The National Merchant Buying Society (NMBS) is the most successful Buying Society in the UK for independent builders, plumbers, hardware, timber and roofing merchants. The primary aim of NMBS is to enable their members to get the best possible deals from suppliers through exclusive offers and terms, via centralised purchasing, marketing and event activities.
NMBS have just partnered with the Diabetes Safety Organisation (DSO) to offer their members and suppliers discounted access to the DSO online courses on diabetes understanding and safety. It is partnerships like this that will allow both smaller and large organisations to gain a greater understanding of diabetes and recognise the daily risks that are associated with the condition.
When having a hypo, people can appear drunk or black out. With 191,000 people thought to have diabetes in the construction industry, the sooner we can educate companies and individuals on how to manage this condition, the better.
The DSO look forward to working with NMBS to continue to raise awareness and increase the understanding of this hidden epidemic.
