Revenge of The Prissy Paranoids

IF you're over 30, you can just about remember a world that occasionally acted for reasons other than safety. For better or worse, it was a world where you could smoke on a city bus, trim your fingernails on an airplane, and drink Coke out of a glass bottle-perhaps all in the same wacky day. We're all aware of the general trend, transforming that world into one of rounded corners and soft landings. But it's rare to witness the birth of a particular, irrational safety panic. Which is what makes Michael Farber's Sept. 20 column in Sports Illustrated so special.

In the Colombian mountains, I marvel at the graceful nerve of mankind

Zip-wiring is an activity no doubt available outside Colombia, but surely nowhere else is it so high or fast or far. A strong steel cable is strung from a tree on one hilltop to another tree on a slightly lower hilltop; a small cradle hangs beneath the wire, able to run freely along it on a pulley-wheel, as with a ski lift.

To zip-wire you start from the higher end.

Wearing over your trousers a harness of the sort which will be familiar to those who abseil or subscribe to bondage magazines, you then suspend yourself beneath the cable. You drop your weight on to it, steadying yourself in an upright seated position by gripping the cradle with your left hand. Your right hand, gloved with a leather pad to prevent burning, is held above your head, resting loosely on the cable above so that it runs beneath the palm.

Then you push off from the tree trunk.

Gravity takes you down, at increasing speed, until the wind whistles in your ears, the wire sings, the sun is on your back, and the valley between the hilltops has dropped away hundreds of feet beneath your boots. You can reach a tremendous speed, but as the tree trunk at the end of your journey looms you must brake, by pulling your gloved right hand down on the cable until friction slows you. Ideally you hit the cushion padding on your destination tree with a gentle thump.

Sanitation Safety Standards

safety-standards-kitchen

Properly cleaning and sanitizing foodservice operations should be a top priority for operators. Here is a look at the most common foodservices cleaning agents and sanitizers along with important guidelines you can use to help ensure that you and your staff use these chemicals safely and effectively.

Cleaning Agents

Cleaning agents are divided into four categories: detergents, solvent cleaners, abrasive cleansers and acid cleaners. Some categories may overlap. For example, some abrasive cleansers and acid cleaners contain detergents and some detergents contain solvents.

Detergents

All detergents contain surfactants (surface acting agents) that reduce surface tension between the soil and the surface. They are most often used to clean fresh soil from floors, walls, ceilings, prep surfaces and most equipment and utensils. Heavy-duty detergents, which are highly alkaline, are used to remove wax, aged or dried soils and baked-on or burned-on surfaces.

Solvent cleaners

Often called degreasers, solvent cleaners are alkaline detergents that contain grease-dissolving agents. They work in areas where grease has been burned on, such as grill back-splashes, oven doors and range hoods. Solvents are usually only effective used at full strength and so are expensive to use on large areas.

Footwear Firms Rethink Brand Positioning Given The EU’s Work Boot Safety Standards

safety-standards-wb-brands

Given the increasingly global economy, many work boot manufacturers around the world look beyond their country's borders in an effort to expand distribution. However, manufacturers on both sides of the Atlantic face difficulties and challenges in marketing their product across the Pond.

European Brands and American Work  Boots Brands 

European brands face different legislation and issues compared to their American counterparts. As a result, these firms see little competition from U.S. safety brands such Timberland, Caterpillar and Red Wing. U.S. companies have enjoyed success as fashion brands in Europe but have not fared well in the industrial arena due to the European Union's stringent safety standards. To that end, European companies have kept a strong foothold in their market.

Safety Standards of Work Boot Brands

The European Union's requirements for safety footwear indirectly limit imports from countries with lower labor costs. The C.E. mark, or official EU seal that appears on everything from light bulbs to safety boots, ensuring that the products comply with EU directives and safety standards, was devised to replace many of the different national standards throughout Europe. Safety footwear is not saleable within the EU without the stamp.
