    Why I am a standards-maker | Victoria Hurth

    Why I am a standards-maker | Victoria Hurth

    Standards affect all of us every day, wherever we go, whatever we do.
    By defining good practice, they help people and organizations to do things better. For all sorts of things, from nanotechnology to Net Zero guidance.
    And these standards are made by standards-makers – tens of thousands of people from around the world - who get together to agree good practice to the way things are made and done. All helping to make life easier, safer, and more enjoyable.
    In this episode, Matthew speaks to Dr Victoria Hurth, an award-winning standards-maker in the field of organizational governance.
    With some passion, Victoria describes her motivations for getting and staying involved in standards, the impact standards-making has had on her career, and her proudest standard-making moments.

    FROM THE ARCHIVE | Standards and potholes
    People can get passionate about potholes. They are a persistent problem for all road users and can cause personal injuries and damage to vehicles.
    In this episode, Matthew speaks to standards-makers Ian Walsh and Dominic Gardner, and BSI’s Gavin Jones, about the issue of standards and road surfacing.
    They discuss the standard BS 10947 for spray injection patching in particular, and how new technologies can be incorporated into standards.
    But mostly, it’s about potholes.

Fresh viewpoint on a necessary theme!

While the world of standard making me seem rather dull, and at times painful, the presenter does an excellent job of making the journey interesting and applicable to every day life. This is a great podcast for anyone interested in international or national standards, also those who are involved in policymaking, or who just want to make a change for good in this world.
