While breast cancer in men is rare it’s still an issue for the 10 men on average who are diagnosed with it every year in Northern Ireland.

Ian Cranston, 70, was diagnosed with breast cancer in May. Two weeks later he had a mastectomy.

The Portadown father-of-two was given the all-clear in June…

The Importance of Getting Succession Planning Right

We all know that change is the only constant in business. Organizations know it, too. Yet, many are hesitant to bring about and embrace change until they are compelled to. This is a fundamental mistake from managements, because organizations that are resistant to change are not likely to flourish in the long run.

Do You Have Questions about Disposable Dust Masks? We Have Answers!

Do You Have Quest.gif

The two most-common questions I hear when it comes to disposable dust masks/respirators are: “My employees wear disposable dust masks – do I have to fit test these employees?” and “How often should they change out their mask for a new one?”

First, it’s important to consider the masks themselves. These devices often are referred to as filtering facepieces and can be approved or unapproved. Unapproved dust masks can be mistaken for approved…
