Welcome to our site.  We are dedicated towards helping you stay safe from injures and to serve as a starting place for good safe practices. If your like me you want to keep your family safe. Our website contains a collection of resources that may help you become safer by raising your awareness of hazards, incidents, and accidents. Here you will find a safety word search game, a walking and biking page, links to various companys that provide safety related services like ADT Home Security, Multipure water filtration and so much more.

Why think about safety?
Life can hurt!  We cannot prevent every accident from occurring in our life.  Catching unsafe conditions and having them fixed lower our risk of getting hurt. Employers benefit by reducing their cost of lost time and recordable injuries. The challenge is to get people everywhere to start making safe choices.  No one ever wants to get injured,  yet the hospital emergency rooms seem to
be always full of patients waiting for treatment. Our goal is to help everyone remember to be safe at work, home and at play.
What can you do? Get involved!
Ask yourself over and over. Is this task safe for me to do?  If your answer is no, STOP!  Do not perform the task it until you make sure it is safe. If you are not sure about an unsafe condition or task.  Ask someone who knows how to make the condition safe.  Get the safety training neccessary for the job and equipment you are responsible for running. You may need machine guarding training, confined space training, lockout Tagout training, fall protection training, electrical safe practices training and /or stored energy training,  It may be to late when you are in the hospital to say I should have learned how to work safely.

You may also need to wear personal protective equipment like ear plugs, safety glasses, steel toed shoes, work gloves or even a hard hat.. The types of personnel protective equipment and training depend on the job and task being performed.  Always use the right tools for the job. If you don't have the right tools. Go get them! The time it takes to get the right tool is a lot less than a visit to  the emergency room. Don't forget the lost wages you could be earning while waiting to recover.
We cannot control everything that happens to us (sometimes it is the other person) however, we can control our actions. Remember, the person most responsible for your safety is YOU. The person you look at every morning in the mirror.

Tips for a Good Night's Sleep:

Adapted from "When You Can't Sleep: The ABCs of ZZZs," by the National Sleep Foundation.

  • Set a schedule:

Go to bed at a set time each night and get up at the same time each morning. Disrupting this schedule may lead to insomnia. "Sleeping in" on weekends also makes it harder to wake up early on Monday morning because it re-sets your sleep cycles for a later awakening.

  • Exercise:

Try to exercise 20 to 30 minutes a day. Daily exercise often helps people sleep, although a workout soon before bedtime may interfere with sleep. For maximum benefit, try to get your exercise about 5 to 6 hours before going to bed.

  • Avoid caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol:

Avoid drinks that contain caffeine, which acts as a stimulant and keeps people awake. Sources of caffeine include coffee, chocolate, soft drinks, non-herbal teas, diet drugs, and some pain relievers. Smokers tend to sleep very lightly and often wake up in the early morning due to nicotine withdrawal. Alcohol robs people of deep sleep and REM sleep and keeps them in the lighter stages of sleep.

  • Relax before bed:

A warm bath, reading, or another relaxing routine can make it easier to fall sleep. You can train yourself to associate certain restful activities with sleep and make them part of your bedtime ritual.

  • Sleep until sunlight:

If possible, wake up with the sun, or use very bright lights in the morning. Sunlight helps the body's internal biological clock reset itself each day. Sleep experts recommend exposure to an hour of morning sunlight for people having problems falling asleep.

  • Don't lie in bed awake:

If you can't get to sleep, don't just lie in bed. Do something else, like reading, watching television, or listening to music, until you feel tired. The anxiety of being unable to fall asleep can actually contribute to insomnia.

  • Control your room temperature:

Maintain a comfortable temperature in the bedroom. Extreme temperatures may disrupt sleep or prevent you from falling asleep.

  • See a doctor if your sleeping problem continues:

If you have trouble falling asleep night after night, or if you always feel tired the next day, then you may have a sleep disorder and should see a physician. Your primary care physician may be able to help you; if not, you can probably find a sleep specialist at a major hospital near you. Most sleep disorders can be treated effectively, so you can finally get that good night's sleep you need.
