What You Need to Know About Evac Chairs

Written by Economic Development Jobs on December 31, 2018. Posted in Handicap ems chairs, Handicap escape chairs, Handicap stair chair

Having evacuation plans in place when emergencies occur is a practice encouraged by the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA). The NFPA Life Safety Code actually has a requirement that certain kinds of facilities, such as healthcare centers, businesses, and educational facilities, make their evacuation plans public and that they plan drills on a regular basis. The problem is that the needs of disabled people are not always taken into consideration when making these plans. Given that more than 15% of the population on the planet has some kind of disability, it is important to keep these individuals safe. Having evacuation wheelchairs also called evac chairs or EMS chairs can go a long way to making sure people who need help getting to safety can be evacuated along with everyone else.

For Jennifer Feltenstein and another New Rochelle High school student, this is not so much of a theoretical question but is one

Taking A Closer Look At How To Become A Hazmat Professional Here In the United States

Written by Economic Development Jobs on December 31, 2018. Posted in Army hazmat training, Hm 181, Iata training

Hazardous wastes and other such hazardous materials are incredibly common here in the United States. After all, up to three billion tons of them – if not even more than that – are moved over the course of just one year in this one country alone. Much like all cargo (11 billion tons transported from one part of the country to the next in that same span of time), hazardous waste and other hazardous materials can be shipped and transported in a number of different ways, from trains to planes to even trucks. And it is trucks, at the end of the day, that make up the majority of how hazardous materials are moved, accounting for very nearly 95% of all hazmat shipments here in the United States.

And with so much cargo, particularly hazardous wastes and other hazardous materials, being transported from one end of the country to the next, it is hugely important to have highly trained and qualified professionals actually doing the work to move this cargo from place to place. If such professi

Using Specialty and Calibration Gases

Written by Economic Development Jobs on December 29, 2018. Posted in Gc calibration gas, Natural gas, Specialty gas handling equipment

For many uses in companies that manufacture electronics or other products, using very pure gases such as specialty gas is very important for getting the job done, and a gas whose purity is too low cannot be used. For this reason, there is an entire industry based around creating and transporting pure and concentrated gases, and auxiliary items like a high purity gas regulator can be useful to making sure that gases are used in the proper amounts and pressures during the job. What is more, gases may become impure over time, and when this happens, a company should use calibration gases to set everything straight and diagnose a problem. Equipment for gas work will also include the canisters in which gas is transported, such as a calibration gas cylinder and more. A high purity gas regulator, meanwhile, should be sent in for repairs or replaced if it cannot accurately handle the pure gases that it must control.

The Benefits of Using Powder Coating

Written by Economic Development Jobs on December 27, 2018. Posted in Why get a powder coating

When it comes to the industrial market, a professional finish on every product is important. A great coating can be the difference between snagging a customer and that customer moving on to another company. Liquid coating is an acceptable option with many of its own benefits, but powder coating is the real MVP of the industrial world. It offers environmental, performance, and aesthetic benefits that will make any product shine as well as withstand years of wear and tear.

What Are Powder Coatings?

The incredibly enhanced powder coating is a coating that goes on as a dry and free-flowing powder. Once it is applied it is heated to help form a protective layer. It is usually made from thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer and creates a hard, durable finish that will last.

Better for the Environment

These days having an environmentally friendly company and product is a big deal. People want to purchase from companies that care about the consequences their actio

Using the Right Protection for Ceramics

Written by Economic Development Jobs on December 26, 2018. Posted in High temperature ceramic coating, Itc 100 ceramic coating, Surface bonding cement

Ceramics is a term to describe materials made from non-organic compounds and ingredients such as metals and non metals, and they are often valued for their heat-resistant nature, making them ideal for baking in a kiln or using in other items that produce extreme heat, as they will not easily melt or get discolored due to flames and intense heat inside. Ceramic materials, then, are often used by and made inside furnaces, kilns, and other very hot items, but sometimes, ceramics may need extra protection to increase their longevity and their resistance to heat. Some brands such as ITC 100 can help with this, and ITC 100 application onto ceramic surfaces can result in ceramic insulation that is more effective and long-lasting than ever before. The best ceramic coating may be found when a customer, whether a private owner or a business professional, contacts experts and asks them for guidance on application of ITC 100, or to hire crews to apply ceramic coating kits into ceramic surfaces for

Natural Gas Across the United States and the Ability to Dispose Cylinders

Written by Economic Development Jobs on December 26, 2018. Posted in Calibration gas suppliers, Custom calibration gas standards

With the amount of natural gas used in our nation, both for businesses and homes, there is much to gain from the potential to properly dispose of the containers where these gases are held. Because all gases, even natural, can be a pollutant to the earth, then it is important to make sure that they are often held in disposable cylinders. This is valuable because disposable cylinders can be used one time and then safely recycled or reused without damage to the environment.

How Much Natural Gas do We Use?

At this point, about 25% of all primary energy resources in the United States come from natural gas. While this is much cleaner than coal or other fossil fuels, this is a very good thing. Of all these buildings that are powered by natural gas, almost 67 million homes are included as well as almost five and a half million businesses across the United States. Therefore, it is quite clear that natural gas is valuable to our economy and our environment as well.
