Training Talk is BACK with a new sponsor, now format, and a funky new logo. The first episode of Season 2 features the show's new sponsor - ProTrainings - which is pioneering the use of "blended training" to make training more engaging and more accessible for students, and more cost effective for demolition companies.

The history of your company is an enormous source of pride, I am sure.   But they year in which your company was founded is of little or no interest to potential clients and has no place on the home page of your website. Welcome to the first-ever edition of the all-new Demolition Promotion podcast, exclusive to the Demolition News Radio network.

A joint venture between C&D Consultancy and Prosafe Consultants Limited recently delivered an important new demolition training course targeting the delicate and often overlooked issue of adult mental health awareness.  In this episode of Training Talk, we speak to Prosafe's Danny Kearney, one of the driving forces behind the new training course and a vocal advocate for greater mental health awareness across the industry.
This is the pilot episode of what we hope will evolve to become the latest series on the Demolition News Radio network. The basic premise of this show is very simple.   Take a dozen or so standard questions, and ask individuals from across the demolition spectrum to answer them as honestly and comprehensively as possible.   Over time, we are hoping this will give us all a unique insight into the industry, hence the name of the show. So, in our pilot show, we have set our dozen questions and asked Chris Charlton of CJ Charlton Group to share his insights.

Training Talk is a new show that is dedicated to the subject of demolition training, a sector that moves almost as fast as the industry it serves. In this launch episode, we are delighted to bring you the first part of a two-part interview with Howard Button and Lesley Ransome of the National Demolition Training Group. We sincerely hope you enjoy this launch episode and that you will check back soon for the second instalment.
February is the shortest month of the year so, traditionally, it has served up some of the lowest monthly totals on the BCLive league table. It does not enjoy the post-festive period upswing that characterises January and, this year, February serves as the beginning of the final countdown to Brexit and all the uncertainty that brings with it.  But the UK construction sector is notorious for ploughing its own furrow whilst marching to the beat of its own distinctive drum. So wouldn’t you just know that the UK construction sector would fly in the face of tradition and expectation by enjoying one of the biggest months since the BCLive league table was created?

 The annual general meeting of the UK's National Demolition Training Group took place in London on Friday last week.   But, at a time when the future of demolition training in the UK is at a crossroads, non-NFDC members were grossly under-represented.   Yet these same companies will be the first to complain if there is a hike in training costs.

Why demolition equipment manufacturers, dealers and distributors are more than just purveyors of "dumb iron"; and why the demolition industry needs them perhaps more than it cares to admit.
   After 11 consecutive months in which the value of new construction contract awards did not once dip below the £4.0 billion mark, the £2.7 billion posted in December 2018 was a bitter disappointment filled with ominous portent.  So was this merely a seasonal glitch or was it a sign that the pre-Brexit jitters have finally taken hold? We spoke to Builders Conference CEO Neil Edwards to find out.

Why I don't want my epitaph to read "he was quite good at spelling and grammar" and why, when the day of judgement comes, business accomplishments will likely count for very little.

The digger driver that rampaged through a Travelodge hotel lobby earlier this week throws a spotlight onto the evergreen issue of non and late payments in the UK construction sector.   In fact, this one man's actions were almost inevitable in a sector in which late payment by larger contractors is worn as a badge of honour; something to be proud of.

To post or not to post, that is the question.   Yesterday, we posted a 1987 BBC documentary on DemolitionNews.com.  It provided a fascinating insight into the demolition industry some three decades ago.   But it also featured a man that has subsequently been convicted of child sex crimes.   So should we have posted it or not?   Can we rewrite history by glossing over unpalatable events?  And if we can't post this video, should we continue to feature demolition firms that have been found guilty in the injury or death of a demolition worker?
After 11 consecutive months during which the BCLive league table of new contract awards never ONCE dipped below the £4 billion monthly total, could the industry achieve a full year of unsurpassed positivity and stability?

The fact that the demolition industry now has time to focus upon relatively minor health, safety and welfare issues is a sign of just how far the sector has come.
