Kevin Mc Afee - The new legislation is coming

 

Welcome to CleanChem!

CleanChem offers your business control, consistency and due diligence in today's challenging world of Health and Safety. Our process is very simple. We will customise a page with a unique username and password for your business within the CleanChem website offering customised links to industry standard, AS/NZ approved or HSNO standard products specific to your business needs. 

The CleanChem website gives each client specific control and consistency, be it for a single location or multiple sites throughout New Zealand. CleanChem also archives every order for you to show your history of purchases, giving you evidence of your ongoing commitment to supporting Health and Safety within your business in preparation for any health & safety audit or visit from Worksafe NZ

Understanding the new legislation is about process and accountability. You as a business owner are responsible for ensuring that you are doing everything possible to keep your teams safe and also that your employees are aware of their responsibilities in regard to health and safety. If a business fails to meet this standard of care, there can be significant consequences for employers and employees. CleanChem offers a high standard of due diligence and 100% support to both the employer and employee.

By October this year when the new health and safety legislation is expected to be passed through Parliament, CleanChem's consultancy role becomes more significant.  CleanChem will also meet this challenge through the introduction of innovative online health & safety software to support small to medium sized businesses who don't have the time, knowledge or resources for an in house Health and Safety Manager. This application which is currently being developed, will provide everything you need from company health & safety policy manuals, to every day documentation and checklists on what you should be doing to keep your business in line with the specific requirements of Health and Safety within your business. 

CleanChem was officially launched in March 2015 this year and to date we have supported several national companies in ensuring their personal protective clothing and equipment meets AS/NZ standards where applicable.  More recently Foodstuffs have seen the benefit in what is on offer and a majority of their sites are working withCleanChem

There is no doubt that New Zealand businesses are in for significant challenges with the new legislation in Health and Safety, which has real potential to create concern and frustration for employers and employees. The next twelve months is certainly going to be an exciting journey and CleanChem will be at the forefront of offering New Zealand's businesses health & safety support.

Winter Wellbeing Tip #4

30/06/2015 1:13 PM

This weeks Winter Wellbeing Tip is probably going to be one of the hardest that I am going to share with you...

Winter Wellbeing Tip Number 4 - Keep Exercising

It's hard to get up early to exercise when it's either pouring with rain or when there is a frost outside. It's also hard at the other end of the day when it's still raining and cold and dark by the time you finish work!

However, it is important to keep active during the Winter months in order to stay healthy. 

There are lots of options in terms of exercise; you could join a local gym (not so cold inside!). Classes are a great option to stay motivated. It's also a good idea to go pack a gym bag and go on your way home as once you are home, it's much harder to leave again. 

Another way to stay motivated is to exercise with a friend so that you can keep each other on track.

There are a number of exercise apps that you can download and use in the comfort of your own home. You Tube also have some great workout videos. You just need some time to trawl through them. 

Keep up the good work!

This weeks recipe:

Winter Salad - this is delicious as a side for grilled chicken or steak but it is also equally delicious as a meal in itself. I like to add some feta cheese to increase the protein in it. Leftovers also make a great lunchbox item!

Ingredients

  • 1 butternut squash, cut into thin wedges
  • 2 red onions, halved and cut into wedges
  • 4 parsnips, cut into wedges
  • 3 tbsp olive oil (try garlic or basil infused)
  • 1-2 tbsp clear honey
  • 1 small ciabatta, roughly torn into pieces (tomato and olive ciabatta works well)
  • 1 tbsp sunflower seeds, optional
  • 225g bag leaf spinach
  • 2 tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard

Method

  1. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Put the vegetables into a large roasting tin, drizzle with half the oil and season to taste. Roast for 20 mins, turning once in a while until softened. Drizzle with the honey. Scatter the torn ciabatta and sunfl ower seeds over the top and return to the oven for a further 5 mins or until toasted.
  2. Put the spinach into a large bowl and tip in the vegetables and ciabatta. Whisk the vinegar, mustard and remaining oil together, season to taste and toss into the salad until the spinach wilts slightly. Serve immediately.

Winter Wellbeing Tip #3

23/06/2015 2:49 PM

Another week down and it's only getting colder and wetter, reading the paper today, it seems that last night was the coldest night that the country has had in years!!

We have had a busy and productive week here at CleanChem, it must be the influx of people wanting warm outdoor gear.

Winter Wellness is even more imperative when we are busy - who has time to take time off work when we are sick?

TIP #3: - Wash your hands

This may seem obvious, but you would be amazed at how many people forget to do this or don't do this properly. Thorough hand washing is the number one way to stop the spread of germs. Make sure you dry them properly as well as germs love damp areas. 

If you suffer from dry hands after washing, particularly if you are washing them often; keep a tube of hand cream handy to use regluarly. 

 

This weeks recipe is a delicious vegetarian comfort meal from the Healthy Food Guide Magazine - 

Pumpkin and Spinach Canneloni

Ingredients:

  • 750g pumpkin, peeled, cut in chunks
  • 1 large bunch spinach, trimmed
  • 6 spring onions, trimmed, white part only, thinly sliced
  • 250g low-fat cottage cheese
  • pinch nutmeg
  • black pepper, to season
  • 4 fresh lasagne sheets, cut in half
  • 400ml can tomato and basil pasta sauce
  • 1/2 cup grated reduced-fat cheddar cheese

Method:

Preheat oven to 180°C. Lightly grease a 1 1/2-litre (6 cup-capacity) ovenproof baking dish.

Cook pumpkin in a large saucepan of boiling water for 10 minutes or until tender. Drain, mash roughly with a fork then set aside to cool slightly. Blanch spinach in boiling water for 30 seconds. Rinse in cold water and drain well. Squeeze out excess moisture then chop roughly.

Place pumpkin, spring onions, spinach, cottage cheese and nutmeg in a large bowl. Season with pepper. Mix together.

Spoon 4 tablespoons (1/3 cup) filling in the middle of each lasagne sheet. Fold sheet to enclose filling. Spread 1/3 cup (80ml) pasta sauce in the bottom of prepared dish. Place cannelloni on top in a single layer. Repeat with remaining sheets and filling.

Pour remaining tomato sauce over cannelloni, season well with pepper and sprinkle with cheese. Bake for 30 minutes, or until cheese has melted and is bubbling. Serve with a side of winter vegetables.

Enjoy!

Winter Wellbeing Tip #2

16/06/2015 12:21 PM

I hope you all had a lovely week! 

Here is Tip #2 of our Winter Wellness tips:

Eat Well - 

This may seem like a simple thing to do, however sometimes it's hard when you arrive home in the dark to a cold house in Winter to think about cooking a hearty meal. It is so much easier to pick something up on the way home. 

However, by making the effort to cook a meal, particularly one with lean protein will go a long way in helping your immune system to stay healthy. 

Here's a healthy and hearty meal that I cooked for my family last week and it had rave reviews!

Moroccan Lamb with couscous:

  •  1 tbs olive oil   
  •   540 g diced lean lamb leg, (lean), diced (or you could use beef)   
  •   1 medium brown onion, thinly sliced   
  •   2 medium carrot, thinly sliced   
  •  1 tbs Moroccan seasoning   
  •  3 tsp plain flour   
  •  2 cup(s) chicken stock, (500ml)   
  •   1 tsp orange rind, finely grated   
  •  1/2 cup(s) orange juice, (125ml)   
  •  8 individual fresh dates, pitted, halved   
  •  200 g dry couscous   
  •   1 cup(s) no-fat Greek-style natural yoghurt, (280g)   
  •   3/4 cup(s) fresh coriander  
Method:
  • 1. Preheat oven to 200°C or 180°C fan-forced. Heat half the oil in a tagine or medium flameproof casserole dish over medium-high heat. Cook lamb, in batches, for 5 minutes or until browned. Transfer to a bowl.

  • 2. Heat remaining oil in dish. Add onion and carrot and cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until softened. Add seasoning and flour and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Combine 1 cup (250ml) stock, rind and juice in a jug and gradually stir into onion mixture until combined. Bring to the boil. Return lamb to dish with dates. Cover and bake for 1 hour 15 minutes or until lamb is tender.

  • 3. Meanwhile, place couscous in a medium heatproof bowl. Bring remaining stock to the boil in a small saucepan. Pour stock over couscous. Stir, cover and set aside for 3–5 minutes or until liquid has absorbed. Scrape with a fork to separate grains. Place yoghurt and coriander in a food processor. Process until smooth.

  • 4. Divide couscous among serving plates. Top with lamb tagine, coriander yoghurt and extra coriander. Serve.

You could try this in the slow cooker as well in order to save time at the end of the day. I would just make the carrots a bit chunkier and put the dates in for the last hour or so. 

Enjoy and stay warm this week!

Winter Wellbeing Tip #1

9/06/2015 2:18 PM

Over the next few weeks, I'll be sharing some tips about how to stay well during the Winter months. 

It appears that the Wintery Weather is well and truly here to stay for the next few months. I'm sure whatever part of the country you are in, you are wrapping up warm and finding it harder to get out of bed in the mornings!

Winter tends to be a time when we get sick more easily and it's harder to stay motivated and on track with a healthy lifestyle. 

Tip #1:

Help to ward off the dreaded flu this Winter season by getting the flu vaccine - it's a relatively small price to pay for good health this Winter and certain people (people at high risk ie. those with Asthma and expectant Mothers) may even be funded by the government. 

Recipe of the Month:

Tasty Leek and Potato Soup - This is a favourite in our household and is so quick and easy to whip up!

Ingredients:

  • 60g Butter
  • 2 Leeks, chopped
  • 3 Cups Chicken Stock
  • 2 good sized Potatoes, peeled & cubed
  • 1/2 Cup Milk
  • Salt & Pepper

Method:

  1. Melt butter in a large pot on the stove.
  2. Add the chopped leeks - cook until soft.
  3. Add the chicken stock & chopped potatoes - bring to the boil for 15-20mins until potatoes are tender.
  4. Remove from the stove - stir in milk.
  5. Season with a good amount of salt & pepper.
  6. Allow to cool slighty and then puree.

Enjoy!
