Regional networking events and a new way to bench-mark risk management decisions are amongst the FPL customer experience team's plans for 2018 and are launched today on a new page of our website here.
The new SHEQ Planet - community and events page describes these new initiatives and also provides part of FPL's response to GDPR and PECR, empowering interested prospects to determine how they want to engage with us, in compliance with the new data protection legislation coming into force next year.
FPL is all about long term relationships, not quick wins, and is committed to providing value and support for operations and compliance professionals. The new page describes:
A new series of free networking micro-events to be held at venues across the UK. FPL will provide the venue and the coffee and an open door policy for all registered compliance and operations professionals. This will be a no-selling, just networking environment with no headline sponsors promoting products and services, just compliance professionals sharing challenges and experiences with us and each other in an informal, drop-in and circulate format.
Also described on the new web page is a new bench-marking forum - an anonymous platform where anonymously submitted questions can be circulated periodically to participants via a simple survey and answers then re-communicated out to all participants.
You and us - the long term
FPL's services are broad - and are not easy to define, and we understand that prospects might be interested in exploring them with us - just not right now. We invite prospects to take a look through our website at their leisure and see what interests them - and to then tell us about these areas and when and how they'd like to hear from us next to move the conversation forward.
And lastly, the new page re-promotes our growing social media platforms encouraging prospects (and clients) to stay in touch with us on a less formal basis.
These are exciting times for FPL and we look forward to providing these value added services to our target market in the New Year.
Today we updated our new slide deck, adding narration to help walk prospective clients through our services for the first time.
FPL's new client experience team has put together a great new slide deck that gets to the heart of what we offer. You can view it here and schedule a call with us to discuss further on 01252 656371.
New FPL recruits Dawn and Susan have been hard at work this month reviewing how we engage with prospects and clients and how we remain in touch and make ourselves easy to reach. They've been full of great ideas and this web app along with the refreshed social media strategy are the initial ones we've been able to deliver so far. Go to our home page www.fpl.uk.com to find out more.

A special effects company whose confetti cannon hit a woman in the face – leaving her permanently blinded in one eye – has been fined £16,000.
James McMahon and Tory Harper, who ran the Knowsley-based UK Effects.co.uk Ltd were described by a judge as “naive and cavalier” over the accident at Liverpool super-club Cream in 2013.
Liverpool Crown Court was told how Kitty Dollah was seriously hurt when the “Stadium Shot” cannon was discharged at around 1am on 27 December 2013. The cannon had been installed in the courtyard and dance areas of the Wolstenholme Square nightclub and had been fired five times before the accident occurred.
We love our new FPL mobile compliance vehicle - part transport, part meeting space, part mobile HQ, part storage (fluorescent stuff, massive text books, clip boards, forms, signage etc) and part advertising board complete with dubious Dad-rock soundtrack.
In April 2016, Environment Agency officers visited a site in Gateshead which was covered in construction waste, including wood, pallets, old kitchen units and electrical waste. There was also a skip full of building waste.
They established that a company had been a tenant at the site, but had left a few weeks earlier.
The Environment Agency wrote to the landowner asking for the waste to be removed – which it did at a cost of £7,000

More farmers should be allowed to maintain local rivers in a bid to reduce the risk of flooding, says the NFU.
Farmers have long sought permission to maintain rivers themselves, arguing that they could do so more effectively than the Environment Agency (EA), which currently looks after catchments.
Eight people, including two children, had to be taken to hospital after incorrectly mixed chemicals caused a reaction that forced a Derby gym to be closed.
HSE comments: "As in this case, the failure of clients and principal contractors to comply with these legal duties can have tragic consequences."
"Clients must ensure contractors have the appropriate skills, knowledge and experience for the task, and must make suitable arrangements for managing a project,"
"In addition to the latter contractors must also take into account the general principles to eliminate, so far as is reasonably practicable, foreseeable risks to the health or safety of those affected by the work."
