The notion of medical services and their availability for workers employed in the construction business, as well as first aid regulations applying to the industry may still be a secret to some – even though the subject continues to be an important one in view of the statistical number of annual construction workers’ accidents, which continually remains on the rise.

According to national laws concerning the medical service for employees, the employer is obliged to guarantee the availability of medical personnel for any necessary consultation on issues connected with work and professional duties. In case of sudden severe injuries sustained at the construction site, initial medical attention and help shall be granted at the scene. In case no institution providing professional medical help is accessible in close proximity, it is necessary for the employer to ensure that a person with a certification confirming their undergone training or trainings in first-aid treatment is available at the scene. On top of that, the company should provide either transportation necessary for transferring the injured to hospital, or a communication system which will allow for making emergency calls and requests for an ambulance to be provided. In places where the national emergency number 911 is not available, telephone numbers of local medical and other services should be collected and posted in a place visible for everyone concerned. Additionally, in workplaces where exposure to dangerous chemicals or materials may pose a potential threat to workers’ health, it is compulsory to ensure all equipment and appliances designed for emergency use are always at hand.


Employers are also obliged to guarantee the availability of first-aid kits for immediate use in case an injury following an accident during work at the construction site occurs. Their content should be well-stocked, too. Always in the amount suitable for the number of workers and the size of a construction site, first aid kits should consist of individually packed medical items appropriate for all most common injuries and injuries typical for the specific kind of construction work being performed at the given time. All items have to be put in a weatherproof container and be re-checked weekly in order to replace expanded medication. They have to also be verified before being sent out, to make sure they are complete and ready for use. If the employer has knowledge or predictions of their employees being at risk of future exposure to blood or other bodily fluids and dangerous substances while using first aid kits, they should provide necessary personal protection supplies, such as eg. gloves, masks and glass eye shields.

The Top 5 Reasons to Remove a Tattoo Sat, 08 Feb 2014 12:15:38 +0000

Tattoos have been popular for hundreds of years. The tattoo is a rite of passage, something you do to prove your rebelliousness or declare your love for something or someone. Getting a tattoo can make you look free-spirited, individual, and adventurous. People get tattoos to step outside of the system or prove a point – a tattoo can be a genuine expression of individuality and self. However, as the popularity of tattoos has grown so too has the market for tattoo removal. For every cherished tattoo there is a design someone wishes they’d never had inked. Here are five reasons why that tattoo may not be such a good idea in the future.

Lost Love
Probably the most common reason for tattoo removal is to remove the remnants of a love affair gone wrong. Getting a tattoo of a lover’s name may be a sweet and impulsive gesture but this romantic action may backfire a few years or months down the line when that lover is no longer in the picture. Love is a marvellous thing but think twice about declaring your love in tattoo form. Even if you believe this love will last forever, you probably don’t need a tattoo to prove it. A break up is hard enough without having to deal with a permanent reminder of your ex staring at you every time you have a shower or look in the mirror. And it’s not easy to start a new relationship with an ex’s name tattooed on your arm. You can change the name on the tattoo but this is a little cheap, and unlikely to impress a new partner.

Corporate Conformity
While it may be a great idea to stick it to the man with a tattoo when you’re young and carefree, the same may not be true when you’re trying to get a job in a conservative industry. While it is important to be able to express your personality and individual style it is almost impossible to be taken seriously for a banking or legal role with a winged falcon tattooed across your neck. Discrete tattoos may be acceptable but large and noticeable body art will put you at a disadvantage when job hunting.The Top 5 Reasons to Remove a TattooChanged Your Mind
You probably don’t like the same music or the same hobbies now as you did in your teens. If you got your tattoo when you were young you were probably in love with a certain band but their tattoo now looks strange on the body of a forty-something father. If you changed your religion or your beliefs your tattoo may no longer fit.

Not So Cool Anymore
Design dates, and something that looked great in the 80s may not look so fresh now. Looking cool in your twenties is different from looking cool in your forties – you want your bodily decoration to reflect this.

Botched Job
Unfortunately not all tattoos come out exactly as you’d hoped. Sometimes the tattoo artist even spells the name wrong. An unsightly tattoo can be embarrassing. If someone has pointed out that “passion” actually has two ss and not one s, it may be time to visit this website to find out about safe and effective tattoo removal options.

What You Need to Know when Buying a Parka Sat, 16 Nov 2013 08:23:17 +0000

  1. Chilblains: Causes, Symptoms And Treatment
  2. Must have in your Wardrobe for Evening Wear
‘Tis the winter season once again, and are you ready for it? Whilst we grudgingly prepare to face the cold, wet, windy weather by ransacking our wardrobes and taking out those dreaded sweaters, jackets, and other winter wear, it doesn’t mean that we have an excuse to look sloppy. On the contrary – even if you are set to wear bulky winter clothing, you can still look stylish and put-together with hardly any effort. The trick is to wear something that is well-made and well-designed, and this goes for your jackets – specifically, your parka – as well.

Climate change has made the weather quite unpredictable nowadays, hasn’t it? Some places are experiencing colder weather, and it’s also time for you to be prepared with your outerwear. If you are looking for something to keep you warm outdoors, a parka will do the trick nicely.


Choosing a parka

There are plenty of parka designs and styles out there. But before choosing one, you have to know your options first. You actually have the choice between a light or heavy parka, and this may also depend on where you live. Light parkas are usually made with wool and have one single layer of insulation, while heavy parkas are often equipped with extra thick pockets that are attached to the layer of insulation to prevent warm air from escaping. If you are planning on spending a lot of time outdoors, perhaps doing a bit of skiing or other winter sports, then go for a heavy parka. If you simply want a parka to keep you warm whilst you walk a few blocks in the city or countryside, then a light parka can do the job.

Types of parkas

Aside from light or heavy parkas, you also have a choice between the different types of parkas. There are waterproof parkas which are ideal for keeping out moisture, but some are too heavy for everyday wear. However, you can also choose a lightweight parka which can also work as a raincoat so you can stay dry. For better protection from the rain, you can opt for a light parka with a hood, such as the ones featured in this interesting piece.

Another type of parka is the modular parka, which is designed to change the parka into three distinct pieces. The modular parka usually has a zip-out jacket, and it can be taken apart to form an inner jacket and an outer part. One aspect that’s useful about a modular parka is that it can be adapted according to the weather you will be facing for the day. Modular parkas typically include pockets that are zippered and velcro straps.

A third type of parka is the military parka, otherwise known as a fishtail parka. This type of parka normally features a hood which is lined with fleece or fur, and is a bit longer (ending at the thigh) than other types of parkas.

But one thing you should keep in mind when you’re in the market for a parka is that it’s better to get a good quality one which you can use for years. Stay warm and dry, and, more importantly, stay stylish as well!

Prevent Tooth Decay by Reducing Acidic Food Mon, 28 Oct 2013 11:43:27 +0000

If you want to prevent your teeth from acid wear, you will need to change your habits, which includes changing your eating habits too. Of course you will need to maintain good oral hygiene but if you already have teeth worn out by acid, there are many things on your platter you will need to cut down. Unfortunately, dentists have started observing increased number of teeth affected by acid wearing. Once your teeth is acid worn, it not only becomes temperature sensitive it also becomes more prone to decay. Here are some ways to prevent your teeth from erosions caused by acids.

Prevent Tooth Decay

The causes

  • Regular and excessive consumption of acid rich beverages such as wine, juices, and other acidic drinks;
  • Eating a lot of vegetables and fruits rich in acid;
  • Irregular eating habits and consumption of less amount of alkaline based food which is effective in neutralizing acids, such as cucumber;
    Eating a lot of snacks and food rich in fatty acids.

The solutions

You don’t necessarily need a dentistry guide to take care of your teeth. Few simple measures will go a long way in teeth protection. Here are some of them.

No more beverages: The carbonated beverages, sodas, wines, soft drinks and preserved fruit juices have excessive amount of acids. Many of these beverages are not only unhealthy for your teeth but are also not good for your overall health. So reducing their intake or cutting them down altogether will have help make your teeth stronger and at the same time make you healthier overall.

Avoid frequent eating: You may enjoy eating frequently all day but it is also putting your teeth at the risk of acid erosion. So you have the following two choices. You can either cut down on the eating, which may also positively affect your bodily health or you can continue with your eating pattern but ensure that you include food items high on alkaline content to ensure that the acidic effect of the food is counteracted. Some of the alkaline food items are cucumber, spinach, nuts, and dairy products.

Brush after a gap: Brushing your teeth after every meal is a good habit. But make sure you leave a gap of 45 minutes to an hour before brushing after the meal. Acidic food softens the enamel and it is more prone to bristle-damage. Therefore let the effects of the acid reduce before you brush your teeth. Also make sure you don’t brush your teeth too hard.

Prevention is better than cure. If you take care of your oral hygiene from the beginning you may not even ever need to cut down on your eating habits, unless you have to for reasons other than dental.

  1. Be Festive With The Right Party Makeup
Well when it comes to Evening wear, be it a party or a date or just a movie with your friends, its always difficult to choose the right dress for the right occasion and more often than not you are not satisfied with the dresses in your wardrobe. So here is a list of some of the must haves in your wardrobe for evening wear.

Little Black Dress (LBD)

Little Black dress is a must have in your wardrobe. It is smart, sexy and eye catching and works for possibly every evening occasion. Pair it up with a nice pair of heels and some accessories and you are set to get a lot of compliments. However be careful in choosing the right fabric and the right fitting that suits you.

Evening Wear


No matter what the trend is this is one thing that you must have. A pair of Blue denims is one style that can go well with almost anything. Wear it with a white shirt or a top and you can never go wrong. Never shy away from investing in a good pair of denims.

Black Trousers

A pair of flat black trousers is again something that helps you dress up for almost every occasion. You can wear it with a nice pair of top or and accessorize it with some jewelry and you definitely can make a statement but be careful not to go for pleats as it accentuates unnecessary parts your body and make you look fat.


A stylish scarf can change your dress completely and give it a new definition. So indulge in them and have a lot of these which you can mix and match with your regular dresses also. The amazing part about scarf is that it gives variety to your wardrobe without spending a lot of money.

Buy your evening dress at DressFirst Today and you can also get a discount here. However before you start filling your wardrobe there are some basic thumb rules that you should follow. Firstly, it’s very important to know your body type and your complexion. You definitely don’t want to look odd in the party. Also try and avoid light colors for evening wear. Dark color makes you look slimmer than you are and hides away the curves you don’t want to show while light colors accentuate them. In the end the most important part is how you can carry it off. Be it a knee length skirt, cocktail dress or a simple pair of denims, wear something that you can carry off well and are comfortable in.

Smoking: Hard To Let Go, Easy To Let In Tue, 27 Aug 2013 11:42:28 +0000

So you have finally understood why you should have quit smoking long time back and you finally believe in the claims that smoking is indeed injurious to health?  After quitting smoking have you been craving for one and are you finding it difficult to live without?

It is true that smoking causes serious health issues but the addictive nature does make it very difficult to quit.  You may have fruitlessly tried to quit smoking multiple times but finally found yourself puffing.  Once you decide to quit, the mind always nudges you to pick the ‘last one’ and there is never a last one.

The craving for smoke is hard to bear for the long time smokers once they quit.  They are always looking for an alternative so that they can kill the craving but don’t have to smoke in the poison that is the part of cigarette smoking.  If you have really made up your mind and you want something else in place of cigarettes then you can consider buying a vaporizer.

Portable vaporizer is Capable of Replacing Cigarettes


You can pick up a portable vaporizer as it can be easily carried wherever you are going.  Just like your packet of cigarettes you can put the portable vaporizer in your pocket and use it whenever you want to, home or away.

One of the vaporizers that you would like to have a look at is Persei Vaporizer by Delta 9 Vaporizers.

Persei – The Essential oil Vaporizer

Persei portable vaporizer is an evolved version of oil vaporizers.  It does not require any organic herbs.  It simply works on the essential oil.

Why do you think a vaporizer is a better option for you?  For a simple reason that your vaporizer doesn’t cause health hazards.  It does not burn the oil or any other content it uses and does not generate smoke.  Smoke carries with itself a lot of toxins that are clearly harmful to human beings.

Persei is small and weighs less.  You can carry it wherever you want to and use it whenever you want to.

Persei is also the only vaporizer available in the market that uses variable voltage essential oil.  Persei does not use any other organic herb or content. It only uses essential oils.

The best (and worst) of natural makeup products Thu, 01 Dec 2011 03:43:18 +0000

Living during the Green Era, we find that natural products are being manufactured for anything and everything, and makeup is no exception. For instance, plant oils, shea and cocoa butters are excellent skin moisturizers. Aloe and chamomile essences are incredibly soothing and create softer textures. Minerals are also great makeup products for irritable skins. Natural cosmetics do not carry additives, such as preservatives, originally designed to preserve the quality of a product longer, but which can have damaging effects to a person´s health. They also tend to be more transparent and reliable, since buyers know exactly what they are purchasing when looking at the composition. Non-synthetic makeup products are easier and less damaging for the skin to absorb, specially considering it might absorb up to 60% of ingredients in certain body products. Organic products are better, since they cannot use synthetic fertilizers or poisonous pesticides. Natural makeup products carry barely noticeable preservatives, which carry more long-term benefits in terms of health and, consequently, beauty.

Despite the wonders of natural products that we are encouraged to buy, it is important to take into account that this isn´t always the way to go, as natural might actually mean allergic. If you are allergic to plant and flower extracts, or if you have acne and an extremely sensitive skin, it is best not to use these products, as they might aggravate your condition and create rashes and other negative reactions. Sometimes, these extracts contain enzymes that act as catalysts to allergic reactions. In these cases, it is better to use natural oils, rather than extracts, such castor-seed or sunflower oils. Also, look out for the components of mineral makeup products. Unless they are pure, it is better to avoid them, since they might contain parabens and other toxic substances. Natural antioxidant claims in makeup products should be viewed with particular care and suspicion, since they aren´t always used in the best or most efficient way. Natural nutrients may cause inflammation or redness in the skin, depending on the type of skin. The most important thing when using natural products is to know your skin, since not all natural makeup products are suitable for all kinds of skin. For instance, the mask of beaten egg whites can tighten pores in oily skins, but redden dry ones. Furthermore, natural products are not so natural anymore, since they all imply some sort of processing and are no longer completely pure or fresh.

For best makeup effects, the most important thing when faced with the decision of choosing non-synthetic products over chemical makeup ones is the type of skin you have. Whatever your decision, these products should never come into direct contact with your eyes or lips.

  3. Makeup Care And Skin Care
Men have been shaving ever since the Stone Age, and since the time that razors were first invented the quality of these sharp hair removal devices has dramatically increased. Gillette is one of the world’s better-known companies to create an assortment of high-quality shaving devices, products, and accessories.

The Purpose

One effort of Gillette is to help launch skin care products that help reduce dryness as well as pain and discomfort often associated with shaving. The reduction of redness and irritation that often is experienced when shaving can also be decreased when using Gillette shavers and/or other products made by this company.

The typical Gillette formula used in the shaving creams they produce is not only capable of removing dirt, but also it helps remove excess oil. At the same time, it helps reduce or prevent dry skin.

In fact, in some cases a man’s facial skin is even more sensitive than that of a woman’s. The soap-free formula is intended for the purpose of eliminating pollution and impurities while it refreshes facial skin. At the same time the firmness of the skin is held sacred and the pores are opened up after shaving and allergies are reduced.

Further Description

Gillette has over the years offered a wide range of shaving products as well as skin care solutions. One more reason for launching skin care products is that the skin can become dry and painful as a result of razor stubble.

The natural ingredients used in Gillette products provide a glossy skin surface for nicks and cuts. This is made available for your personal free shaving pleasure.

The Gillette Moisturizer

The moisturizers in Gillette products are of a SPF factor of 15 and these products can not only be used to prevent grease build-up but also they help give added protection to a man’s skin. Any traces of impurities and pollutants that are found in the skin can also be conditioned with the right kind of shaving product that also moistens the skin at the same time.


As far as using Gillette products are concerned, there is one practical suggestion. It is highly advised that you use cleanser before you decide to shave your beard so that you can open up the pores if your skin in order for them to be cleansed.

Furthermore, the presence of vitamins in Gillette products is one way to accomplished two feats at once. Your skin is not only shaven but at the same time can also be rejuvenated.
