June 28, 2009: Be prepared

With the start date now less than a month away I am making sure that I have all the items I will need on the expedition checklist. From suitable clothing for the heat, humidity and conditions of the expedition site to High SPF sun screen, insect repellent and a personal first aid kit. With my interest in cycling I have been lucky enough to travel to areas of the world as diverse as the Lofoten Islands in the Arctic Circle, Cuba, and Kerala in Southern India so know the importance good planning and packing. The importance of health and safety throughout Alcoa has unquestionably been an aid in this respect. Making sure to take the right equipment, assessing the risks and either avoiding them or planning for them are all things we should be doing every day at work and at leisure to ensure we remain safe and healthy.
