    The After Party You Don’t Want to Attend

    Tweet It’s summer, and for teens, that means concerts. (It’s also true for those in their twenties, thirties, forties, fifties…oh, heck, with Boomer musicians still performing in their seventies, it means everyone!) Be sure to bring earbuds. It’ll still be plenty loud. If you’re fortunate enough to have an “in” with the performers, by winning [...]

    Hospitals: Keeping You Safe Behind the Scenes

    Tweet There are some businesses that everyone appreciates, but nobody wants to use. Yet they stay in business because people require their services regularly — even if it’s not by choice. Tow trucks, for instance. You may be frustrated as all get out when your car breaks down en route to that important client meeting. [...]

    Sock It To Me

    Tweet Back in the ’60s, socks were quite popular. There were Friday night sock hops, where hip teenagers would kick off their shoes and dance in the gym in their socks. Then there was the catchphrase, “Sock It To Me,” which became a counterculture classic after Aretha Franklin added the refrain to her hit song Respect in [...]

    An Education in School Preservation

    Tweet School’s out for summer, and children won’t give the classroom another thought until they’re back inside the hallowed halls of learning.

    Don’t Hit the Roof!

    Tweet It’s not the 1950s, but grease is as common now as it was then. The difference is, back then grease gussied up a guy’s hair so he looked (and was) slick for a night on the town. Today, hair is more natural. But grease still lurks all around town, on restaurant roofs. And that’s [...]

    Blood-borne Pathogens: How to Stay Safe

    Tweet The world can be a dangerous place: 24-ounce cups of extremely complicated coffee orders can make someone so manic they forget how to text! Just kidding. Being over-caffeinated isn’t a calamity. Oversleeping so that you’re almost late to a meeting and don’t have time for a coffee stop — that’s major. But if your colleague accidentally [...]

    That’s A HazWOPER! Spill Acronyms Are No Joke

    Tweet When was the last time you gave some TCLP to your spill clean up products? Did you think we meant TLC, and that was a typo? Nope. TCLP is one of many tests and certifications XSORB has successfully passed to make our flagship product the industry standard for safe, effective spill containment and disposal, [...]

    What Was That Masked Spill?

    Tweet Grocery stores aren’t usually associated with biological or chemical hazards. Unless Junior suddenly spews his lunch all over the floor, in which case Biofresh Super Absorbentwill clean up the biohazard in record time. But, says the Institute of Hazardous Materials Management (IHMM), the definition of a hazardous materialis broader than many suppose, encompassing “any item or [...]

    Slip and Fall: Not Funny When It Hurts

    Tweet Comedians have been using pratfalls on banana peels and other slip and fall gags since time immemorial. Cave dwellers probably placed animal sinew on the ground to trip up neighbors intent on stealing their leftover mastodon. But slip and fall isn’t always fun and games — especially in the modern world. What may be [...]

    Spill Hero: No Cape Necessary

    Tweet Heroes and superheroes are staples of pop music, television, movies…the list goes on and on. Enrique Iglesias had a hit with a tune called Hero. The Script sang Superheroes. A current pop song, Something Just Like This, even calls on a host of superheroes by name, from Hercules to Batman, Superman to Spiderman (where are all [...]
