Hello everyone. It’s been a little while since my last post, so I thought I’d provide with some more excellent content on this fine November afternoon. I was thinking about what to include in this post and I really wanted to mention this business group that I came across in recent weeks. They are quite remarkable, as they informed me of a number of jobs and projects they have worked on, and a few of them really surprised me, considering the task that was at hand and their ability to finish the job.
They have worked with a large number of different companies and have catered to many different needs. Much of their work has culminated in the creation of a device or product that has essentially met all their clients needs. Anyway, I thought it might be interesting to talk you through some of the things they’ve worked one, and to gauge your reaction, because I’ll tell you now a lot of their work impressed me a great deal.
One project they worked on basically involved a hospital/medical building that needed a system in place whereby its senior members of staff were able to keep track of whether the other staff members were
a) Washing their hands regularly enough, in order to keep properly sanitised.
And b) washing their hands in the correct way/manner as to ensure they were again, properly clean and sanitised.
If someone came up to me with this problem, I don’t think I’d know where to start. Do you think you would? It’s a bit of a tricky one isn’t it. I literally had no idea how this problem could be solved, but the group explained their solution.
A custom device was built to ensure both a) and b) above. It was a new soap dispenser that, along with personal wrist bands that all of the members of staff wore, was able to keep track of exactly who was washing their hands, and how effectively they were doing it. Quite ingenious isn’t it, if you think about it. The device fulfilled the tasks of the job, and the overall project was a success. Loxley has consulting services that are shared, and the team have also worked with many other companies, engineering many other products and devices, but I won’t go into more today. You’ll have to come back again later to read more about this.
