  7. STOP the BLOCK

    Food Service Establishments (FSE's) can be fined for disposing  fats oils and grease (FOGs) into the sewer system, if it is deemed to have caused a blockage either to their property or others.  If the FOGs then make their way to a water companys assets and cause damage the fines could be large.   People may think FOGs are created by takeaways, greasy spoon cafes and other establishments serving up deep-fried deliciousness however that isn’t the case.

  9. New Defibrillator

      A new defibrillator has been installed at IPS Flow Systems, at our facility in Seaham. IPS Flow Systems recognises the importance a defibrillator can have on a person’s survival and recently took delivery of a defibrillator.  A victim’s chance of survival falls around 7 to 10 percent with every minute that defibrillation is delayed.  When a heart stops beating, oxygen is not being transported to the brain and other vital organs, and within four to five minutes, brain damage will start to occur without intervention. IPS Flow Systems have expanded their emergency first aid at work team from two to four and Karen Angus and Michael Potter, who are also Mental Health Fist Aid Champions, recently completing a three-day first aid at work course with St John’s Ambulance joining Ian Parki

Chris Lowery Castle Oils Site Manager said "We would undoubtedly hire the machine again"   The Castle group MD Rob Cowley was so pleased with the work by Chris
