A call to end modern-day slavery in construction

When you think of the term slavery, it conjures up all sorts of horrific images of inhumane acts against workers. To think it could be happening in the 21st century is hard to believe, but the hard truth is – it does and comes in many different forms other than physical abuse.

Flooding, Climate Change, and How to Act in an Emergency

For a country that experiences a significant amount of rain throughout the year, the UK still has a lot to learn about flooding, understanding and preventing floods from causing irreparable damage, and ensuring we are prepared for the worst.

The scheme was created as a response to flooding in December 2013, which resulted in more than 250 properties being flooded.

When we’re late one day, we’ll take a shorter lunch to make up the time, but on a project site this is almost impossible. When you’re late with a project it is an almost impossible task to try and get it back on track. With PAL Hire’s help, if you’re in danger of delivering your…
