Construction Work Safety in the Home

Construction Safety in the home
Hi folks,
in this article I want to talk about construction work safety and the responsibilities for homeowners in making sure that construction work is carried out safely in the home.  These responsibilities are covered under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (Construction) Regulations 2013.  I would also encourage tradesmen to read this article and to check out the checklist at the bottom of this article and in the HSA Guide.  If you are a tradesman, try to ensure that you can answer ‘yes’ to the relevant questions in the checklist and that you carry a file with relevant certs and policies to support your claims.

Garden Tips for Autumn

garden tips for autumn

Hi folks,
this article is about garden tips for Autumn.  The weather in July was disagreeable this year but crops are doing well and gardens are looking great!  Hopefully we’ll get some fine weather in August so that we can enjoy sitting out in the garden and enjoy the fruits of our labour during the Summer, or the fruits of someone else’s labour as the case may be:-)

Well there is always lots to do in the garden.  If you have the time or the interest, it’s really a very satisfying hobby.  Some people can be put off as they think it’s a lot of work and they don’t know where to start.   However, keeping a garden doesn’t have to be a big job.  You can literally get started by planting a few flowers or vegetables in a window box or corner of the garden and progress from there year by year as you become more confident.

There are many gardening groups that you can join to get some more tips and keep you motivated:-)  Another approach is to do some of the smaller gardening tasks yourself and hire a local gardener for the big work of planting and digging, to keep an eye out for, and spray for pests and diseases.  He/she can recommend a weekly spray program if you wish to do the spraying yourself.  Anyway, enough of the introduction, let’s get started, here is a list of the Autumn jobs and tips for the garden below, hope you enjoy reading through them:-
