Robin meets Dr Terri-Ann Berry and Leonie Metcalfe of the Mesothelioma Support & Asbestos Awareness Trust

Inspirational asbestos disease campaigner Mavis Nye has friends, contacts and influence all around the world.  

Mavis asked Robin (he's a Trustee of her Foundation) to look out for New Zealand mesothelioma campaigners Dr Terri-Ann Berry and Leonie Metcalfe of the Mesothelioma Support & Asbestos Awareness Trust whilst he was at the Auckland FAMANZ conference.

Not only did meet up with them - they gave him t-shirts and chocolates to take back to Mavis!

Robin with Terri-Ann & Leonie and then modelling the MSAA t-shirts with Alpha Tracker's Judy!

Follow and support the work of these two wonderful campaigns here:

FAMANZ Asbestos Conference 2023 underway! Collaboration is key

It's great for Alpha Tracker to be part of FAMANZ 2023, with a theme of "Collaboration is key".  

Held this year in Auckland, New Zealand, FAMANZ brings together the best and brightest minds in asbestos management (as well as Robin & Judy!) to share expertise and hear the latest from industry experts.

What an opportunity to meet the asbestos community of Australia & New Zealand

Big C visits the e-IC! Great for the team to meet Andrew, Paul & Mike and to see Big C up close

Andrew Bedwell brought his Big C boat to our e-Innovation Centre offices last week.  Andrew's world record Atlantic crossing attempt is even more inspiring when you are able to see the size of the vessel up close.

It was great for the team to see (and sit in!) Big C

Andrew brought awesome project photographer Paul (see together with Mike who helped the late Tom McNally with his own world record attempt.  Tom is one of the main inspirations behind Andrew's attempt at the record.

Great to see Alpha Legal mentioned by the FT Adviser

Jamie on our Support Desk spotted this:

Alpha Legal gets a mention in the FT

AEC busy with the new Water Hygiene module in Alpha Tracker

We have been working with leading environmental consultancy AEC to build a new Water Hygiene module for Alpha Tracker.

A big thank you to AEC for sharing their expertise

AEC water hygiene staff have now captured more than 10,000 site records using the updated Alpha Tracker Mobile app (available for Android or Apple devices).  The app works online and offline helping staff to be productive on sites even where there is no mobile signal or WiFi.

We've been careful to make the Water Hygiene features as customisable as possible with every type of water job available including Legionella risk assessments, temperature monitoring, shower cleans and every other option you can think of!

The Water Hygiene module will be available in Alpha Tracker Release 39, available in beta now.
