Haws Corporation Tempered Water Nevada USA, Singapore - These 5 Emergency Equipment FAQ’s Can Keep You Out of Trouble

1. How do you determine if you need a safety shower versus just an eye/face wash?

It depends on what the potential hazard is. We advocate that an eye/face wash should be the requirement over an eyewash as it is rare for a chemical to only splash into your eyes and not on your face as well. A combination shower and eye/face wash is necessary when the SDS for the chemicals you are using require one. If contact with the skin is not harmful, but contact with eyes would be, then an eyewash or eye/face wash only is suitable. If there is any potential hazardous skin contact, then a shower is most appropriate.

2. What are the types of chemicals when used in the workplace require the use of an eyewash station?

We recommend viewing your SDS’s (safety data sheet) and looking under the Proper PPE and First Aid requirements. Most SDS’S require some sort of emergency equipment along with a required flow time of 15 minutes and sometimes longer.

3. For portable or gravity-fed eyewash stations, what’s the standard for draining and refilling the tank? Along with the additive.

As there are a couple of different designs on the market, I cannot provide a specific “standard” you should follow. The ANSI requirement is that any portable or self-contained eyewash should be visually inspected weekly to determine if the flushing fluid needs to be exchanged or supplemented. The units should be maintained as per the manufacturer’s specific model instructions. For Haws, and most other manufacturer’s units, using potable water and a sterile bacteriostatic additive exchange is required every three months as well as rinsing the unit clean between the exchanges. If you are not using an additive, then the water should be exchanged on a minimal weekly basis, with a thorough tank cleaning monthly.

4. What is the standard for testing the eyewashes and showers?

ANSI Z358.1 has specific standards for testing based on the type or style of equipment in use. As a general statement, equipment needs to be inspected weekly to ensure that there is a flushing fluid supply and that the equipment is in good repair. If the equipment is of a plumbed design, then it should also be activated weekly to clear the supply line of any sediment build up and to minimize any microbial contamination due to stagnant water. The weekly inspection also looks at the location to ensure that the equipment is well lit, identified with signage, free of obstruction and on the same level as the hazard. Annually, the equipment needs to be inspected against all aspects of the ANSI Z358.1 standard including flow capabilities, temperature and irrigation patterns. Please view our full on-demand ANSI Standard web seminar on our Haws YouTube page.

5. What requirements are there for disposing used water from an eyewash or shower?

Waste or “grey” water is not in the scope of the ANSI Z358.1 standard however the appendix of the standard does call out that consideration should be given to proper disposal of waste flushing fluids. Freezing temperatures, drainage, elevated showers, and pollutants are some but not all of the considerations. It may depend on your specific situation so I would recommend consulting authorities on your local, state, and federal regulations.

Haws Corporation Tempered Water Nevada USA, Singapore: Units in Action: Mission Readiness Donates Hydration Stations

Four donated Brita Hydration Stations were recently installed at College of the Desert in Palm Desert, CA with the support of Mission: Readiness – Military Leaders For Kids and Regional Access Project Foundation. College of the Desert serves over 10,000 students and, as one of 112 community colleges in California, represents a vital part of the world’s largest system of higher education.

Increasing access and consumption of safe drinking water where youth live, learn and play is an important initiative taking hold in California and across the nation. Studies link rising obesity rates to the consumption of sugary beverages, among other factors. These are beverages with added sugar and include sodas, sports drinks, and fruit-flavored drinks. Water is an essential, calorie-free alternative that can be used to help combat childhood obesity and improve students’ readiness to learn by maintaining proper hydration.

Since 1964, Pathfinder Ranch has been committed to providing youth from diverse backgrounds with affordable outdoor education and summer learning programs. Research shows that during summer, children (on average) fall one month behind where they left off academically at the end of the school year. Programs like the ones offered at Pathfinder Ranch can help mitigate this learning loss.bhs install4

During a picnic to recognize supporters of the Ranch, Mission: Readiness – Military Leaders For Kids members, Major General (Ret.) John Bianchi, U.S. Army and Brigadier General (Ret.) Guido Portante, U.S. Army helped unveil a new Hydration Station donated by Brita in partnership with Mission: Readiness that will serve 9,000 youth from across the region who participate in quality programming at Pathfinder Ranch on an annual basis.

Heimdal Online Security - Weekly Security Roundup #53: There’s a Scam for That

It’s been a tumultuous week for cyber security professionals. Between a large array of scams and the TalkTalk breach,

the same key subjects are touched on again and again:

• password security
• software patching
• cyber security education, even in its most basic form.

We’ve shown how trusted brands, such as IKEA, are being used in spam campaigns to trick victims into opening malware-laden attachments. The same type of attack impersonated

Booking.com, and it’s likely that these type of threats will continue to multiply.

This waves of spoofing attacks have determined Google to take Gmail and move it to the strictest DMARC implementation available, in order to keep its users protected from spoofing and

spam attacks.

Dridex is active again and it seems like everyone’s had enough of it, but that doesn’t mean that it’s not pilfering unsuspecting users as you’re reading this.

In this context, corporate cyber security may sound like a nightmare to deal with (and we’re not saying it’s not). This is why our CEO, Morten Kjaersgaard, shared some thoughts on a matrix

that can help prioritize tasks and investments in cyber security tools. It could really help CIOs and CISOs in need.

Let’s review the weekly security roundup to see the must-read news that could help us all be a bit more savvy about our online protection.

Security articles of the week

1. Updates on the TalkTalk breach

The case of one of the biggest data breaches recorded this year has escalated rather quickly. There have been extortion attempts, a teenager was arrested for alleged involvement in the

attack, and cyber security specialists discussed the worrying fact that this was the third attack on the British company in the past 12 months.

But are companies like this one just hiding behind implausible excuses? John E. Dunn seems to believe so.
2. Spam and malware go hand in hand

Spam used to be rather harmless back in the day, but now it comes with attachments that trigger serious malware infections or malicious links that can compromise your system in a

matter of seconds. Take this example of a campaign that impersonated UK policemen or this one that targeted website owners with fake suspension notices.
3. Cyber crime and politics often mix

We’d certainly not want this to be so, but cyber criminals and politics never could stay apart when it comes to malicious activity. Such is the case of the Russian cyber spies who targeted

the MH17 crash investigation and attempted to compromise the data used in it.
4. Serious lack of basic cyber security awareness

Pluging a USB stick you found on the street in your work laptop could have potential disastrous consequences. This may sound obvious to you, but it turns out that it’s not as evident for

everyone. A recent social experiment unveiled some unnerving facts.
5. New online habits, new scams

“There’s a scam for that” is the new “there’s an app for that”. Lured in by free wine offerings? Get some malware instead. If it’s too good to be true, it most certainly is a trap.
6. October’s list of data breaches and cyber attacks

It does not look good. But do see for yourself.
7. Don’t leave your laptop in your hotel room

It may sound safer than carrying it around with you, but this real life example will prove you wrong.
8. Fixing IoT’s broken security model

We know it needs to be done, but how? This article offers a perspective on where we could start. And we have to start. As soon as possible.
9. Apparent browser ransomware targeting porn sites

Ransomware is such a scary threat that even impersonating is has started to become effective. Attackers have been threatening porn websites’ users recently, tricking them to pay hefty

sums through scareware in their browser. More than 50 countries have already been affected.
10. What will 2016 bring?

It’s not too early to start pondering on what next year may look like in terms of cyber security. We already singled out trends like ransomware, mobile malware and hacktivism, but we

have to be prepared for anything and continue to work to reduce vulnerabilities that attackers can exploit.

We might reach a point where there are so many types of malware that there’s a different variant to target a user according to his deepest vulnerabilities. It’s already happening, but we’re

not helpless against the bad guys.

A little can go a long way in terms of educating ourselves and those around us to adopt some basic online security habits. You can even learn all about them for free!

Bacall Conniff and Associates Review: Overview of the Restaurant Business

Ever thought how restaurants began? Have you realized that the evolution of this type of business affected everyone? And how its growth transformed the industrialization and the

economic system of the world?

Back in the days, people especially those who inhabit a place were used to farming and breeding of animals for their food. The birth of town and cities where people engaged in much more

specialized activity leads for many to delegate the former home-based task of cooking food to a person or an enterprise that made good money doing so.

The restaurant came into existence merely to save time and also to avoid the strenuous routine of preparing food each and every day. Each restaurant has a unique menu list where they

can showcase their signature dishes. Anyone could even order American, Japanese, European and Italian dishes and have it delivered at their doorstep.

Nowadays, many entrepreneurs are entering the restaurant industry causing a variety and sheer

abundance of food choices. The love of many for burgers and doughnut has allowed these businesses to become a multi-billion dollar industry. Even the simple beverage like coffee drove

the expansion of restaurant chains. The restaurant did not only change the economic texture of civilization but also the lifestyles of people in general. Many people with hectic lifestyles

rarely cook at home and settle for take-out foods on working days.

The inescapable growth of fast food chains globally brought one negative effect on people's health. Food prepared by these establishments contributes little or no nutritional value to

consumer’s health. But with the advancement of the wellness and fitness industry, many people nowadays choose healthy food options thus making restaurant owners to incorporate

healthy food choices into their menu. This shows that the restaurant industry will continue to change and accommodate consumers demand.

Bacall Conniff and Associates Certified Public Accountants are exceptionally good in providing accounting and financial service to the highly competitive restaurant industry.
