How to Read the News When You’re in High School

If you don’t pay any attention to the news now, it gets harder as you get older to know where to start.

How to delete 99.9%* of your digital footprint

Cultivating a popular social media account can get you an audience of millions, and what's not to love about that? Well, an active online life could leave you vulnerable to hackers and with cyber attacks on the rise, it's worth being a little paranoid.

The National Safety Council has a team of consultants who travel across the country – and the world – to visit worksites and conduct safety audits. But no matter where each team member is, chances are good that he or she will spot one or more of seven common safety hazards.

Bureau of Labor Statistics data shows that falls to a lower level accounted for 14 percent of all fatalities in 2014, and OSHA standards related to scaffolding and ladders are regularly among the most frequently cited violations.

Dankert, an NSC senior consultant based in Arizona, said hazards associated with working at height can originate from a lack of understanding. Some of those locations may be surprising. Recognizing hidden dangers: 25 steps to a safer office. Falls are the most common source of injury in an office, although workers also are injured by being struck by or against objects, and suffering ergonomic injuries.Some simple changes to the workspace can be effective in eliminating hazards and reducing the number of injuries.

Administrative interventions such as scheduled walk-throughs and the establishment of a formal reporting system can help protect workers in an office environment. It's fairly obvious that safety and health hazards can exist on worksites filled with heavy machinery and equipment, where employees often are required to engage in strenuous manual labor. A job where most of the work tasks are completed while sitting in a chair in a climate-controlled office building would seem less fraught with danger. However, a surprising number of hazards can be present in an office setting.

Here are 25 steps you can take to reduce the risk of injury among your office staff. Happy Holidays from Frosty the Cell Man. ☃️ ❄️ Windows 10 Tutorial.
