On the 29th July our Directors, Sherrie and Adrian, will be doing Ride London to raise money and awareness for the British Lung Foundation.
Ride London- Surrey is a 100mile closed road cycling event following many of the same roads from the Olympic Road Race in 2012. The course features some gruelling 1300+ meters (4300ft) in climbs, most of which is to be found between Pyrford and the summit of Leith Hill and of course the famous (or should that be infamous,) Box Hill. Of course being based in the rather flat vale of York, this bit is the hardest to train for, they are both doing their best however, and have been putting in the miles to help prepare themselves.
Sherrie and Adi have chosen to support the British Lung Foundation because in our line of business we work closely with customers across a vast range of industries protecting their workforce from air pollutants which can cause breathing and lung disorders.
Somebody dies from lung disease in the UK every 5 minutes with approximately 10,000 people in the UK diagnosed with a lung disease each week. As such workplace lung disease is one of the key topics in HSE’s Health and Work Strategy.
At APS UK Ltd we strive to help companies resolve potentially hazardous working environments which impact on the lung health of their employees. Adrian is also the honourable secretary on the steering committee of ILEVE (Institute of Local Exhaust Ventilation Engineers), which was established to promote air quality in the workplace and to reduce ill health and death due to airborne contamination and hazardous substances in the working environment.
