In SS Great Britain, Helen Doe provides a narrative account of this famous and historically important ship. Experimental and controversial, Great Britain led the way for iron shipbuilding and screw propulsion. The book charts the ship's brilliant design and construction, and the tribulations of her owners as they battled financial crises to turn Isambard Kingdom Brunel's vision into reality. Brunel was passionate about this ship and was devastated when a navigational error stranded her in Dundrum Bay, Ireland. She was rescued in a great feat of salvage and went on to a long life at sea, carrying passengers to New York, troops to the Crimea and India, and thousands of emigrants to Australia. Helen Doe highlights the contribution of the many individuals connected to the ship, ranging from crew members to passengers, at least one grand Victorian scandal, and the mysterious disappearance of her long-serving captain. In this way, the ship's life and times are recreated and the history of a technical marvel is given a human face. The ship was salvaged a second time, when she was rescued from the Falkland Islands and towed home across the Atlantic. She now sits in splendour in her original dock in Bristol and is one of the most visited attractions in Britain. This a compelling account of an iconic ship and of an important moment in industrial history.
HSE has published a new, simplified version of the Health and Safety Law Poster. It tells workers what they and their employers need to do in simple terms, using numbered lists of basic points. As an employer, you are required by law to either display the HSE-approved poster or to provide each of your workers with the quivalent 'leaflet'. The leaflet version of the poster has now been replaced by a pocket card, which is more durable and better suited to the workplace. (ISBN 9780717663507 in packs of 25.) The law has been changed - for the new poster you don't have to add contact details of your enforcing authority and HSE's Employment Medical Advisory Service. You can add details of any employee safety representatives or other health and safety contacts, but this is not compulsory.
"Protecting our Water, Soil and Air: A Code of Good Agricultural Practice for Farmers, Growers and Land Managers" presents a practical guide to help farmers, growers and land managers protect the environment in which they operate. All farmers are required to have access to the Code and to be familiar with the key actions that can be taken to protect and enhance the quality of water, soil and air. The Code applies in England and replaces the separate Water, Air and Soil Codes published by the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food and the Welsh Office Agricultural Department. The Code has been written by technical specialists from the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) and Natural England. The Code offers practical interpretation of legislation and provides good advice on best practice. The term 'good agricultural practice' means a practice that minimises the risk of causing pollution while protecting natural resources and allowing economic agriculture to continue. This Code provides an important point of reference based around the main operations that farmers, growers and land managers might undertake, but also management plans, farm infrastructure and waste management. Sections on water pollution are of particular note as, by 2015, the Water Framework Directive will require an integrated approach to managing water quality and quantity. The legal requirements and good practices within this Code will help farmers to achieve the new standards. Sections of the Code also form a Statutory Code under Section 97 of the Water Resources Act 1991.
