6 Tips for Making Your Construction Site Safer

Working as a construction worker is almost similar to being a superhero. Each day you are entrusted with the responsibility of bearing heavy loads and using expensive equipment. Squatting on scaffolds and riding in cranes puts you so high up in the sky that you have the feeling you are flying. What makes your job extraordinary and enjoyable can also put a lot of stress on you. If you don’t take care, you can incur injuries while working. Here are some safety tips to follow to avoid common injury and stress on the construction site.

1. Lift objects properly

As a construction worker, backaches are your primary enemy. It is easy to get injuries while carrying heavy loads, but you can avoid this hazard altogether. Always bend your knees so that you don’t twist to the side while lifting. For a better balance, put one foot in front of the other.

2. Use ergonomic portable and high-powered tools

Tools are meant to make your work simpler. You may not realize it, but frequent use of poorly designed tools can make you develop conditions such as trigger finger, white finger, carpal tunnel syndrome, and tendonitis. Even powered tools can make you develop serious problems due to their excessive noise and high vibration. Thus, as an employer or supervisor, ensure the tools you select for your workers have a long trigger and low vibration levels. For the hand tools, safety coordinators or employers must select those that require less force and don’t put a strain on the hand when held tight. The hand tools must also be balanced, and not conduct electricity or heat.

Hairpieces for Hair Loss

Hair loss can be devastating. Whether you lose some or all of your hair, it can be hard to deal with the realities of a changed appearance. Adding in hairpieces and wearing wigs can boost your confidence and give you back the tresses you have always loved. There are hairpieces for all hair loss situations and finding one is a simple process.

Thinning Hair

If you have thinning hair, adding in hairpieces can give you fullness and body. These hairpieces come in a variety of textures, styles and colors. You can find curly hairpieces to add fullness at the crown of your head or long flowing locks to add length. Add in darker pieces to make your hair look even fuller. When it comes to thinning hair, extensions can do wonders for your look.

Good One for Hubby

Hubby went last month to the doctor because he was complaining for the pain on his knee. The doctor wrote a prescription and I went immediately to the drug store. I was shock because the 20 tablet pack cost around 45.00 Euros. It is very expensive. I thought the health insurance will pay for it but they won't due to some reasons. I ask the pharmacist if the medicine has some side effects. She explains it to me and I decided not to buy it because of a lot of side effects and second it is very expensive. I also ask her what can be the alternative for my husband to take to get rid of his pain on the knee. The pharmacist said that hubby can take vitamins especially magnesium. He can also take multi-vitamins when he want. To make the story short, we ended up buying a bottle of magnesium vitamin for hubby to take. He said that he is feeling very better now with his knee compared to last month. I guess it is time for me to take vitamins also. How about you?

Sis Got A Problem

This is quite personal but I just want to share it to you because I think it might help. This happened to my sister in the Philippines last December 2009. She was having a constipation that time. For some consequences, it resulted to hemorrhoid. She was very afraid as it happened and immediately consulted the doctor. If you have the same problem right now, you better click here to learn more about it and its treatment. Be sure to also consult the doctor like what my sister did. She was given an immediate prescription for medicine and used a special cream to cure it. Before I go back here in Europe, she told that everything is fine now. We have to take care of our body to avoid sickness and diseases.

Are You Wasting Money on Multivitamins?

This only serves as General Information. ...Continue to read if you want to know more. Who knows this might cause you to save some money and avoiding the side effects of taking vitamins...Have a great day to all!!

Subject: Multivitamins....a waste??? Important , pls. read...
Message: Are You Wasting Money on Multivitamins?

Advertisements with tantalizing promises of improved health, prevention of cancer and heart disease, and greater energy have lured millions of Americans to spend billions of dollars on the purchase of multivitamins.

An article in the February 9 issue of Archives of Internal Medicine reported that multivitamin use did not protect the 161,808 postmenopausal women enrolled in the Women's Health Initiative Study from common forms of cancer, heart attacks, or strokes. And the numbers of deaths during the 8 years of the study were the same in vitamin users as in non-users. Still, it is important to recognize that this was an observational study, not a more meaningful clinical trial. Although these findings apply only to women, other studies have failed to show benefits of multivitamins in older men.

These results are not at all surprising for several reasons. No large study has shown that multivitamins significantly benefit healthy men and women. In addition, for some years physicians prescribed folic acid and vitamins B12 and B6 in the hopes of preventing heart attacks and strokes by lowering blood levels of homocysteine. (High blood levels of homocysteine are associated with an increased risk of coronary and other vascular diseases.) A number of recent studies, however, have shown that, while these vitamins do lower homocysteine levels, they do not prevent heart attacks or strokes.

Many doctors have also prescribed the antioxidants vitamin E and beta-carotene to reduce the risk of cardiovascular diseases and cancer. Alas, studies have now proven that these supplements are not protective--and may even be harmful.

No one denies that an adequate intake of vitamins is essential; however, vitamins can and should be obtained from eating enough healthy foods rather than from swallowing vitamin supplements.
Then what about vitamins being a great source of energy? Some multivitamin ads do indeed claim that their supplements boost energy; and some professional athletes gobble handfuls of vitamin pills to increase their energy and strength. But researchers proved long ago that energy comes from calories, not vitamins. The highly touted cholesterol-lowering effects of substances added to some multivitamin supplements? Still unproven.

All this is not to say that specific vitamins supplements are never desirable. Vitamins can be valuable in certain situations:

* Folic acid supplements in women who are pregnant or plan to become pregnant can help to prevent serious neural-tube defects that affect the baby's brain and spine.
* Supplements that contain more vitamin D and calcium than is present in regular multivitamin pills can help older men, and especially women, avoid osteoporosis and bone fractures.
* Supplements of vitamins C and E, beta-carotene, zinc, and copper may slow the progression of vision loss in people with early macular degeneration.
And multivitamins are beneficial for some entire groups of people:
* those on a very-low-calorie weight-loss diet
* strict vegetarians
* heavy alcohol drinkers
* individuals who are not getting an adequate diet because they are too sick or too poor--or live by themselves and are unable to prepare proper meals for themselves
I also agree with a comment made by one of the coauthors of the Archives of Internal Medicine article about postmenopausal women mentioned above. An 8-year follow-up period may not be long enough to show that multivitamins protect against cancers that take many years to develop.
All the same, the results of the studies on vitamins so far point to one conclusion: Healthy people who eat enough calories from a varied diet do not benefit from multivitamin supplements.

Avoid Static Cling

Are you having a static cling? I am having this all the times. I remember when I was in Las Vegas last year wherein I always got static clings. I don't know if it is because I always walked on carpeted floors in the hotels there. I even feel bad about it sometimes especially when I draw near to metals and I feel like having an electric shock!! shocking huh!! see this tip below..hope this will help!!

To fight off static cling, keep a dryer sheet in your purse and rub it on the underside of your skirt or pantyhose.

Look Beautiful During A Christmas Party

As we all know there are a lot of parties going on on or before Christmas. It might be a Christmas party with your colleagues, family, friends, groups or simply a party in your home. Last night I should attend a Filipino Party in Neumarkt but due to some sort of migraine attack, I chose to stay home. I don't want to drive with migraine anyway. This topic now is especially for women...sorry guys! Do you always look beautiful when you go to a party? Are you using Natural Skin Care products when applying make-ups?

After I talked to a friend yesterday, she told me not to stay too much in front of the mirror doing my make-up. I told her I will try but I just want to always look at least presentable when going to a party. I thought my migraine will be gone in the afternoon so that I can attend the party. Pity for me! I always wanted to use Natural Skin Care Products to always keep my face and skin healthy, natural and of course the picture in my header...wink! Oh yes, that was me!

I always tried to look for Organic Skin Care Products. I already know that this kind of products are really good. The problem is that I don't know the exact brand. I finally found it now. Astara Skin Care are also use by famous individuals like Liv Tyler, Daniel Craig, Karolina Kurkova, Mel Gibson and a lot more. I don't mean that I want to be like them. I just wanted to maintain my healthy and beautiful skin as possible. I have to visit again this site for more details. Lastly, I should look beautiful and presentable in the Christmas party on Thursday!! I am quite excited already!! Merry Christmas and stay always beautiful girls!!

It's Snow Time Again!!

Yes, it is snow time again! I had been cooking a lot the past days. Just last Thursday I cooked 4 menus. I cooked a yummy Snitzel which is like a breaded lean pork meat, fried fish, broiled pork and fish paksiw a Filipino food. I know I am gaining some weight again this winter. This is especially true because I have always good appetite when it is a cold. Sometimes I think there is no way for me to lose some kilos anymore.

Women Love Shopping

Do you agree with me that most women love shopping?? I did not say all but most!! Shopping can be a sickness but if you have the cash/money to buy, I guess it is okey. The problem is that when you don't have the cash and tend to pay it in credit..Not a good idea!! I bought last time a magnetic bracelet. I read an article last year that magnetic bracelets are helpful especially to some sickness like muscle pain, headaches, back pain, tendonitis and a lot more. As I saw some magnetic bracelet that are on sale I bought a lot and send it to my family in the Philippines. Why not give it a try!! Magnet Jewelry Store is the best place to look for it!!

Take care everyone!! Stay healthy and happy all the time!!

My Life and How To Lose Weight!!

Since two years ago, my computer has been my bestfriend. Do you know why?? because I spend most of the time in front of my PC. That is getting worst now since I start blogging. I think I can't live without my computer anymore..Sounds funny huh??But yes, it's true that I stay in front of my pc most of the time. Well, it doesn't mean that I don't have friends. I have some good friends here in Germany, to count maybe are 2 or 3 persons. Unlike in the Philippines, I got hundreds of friends. Sometimes, I can only contact my friends and former classmates online like in Friendster. Life here in Europe is just different compared to Philippines. You even don't know your neighbors here. Honestly speaking, I only knew not even a dozen names of my neighbors here in Germany . Imagine I already live here for more than five years now and I only know maybe around 10 names of my neighbors.

That is why, I am talking and writing all the time in my computer. I am just thankful that we have this technology now or else my life can be very boring. Thanks to the power of internet where we can stay connected with our family, former classmates, and friends anywhere around the world.

And you know what is the effect of too much sitting down in front of my pc??? It is quite shameful being a woman but I have to share it with you. Honestly speaking, compared to last year I am gaining more weight now and my tummy is getting bigger. Very bad effect???What do you think??I even have some exercise equipment inside our room but it is still of no use. Well because I am always stuck in front of my pc, browsing, surfing, writing and updating my blogs all the time.

Sometimes, I am even thinking of taking diet pills just like someone I knew in U.S. as I visited there last time. As I was in U.S., I was amazed by this person because he have lots of Diet Pills Supplements in his office. He said he used them before and it was proven to be effective. Sometimes I am thinking why not give it a try??

I just came across Price Exposed. A website that provides relevant information on choosing diet supplements. According to them, when you choose a certain diet supplement, you should consider the cost, safety and its effectiveness. I believed it is true?? How can you choose a certain product if its not safe for you???What do you think dear readers???Any idea or opinion?? That is the reason why Price Exposed provides the list of the Top 10 and even the Best Diet Pills that a person can take. This site simply reviews the best diet pills without confusing the shoppers. They even provide the benefit of a certain diet pills. If you want to look great and beautiful, Visit their site now and learn more infos!!! have a great weekend ahead!!!
