Extreme heat: Are you prepared for summer work?

The approach of summer is a reminder to us all of the need to recognize, and act to prevent, the harmful effects of excessive heat. The White House has designated May 23–27, 2016, as Extreme Heat Week, during which Federal agencies will work with community planners and public health officials to enhance community preparedness for extreme heat events. Workers are particularly vulnerable to the health impacts of heat exposure.

Want to live longer? Plant a tree near your house

Women live longer in areas with more green vegetation, according to new research funded by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), part of the National Institutes of Health. Women with the highest levels of vegetation, or greenness, near their homes had a 12 percent lower death rate compared to women with the lowest levels of vegetation near their homes.

Chronic fatigue patients more likely to suppress emotions

Chronic fatigue syndrome patients report they are more anxious and distressed than people who don't have the condition, and they are also more likely to suppress those emotions. In addition, when under stress, they show greater activation of the biological ”fight or flight” mechanism, which may add to their fatigue, according to new research published by the American Psychological Association (APA).

Plumber dies after being hit by a car

Had his employer properly created a work zone, a passing car on Philadelphia's 63rd Street might not have struck and killed a 27-year-old plumber working to repair an underground leak on a mid-November night in 2015.

Firing Range Lead Reclamation Service | Lead shot reclamation

Ohio officials are asking the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for federal aid to help them clean up a public park in Miami Township. Layer Park remains closed after environmental officials found unacceptably high levels of lead in the soil.



The Ohio EPA had performed tests of the park's soil in 2013, but not until earlier this year did township officials inform them that the park was once the site of an outdoor skeet shooting range, according to agency spokesman James Lee. The park will remain closed until further notice by state and local health officials.



According to Amy Wiedeman, assistant administrator for Ohio's Montgomery County, the land was an active shooting range from the 1930s to the 1950s. It was donated to the county in 1972 and is now shared with the township.



Environmental officials have yet to determine the potential costs of lead cleanup on the land. Officials from the U.S. EPA say that if a responsible party cannot be determined, the agency will use their appropriated funds to address the contamination.



Indoor and outdoor firing ranges operate across the United States for recreational firearm use and self-defense practice. Spending too much time at these ranges, however, can have significant health and environmental effects. Contamination from lead-based ammunition can cause inhalation of airborne lead particles by both workers and customers at these ranges. As seen in the case of the Ohio park, it can also create environmental hazards.



To encourage personal health and environmental safety, the EPA has issued best management practices for outdoor firing ranges.MT2 feels it crucial to provide remediation services to firing ranges.  Many laws are now in place about lead management.  Firearm safety is not only about the gun.

Considering Lead Paint Removal for Your Home? Painting Over Lead Paint

painting wallDo you have an older home that is laced with lead based paints? Are they now starting to show signs of peeling and chipping? If that is so, here are some points to consider when dealing with lead based paint in your environment.


Lead paint is a dangerous thing to have in your home. Pregnant women and young children are as risk of being exposed to it and it becomes a hazard if the paint starts to chip from the walls with young children present. Removing lead based paint on your own can actually increase the risk of lead exposure. Every precaution must be taken to ensure that exposure is kept at a minimum. This type of exposure must especially be kept away from women, children, and pets. 


It is never recommended to be living in the house with lead based paint, but if that is the case, then the best method of getting rid of the paint would be to work on one room at a time and seal the room from the rest of the house with heavy plastic. Removal must be followed according to standards set by the RCRA, OSHA, and EPA standards.

How an electrical current affects the human body

When someone suffers an electrical shock, they actually are – at that moment – part of an electrical circuit. The severity of the injuries they sustain depends on three primary factors: the amount of current flowing through the body (measured in amperes); the path of the current through the body and the length of time the body is in the circuit.

Lead Paint Removal Should Be Left to the Professionals

foreman clipboard cellphone-plainAmerica's love affair with lead-based paint was one that lasted for decades. Prior to 1978, the bright white paints favored by many homeowners and endorsed by government agencies for schools and other government buildings, was heavily leaded paint. Lead, a highly toxic metal since linked to severe developmental problems in children, and host of nervous system and other disorders in adults, was a highly prized ingredient in paint. Although the primary colorant in white paint, lead was also a key ingredient in the entire color spectrum of paints, where it was used to speed drying, add durability, and protect paint from excess moisture.


The United States Consumer Product Safety Commission banned the use of lead paint in residential structures and government buildings in 1977. The CPSC also banned use of lead paint in furniture and children's toys to protect children from the risk of lead poisoning from exposure to lead-based paint.


Although nearly three decades have passed since that ban, the legacy of that love affair lives on in many residences, government buildings, and commercial buildings. Unfortunately, as this paint has aged, it has become more fragile, more friable, and more likely to come in contact with people through direct skin contact or by being breathed in as lead-laden dust.


This risk is increased exponentially by demolition or renovation of older homes or buildings that contain lead paint.


For this reason, any lead removal program should be left to a professional, experienced lead removal company.


A professional lead removal company will be able to properly assess the best way to remove leaded paint or other lead-containing building materials. They will also be able to guarantee that the lead removal project adheres to the standards and guideline for safe lead removal as defined by the Environmental Protection Agency's Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). The RCRA is used to collectively describe the guidelines and policies of the EPA in regards to the safe recovery, removal, and cleanup of hazardous waste such as lead.


In addition, trained removal specialist can also be trusted to make sure that your work site meets Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidelines to ensure the health of anyone working on or near the lead-removal project.


Removing lead is a serious project that carries with it considerable risk, risk which can be greatly reduced by choosing the right company to handle your lead removal project.

Where to Find Key Influencers in Your Niche

f you want to take advantage of influencer marketing and leverage the huge followings of leaders in your business niche, the first step is to find them. Here are some great ways to discover who people in your niche listen to.




Recognized Authors



Look for authors of trade magazines or industry blogs. Since anyone can start and write a blog, look for blogs that are widely read and trusted in your industry. It's even better if the author has an established reputation offline in the media as well. You can do a Google search for blogs using keywords in your niche, take the results with the highest page rank, and look at their authors. Another great way to find influential authors is by searching on Amazon.



Social Media



Use hashtag searches to find influencers on social media sites like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. The great thing about social media is that it delivers stats about influencers directly through their number of followers. However, you shouldn't just go by followers alone. See how much actual activity there is on their profile and the kinds of conversations they're having. You can also search on social media to see who people are mentioning.



Your Followers



Use your followers to find out who else they follow. You can sometimes glean this information by simply looking at their social media profiles and the other content that they share. Social media sites like Facebook allow you to see who your friends and followers like. You'll also see their shared content. Another idea is to simply ask.



Offline



A great place to look is offline. Look at trade shows, events, and seminars. Who's hosting them or presenting at them? What are the biggest names? This is a great way to find local influencers in a specific geographical area. An advantage of finding influencers offline is that it gives you a good chance to start building an authentic relationship with them in person, which is much easier than connecting only online.



Tools



There are also tools you can use that are specifically designed for finding key influencers. These include Klout, Traackr, Kred, Twellow and more. These tools measure the influence of a person using internet, social media, and search data. Some of them offer very detailed profiles that can help you get a good start on your research.



Once you find an influencer somewhere, you should look for them everywhere else as well. For example, if you attend a trade show and come out with a list of potential influencers, check out each through Google search, social media, tools, and so on. Cross-check to get a big-picture view of just how influential the person is and to whom.

Lead Paint Demolition: Still A Modern Problem- Industrial Projects Lead Paint Removal

factory buildingWhen people heard about lead poisoning in Flint, Michigan, most of them were scratching their heads in confusion. Lead poisoning? That would have been like a news story about how scurvy just made a roaring comeback when no one was looking. We realized that lead was a problem decades ago... that's why we stopped putting it in our paint, and in our gasoline.


What most of us forgot, though, and which news sources like Last Week Tonight have dug up, is that we are still inundated with lead. All that lead paint that was put up in the past? All those lead pipes we installed? Well, those construction projects were built to last, and now we're dealing with the long-term consequences of putting lead in practically everything we built for so many years.


Demolition Preparation: Industrial Projects Lead Paint Removal


Demolition might seem like an ideal solution for getting rid of a lead problem. However, it's important to remember that lead dust is a huge health and environmental hazard. If you have lead paint on your walls, there is no surer way to create a huge cloud of dust than by knocking those walls down indiscriminately.


If you're going to deal with a lead problem as part of a demolition project, then you need to remove the lead before you can demolish anything. And, because lead is such a hazard, it's important not to cut corners when it comes to disposing of it. While proper lead disposal can slow down a project, and add cost to the bottom line, there is no shortcut when it comes to lead. Just like asbestos, and other hazardous materials we once commonly built with, we have to deal with the last generation of hazards, and cut them out cleanly before we can proceed with building the future.


ECOBOND® LBP Lead Defender®'s patented lead sealant and treatment formula contains an advanced technology that seals and treats the lead and lead dust in lead-based paint. The formula includes lead treatment reagents, paint penetrators and high quality water based paint providing up to a 95% reduction in lead hazards* and controls the spread of airborne lead dust by up to 99% and now resists acid rain.**

COSTLY RISKS OF HIRING SMALL-SCALE LEAD SHOT RECLAMATION SALVAGERS FOR YOUR GUN RANGE

There is little regulation governing environmental control on gun ranges, but lead contamination contracted on gun ranges impacts both customers and range employees who can then carry contamination home to their families. Unless a conclusive blood-test shows an employee has lead poisoning, OSHA typically will not examine a gun range, yet this OSHA press release documents a long list of safety violation citations and penalties incurred by an Illinois gun range in 2012. Proposed penalties in this case totaled a whopping $111,000.



The onus for safety will fall squarely on range owners. Failure to clean the range will eventually necessitate costly remediation; delaying will invite litigation from customers, employees, and outside contractors, including any under-qualified site cleaners hired for reclamation activity.



Reclamation companies must demonstrate an understanding of how lead is concentrated over a range site, especially if the site is hilly, rocky, full of clay or otherwise difficult to clean. If the range is indoors, the company needs expertise in cleaning ventilation systems. If a company cannot give an accurate estimation of the types of cleaning needed, the time cleaning will take, and the frequency with which the site will need cleaning, it will ultimately deliver a larger-than-expected bill.



A top-notch reclamation company should work within the shooting range schedule rather than disrupt guest activities during normal working hours. They should work field-by-field in order to accommodate any special events, and should explain how reclamation activity will affect existing vegetation. Disruptions in guest activity and surprise landscaping jobs can result in significant loss of revenue.




Reclamation companies must be insured and bonded; they are responsible for preventing blow-off or run-off of lead particles from the site. A reclamation company must show responsibility for possible deleterious

The Growth of Influencer Marketing and How You Can Get in on It

How to Get Started with Influencer Marketing




There are many different ways to get an influencer to market you. You could have them feature one of your products or services. You could create a piece of content for them to publish for you. One extremely easy technique is to interview the influencer or have them interview you. Even the simple mentioning of your name on social media can gain you many new followers.



The first step is to decide what you want to achieve and identify influencers that can help you do that. Choose influencers that have a great deal of reach and that are relevant to your business; in other words, they have the kind of audience you want. Once you've identified some good prospects and narrowed them down to a manageable number, you should start connecting with your influencers and figuring out what value you can offer them.



Influencer marketing is powerful because it's like a referral from a trusted friend. The only difference is that this trusted friend has thousands of fans and followers who are hungry for what you have to offer.
