The Importance Of Groundwork

What Is Groundwork?

Groundwork is the first stage in all construction projects and is the process which takes place before any construction or building work is undertaken. Sub-surfaces must be prepared to ensure they are safe previous to any foundations being placed. It may be that you have forestry that you wish to build on or old land, these needs be cleared and the ground prepared to hold the weight, foundations and drainage of water before any building work starts.groundwork2

Why Is Groundwork Important In All Aspects Of Construction?

Without sturdy groundwork, you are taking a high risk in terms of flooding, sinking and construction projects collapsing which in time will cause distress, wasted resources time and money for all those involved in the build.

The ground underneath your construction project is vital to the structure of your project. The earth must be safe, strong and meet national standards for insurance and safety purposes for those using it. As a legal requirement, all areas of ground must be investigated and the site inspected before any construction takes place. These assessments will then be documented and should cover areas such as ground contamination and condition, geology, hydrology soil conditions and abandoned mines.

Once you have determined that the ground is safe to build on the next stages are to install the relevant draining and foundations needed for the project.  If you are hiring a tree surgeon contractor you must ensure they have experience in this field of work and all the relevant tickets required to complete the task correctly and efficiently. A superior contractor will hold all licenses and will take control of the next stage of this project for you with ease.

Redundancy is a form of dismissal from your job, it can happen when employers (for various reasons) need to reduce their workforce.

Your employer should use a fair and objective way of selecting people for redundancy, the methods usually used are: last in, first-out (employees with the shortest length of service are selected first) asking for anybody that may want redundancy (self-selection/voluntary redundancy) or an employer may go on disciplinary records.

There are many reasons you cannot be selected for, your redundancy could then be classed as unfair dismissal, and these may include: Gender, marital status, race, disability, age or sexual orientation.

If you are being made redundant you could be eligible for things such as Redundancy pay, a notice period, a consultation with your employer, an option to move into a different role or time off to find a new job.

You would have to be given a notice period before your employment ends.

The statutory redundancy notice periods are at least one weeks’ notice if employed between one month and two years. One weeks’ notice for each year if employed between two and twelve years and twelve weeks’ notice if employed for 12 years or more.

As well as the statutory pay your employer should either pay you through your notice period or pay you in lieu of notice depending on your circumstances.

You should be entitled to a consultation with your employer if you are being made redundant; you can then speak to them about why you are being made redundant or if there are any alternatives to redundancy. You can also appeal if you feel you may have been unfairly selected, you can do this by writing to your employer explaining the reasons you feel this way.



Foot Health

There are many ways in which you can take care of your foot health to keep your feet in good condition and help prevent the problems which can be caused. These following tips will help to keep your foot health in optimum condition.

Firstly, you should wash your feet often and keep them as clean as possible. In order to do this, you should wash your feet in soapy, warm water. However, we advise you not to soak your feet as you then may destroy your skins natural’s oils. When you have thoroughly washed them, ensure you dry them well, especially in places like in between your toes. This is because this is where infections can develop such as athlete’s foot.


Once you have completely dried your feet, you may want to use a foot file to remove all of the hard skin but do not overdue this as you could damage the skin underneath. Afterwards, apply moisturiser all over both feet. However, we do not advise that you put this cream in between your toes.

Afterwards, you should trim your toenails, but you should do this regularly anyway. This should be carried out with proper nail clippers and cut straight across. You should never cut your toenails at an angle or down the edges as this can cause an ingrown toenail.

However, if you carry out this foot health process and you still develop foot problems, you should contact your local podiatrist.

Please note: It is essential that you have your feet checked by a professional regularly such as a GP or podiatrist if you have either a health condition that affects your feet. These conditions may include diabetes, poor circulation or even a low immune system.
