Importance of Concrete Jersey Barriers at Construction Sites

There are many reasons for using safety barriers in the construction industry. But the main reason behind this is: to protect the workers and also the public. For instance, just imagine – a worker falling from a height, and injuring himself or perhaps the fall results in his death. What happens if this same worker falls on an unsuspecting person who happens to be just passing the construction site at the moment? Shocking right…! You and your company should be liable on two accounts, i.e. both the worker and the public.

Here comes the importance of concrete jersey barriers. Barriers are an important factor to be considered not only for the construction industry but also for window cleaning or other maintenance work where heights and risks are involved. Protecting your workers not only impacts positively on your company’s safety record but also gives a very positive message to your workers. … Read the rest

Lessons for Sales

Whether you’re a fan of Tom Brady or not, you’ve got to agree he’s a winner. In fact, if he and the Patriots win this week’s Super Bowl, he will break the tie with Terry Bradshaw and Joe Montana of winning four Super Bowls. Tom Brady will have five, and he will be the best of the best.

There are lots of articles written about both Tom and coach Belichick, and the Patriots, and I read one last week that, yet again, provides a big lesson for all of us in sales.

How Can You Get Your Kids More Exposed to Nature?

“Nature always wears the colours of the spirit” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

We, as humans, moved from farming and herding towards a more civilized way of life but the truth is that there is an innate need within all of us to connect with nature. That’s why nature sounds and natural atmosphere soothes us. We have come so far along that most of us do not interact much with nature in our daily lives and have not visited natural spots for years.

Remember the time in our childhood when we used to go to playgrounds and parks to play? That’s gone too. The coming generation is entrenched in the digital world instead of exploring the wild.

Kids need to be outdoors

But your kids are missing an important piece of learning and experience if they are indoors all the time and do not interact with nature. YouTube and Netflix may … Read the rest
