A global increase in occupational health and safety laws and regulations has resulted in an increased demand for professionals in the field. Maintaining health and safety in the workplace is a legal requirement for all businesses to ensure employees’ safety and wellbeing. Despite the legal requirements, employers are also increasingly hiring safety officers in an effort to avoid the financial losses of injuries, as well as the damage to its reputation because of accidents or negligence. But this is not it. Following a clear management system is crucial for the success of the department’s objectives. An OHS management system is more than just a programme. It includes policies, systems, standards, records, and involves incorporating health and safety practices into business processes. Having an effective management system improves the ability to continuously identify hazards and control risks. Boecker® has designed its own Health and Safety management system, The Occupational Health and Safety Lite™ (OHS Lite™) certification programme, to assist small and medium enterprises in achieving a consistent standard of occupational health and safety in their premises as well as protect employees and workers from any harm and danger at work. Contact your local Boecker® branch for more information.
Once again, Boecker® proved itself as a key player in the hospitality industry by taking part in HORECA Lebanon 2019. Around +2,000 visitors stopped by our futuristic stand at the Seaside Arena Beirut and were introduced to the latest techniques and services of the industry; as well as a whole new range of products from international brands distributed exclusively by Boecker®, such as Gloria™, Biogents, Sumitomo Chemical and other brands displayed during the exhibition. Boecker® was also appointed the exclusive hygiene jury of the Salon Culinaire. Hence, our Food Safety consultants graded all participants at the Salon Culinaire competition and selected top winners who applied the best hygiene standards offering them awards and training courses vouchers. CEO Mr. Michel Bayoud presented the latest procedures for both Pest Management and Food Safety during a special forum attended by visitors alongside with prominent members of the business. The latest technological yet innovative products and services introduced across our business lines were shared with attendees. On the other hand, a ceremony was held at the stand whereby more than 50 clients received their Food Safety consultancy awards such as QPA™, ISO, HACCP and BRC, as well as their Pest Management Quality certificates. Boecker® will always be at the forefront of the Public Health solutions and we are looking forward already to next year’s HORECA exhibition!
Indoor air quality has become one of the most serious environmental concerns as an average person spends about 22 hours indoors on a daily basis. Most people don’t think about their HVAC system’s ductwork until something has gone horribly and expensively wrong with it. Poor indoor air quality is being increasingly linked to a variety of illnesses, and modern home design has made maintaining good indoor air quality difficult because new homes are so tightly sealed for energy efficiency purposes. Cleaning and disinfecting the AC ducts can help keep mould and contaminants from constantly recirculating through your home and giving rise to respiratory problems and other illnesses. Boecker® offers today the new VORTEX service that will clean and disinfect effectively the air ducts and vents. Our trained and experienced technicians will inspect the unit and ducts, including check the most inaccessible areas of the ducts, use specialized brushes and tools to loosen debris within the ducts, vacuum to remove dirt and debris and disinfect. Regular disinfection of your HVAC ducts can greatly benefit the indoor air quality in your home or place of business. Book your appointment today or call for a FREE inspection.
