Report with thanks to
THE Health and Safety Executive published a new policy on Intellectual Property Rights arising from its research activity. The new policy means that in most cases the intellectual property rights in research done for HSE will remain with the suppliers or contractors rather than HSE.
The document sets out how HSE will apply its new policy and explains how it will promote the exploitation of the intellectual property. Generated as a result of the research activity funds in pursuing its mission to ensure that risks to people’s health and safety from work activities are properly controlled.
Dr Paul Davies, HSE’s Chief Scientist and Corporate Science and Analytical Services Director said,
“In future, except where specific exemptions apply, the ownership of intellectual property and the associated responsibility for commercial exploitation will be vested in the organisations that undertake the research rather than remain with HSE.”

DOCTORS and nurses from Hightown Village Surgery will be swapping their stethoscopes for running shoes at this year’s
five kilometre Sefton Corporate Cup to raise funds for charity.
No less than three teams of medical and reception staff from the surgery at St George’s Road - will be practising putting their best foot forward ready for the event in mid April.
Karen Bright, a receptionist at the surgery said:- “When we did it last year we really enjoyed it and were enthusiastic to do it again this year. Last year some of the staff couldn’t do it for various reasons but this year we have all got together to take part.”
This is the second year Sefton has been involved in the Corporate Series which attracted 576 runners is likely to become the number one event in every Sefton runner’s diary.
The event is the first run of the NHS North West Corporate Series, which begins the Sefton Health Festival, starts at Victoria Park, Southport. The route will take participants along Old Esplanade Road, Weld Road and Rotten Row, before returning to Victoria Park.
AN evening of nostalgia on April 27 looks set to see the return of Frank Sinatra and plenty of old memories in the guise of Stephen Triffit accompanied by the Nelson Riddle Orchestra at the Empire Theatre in Liverpool.
Triffit, best known for his portrayal of ole blue eyes in ‘Sammy and Dean – The Rat Pack Live from Las Vegas’, for which he received resounding critical acclaim upon his last visit to Liverpool. He is no stranger to performing Sinatra favourites such as ‘Fly me to the moon’ and ‘My Way’ as for the past two years his American dates in Atlantic city and Las Vegas have won him many loyal fans.
The event is considered to be a unique performance for one night only as the support of the genius of Nelson Riddle in the form of his protégé son Christopher remain true to his fathers traditions.
