World Day for Safety and Health at Work

Logo_ILO_organization_en_black

The 28th April is the World Day for Safety and Health at Work.

Every day, 6,300 people die as a result of occupational accidents or work-related diseases – more than 2.3 million deaths per year. 317 million accidents occur on the job annually; many of these resulting in extended absences from work. The human cost of this daily adversity is vast and the economic burden of poor occupational safety and health practices is estimated at 4 per cent of global Gross Domestic Product each year.

The World Day for Safety and Health at Work is an annual international campaign to promote safe, healthy and decent work. It is held on 28 April and has been observed by the International Labour Organization (ILO) since 2003.

At Grotech Production we believe in keeping our staff, customers and suppliers safe at all times.

Work Safe, Be Safe, Stay Safe

Wheelgoo, is an innovative puncture sealant developed by the technical team here at Grotech Production as a result of an enquiry from a customer who wanted a high quality puncture sealant to add to their range.

Working to a brief and under a Development Agreement, Grotech not only developed the formulation, but also the pack contents and the packaging so that our customer received a “shelf ready” product.

If you have an idea that you want developing or a formulation that needs blending and packing, contact Grotech Production on 01405 761746 and see how we can help you.

Dubai Export Contract

dubai-3-2103072_960_720

Exporting can be challenging with complicated shipping routes and complex customs red tape to navigate. Here at Grotech Production Ltd we have more than 40 years experience of manufacturing chemical compounds for overseas markets.

In that time our team has built up a depth of understanding about how to ensure any export process runs smoothly.

This was tested recently when we won a contract to export Evercare Freshclean cleaner to a facilities management company based in Dubai.

They were attracted by the excellent results achieved by Freshclean on a multitude of surfaces. Tough but gentle, it brings every surface up sparkling but doesn’t adversely affect decorative finishes such as marble. It also exceeds environmental expectations helping businesses fulfill green targets.

They particularly liked the fact that as a powder they were only paying for the product rather than the water it was diluted in. This makes it both versatile and affordable. Keen to trial it they ordered a consignment for a speedy delivery.

Our internal team here at Goole quickly identified the unique documents that customs both here and in Dubai would be keeping an eagle eye out for. With experience of working on sensitive products containing chemicals we worked closely with our shipping partners Air, Sea, Road International, based in Cheshire, to ensure that the export documentation contained all the detail that customs here and in Dubai would be looking for.

Making comprehensive checks of the fine detail ensured that everything was complete before the shipment started its journey.

Paperwork was just one part of the equation. Freshclean is designed to cut down on packaging and transport costs by being a powder. This meant we had to ensure that the packaging was strong enough to withstand any turbulence it encountered en route.

Thanks to the expertise of our experienced team at our Goole factory, the trial was a huge success and further Freshclean has been ordered for long term use by the facilities management company in Dubai.
