I don’t wish to be miserable but listening to the radio on the way in to work this morning I heard two advertisements that are worth mentioning.

Did you know that asbestos is the single greatest cause of work-related deaths in the UK? Apparently 4 plumbers a week die of asbestos poisoning. This isn’t of course just relevant to plumbers, but also to carpenters, electricians, builders etc, in fact anyone who’s working in older buildings. These statistics are fairly horrendous, so if you’re a small business that could potentially be affected by asbestos, please check out the website http://www.hse.gov.uk/asbestos/

Secondly – and briefly – have you completed your online tax return yet?!!! Don’t forget you also have to pay any outstanding monies due by Sunday as well. Go to http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/.

And I’ll post something more cheerful tomorrow.
