Do you have a working
evacuation plan for your business? Most cities require one as part of
their fire code standards. If not, it is so easy to put one into
action! Here are ways to create your own plan:
possible, create a documentation system of everyone in the
building at any given time. This includes, customers,
visitors, vendors, employees, and other personnel.
someone who will have the authority to order the building
evacuation. Be sure to have several other people trained as
backups, in the event the primary person is not present at
the time of an emergency.
at least two escape routes from every location in the building.
your evacuation route on a large map or poster board. This map
should be legible, visible, and easy to comprehend. Arrows
should indicate the path of travel and labels should show
different parts of the building.
evacuation maps in several locations of your
building. Include the evacuation plan procedure, and post
the names of personnel authorized to order a building
evacuation. If you have employees, this should be posted in
places where your workers congregate, such as break rooms and
all exits and fire doors are clearly marked according to local
your evacuation plan by holding random drills from your
building. Drills will allow you to identify weaknesses in your
plan and will help you and your employees fully understand their
role in the event of a real emergency.
We all like to
think our homes are secure, but there are some things homeowners
inadvertently do to make a burglars job
much easier. Are you guilty of any of these:
like to travel light, and often can't carry large
tools such as ladders. Fortunately for them, most
homeowners often leave these tools lying around lawns,
driveways, and side yards, waiting to be used. If you have
ladders, step stools, or anything a burglar can enter your home
with, lock them up, to keep them from moved
underneath a window.
sheds and garages not only have your valuables, such as lawn
mowers and other yard items, but are also great places for
burglars to hide. Keep them locked at all times if you're
inside. Sturdy padlocks or deadbolts are the best way to secure
door and window locks are things that are neglected in many homes. Check your
doors and windows to make sure they are closing and locking
securely. Repair and replace as needed. Don't give burglars an
easy way in.
leave the keys in any vehicle, even if it's in a closed and
locked garage. Doing so makes it easy for the vehicle to be
stolen, especially when you're asleep or not home. Don't hang
keys to your car, home, or storage shed on hooks outside the
door, or next to a window. This again makes it easy for crooks
to steal from you.
It Slices, It
Ever wished there
was a neat and non-messy way to slice your favorite sticky pastry?
Using a fork or knife makes a big mess with sugary pastries. There
are crumbs everywhere, it tears and stuff sticks to the knife. Well,
never fear - there's now a new solution on the horizon! A water
powered laser. Yep!
Using water jets that are ultra-high pressured with between 15,000
psi to 90,000 psi, that pulses through an
opening just 0.004 inches in diameter at three times the speed of
sound, this gizmo from Canadian company Paprima,
is a great choice for the cooking techno geek.
The water jet
slicer uses ordinary tap water, and cuts through fruity, sugar glazed
pastries faster, and cleaner than any knife there is. Despite the water jet's power,
the machine's tiny opening maintains a delicate slice - so it can
also cut through soft items like fresh fruit. Developers say it is an
excellent choice when processing viscous, gelatinous, and
multi-ingredient food products such as baked goods and confectionery
and is much more sanitary than knife blades."
Now you can
enjoy all the goodies that you're favorite Danish or sweet roll has
to offer without cleaning up a mess of crumbs
