Hi there!

Where is this year going!  I cannot believe it is 1st May today and on the run up to the Tour De Yorkshire, taking place on 1/2/3 May, we have been making preparations to house more stock to support our customers who will benefit from the extra trade the Tour will generate.

The debut Tour de Yorkshire cycle race could bring up to £40m into the county’s economy according to organiser’s and we wish all the teams lots of luck.  We look forward to enjoying the buzz this will create in and around the county and watching it ourselves from the end of our road, near  Spectrum’s Scarborough Distribution Centre.

This month has been exceptionally busy for us.  Easter was a firm success for most of our tourism customers and we sold in excess of 60,000 meters of centre feed rolls and 20,000 litres of washing up liquid, amongst other things of course!  The green shoots of recovery are finally starting to grow bigger for most of us, good news!!

Taking the decision to change suppliers is never easy, however, we have engaged with a new provider, HPC Healthline, who will now supply our gloves and aprons amongst some other products.  Trading since 1968, they manufacture to the highest European standards, namely the Medical Devices Directive, PPE Directive and the Food Contact Regulation and they supply one of the most extensive ranges.  Our prices are extremely competitive and the feedback we have received from customers has been very encouraging – a good decision to change!            For further details of our gloves click here.

This month saw us deliver one of our free tool box talks at St Gemma’s Hospice, Leeds.  10 housekeeper’s attended the COSHH and Cleaning and Hygiene Science module, available through our Hygiene Management Scheme and I am pleased to say they all passed with flying colours!!

Finally, 01st June 2015, sees changes to all COSHH Symbols, which will keep us all on our toes. We are currently training all our current customers on the new symbols and what they mean.   Click here -The CLP Regulation for more information. CLP stands for classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures.  

The CLP Regulation adopts the United Nations’ Globally Harmonised System on the classification and labelling of chemicals (GHS) across all European Union countries, including the UK.

As GHS is a voluntary agreement rather than a law, it has to be adopted through a suitable national or regional legal mechanism to ensure it becomes legally binding. That’s what the CLP Regulation does. Ask your current supplier for more information if you are unsure or give us a call for some free advice.
