process applies each time Philips Color Kinetics selects bins of LED sources for purchase from its suppliers, and each time it manufactures a run of fixtures. By purchasing and intelligently combining specified LED sources from a range of manufacturing bins, Optibin guarantees that the final luminaire has consistent colour from fixture to fixture, from manufacturing run to manufacturing run, year after year. A crucial first step In addition to the obvious benefits – lighting installations just look better – there are other benefits to Optibin. Customers don’t need to track manufacturing or binning codes when they’re doing large lighting installations – a boon during work on phased installations, where fixtures are purchased and installed at different times. Doing procurement for multi-site installations also becomes a lot easier. In short, Optibin is a crucial first step towards colour consistency. A second step is represented by Philips’ Chromasync™– the subject of the next post in our series.

  26. Scolmore has responded to the SOS contractors sent out about the hassle of flickering and poor dimming range when it comes to LED dimmers. Scolmore has also addressed the complicated nature of some LED dimmers to install, especially when changing the settings such as dimming mode and minimum brightness, sometimes requiring the installer to perform a specific switching sequence using a dimmer knob. Scolmore's solution is an intelligent dimmer module that not only eliminates flickering, but is much easier to control than regular dimmers, and is essentially two dimmers in one. And, with a choice of dimming modes – leading or trailing edge – installers can choose the mode that works most effectively with the LED lights they are using. Voltimum reviewer Thomas Nagy shows how simple Scolmore’s Dual Mode Dimmer Module is to program and install – to end “outdated” Morse code methods. Choose leading or trailing edge, that’s it. Fitting the switch is as easy as ever but larger screw heads make it a doddle, Thomas finds. The module’s tough too. Thomas proves that by driving a vehicle over the unit, then fitting it back in the test wall and lighting up the room. “Sterling job Scolmore,” judges Thomas’.
