Re: How many of us are still at our work locations?

Still in work at a manufacturing company. Suppliers are dropping like flies, so we're going to run out of materials very, very soon. Doubt I'll still be here tomorrow.

Re: Airflow indicator on unfiltered LEV system

Thanks guys, much appreciated.
I had a conversation with the LEV installer/supplier and he claims he has never needed to install airflow indicators in any of his systems or that there is a legal requirement for them.
Just wanted to clarify the facts before going back to him.

We are currently running a skeleton crew to keep the business ticking over, while the employees are on a 2 week paid leave. I'm working with the management team to get us back to ful...
