The PRWIRE Press Releases http:// 2017-06-22T14:42:08Z Should You Tell Your Employer If You Have a Mental Health Disorder? 2017-06-22T14:42:08Z should-you-tell-your-employer-if-you-have-a-mental-health-disorder What do Buzz Aldrin, Bon Jovi, Winston Churchill, Isaac Newton, and Oprah Winfrey all have in common? The answer is that they have all suffered from mental illness. Winston Churchill even named this disorder “black dog”, indicating that it was his lifelong companion.  According to the Mental Health Foundation, 1 in 6 New Zealand adults have been diagnosed with a common mental disorder at some time in their lives and it is the third-leading cause of health problems for New Zealanders. That means, one in 6 employees are likely to be suffering from a mental illness. The big question is?  Should you have to tell your employer if you have a mental health disorder? And, does your employer have the right to ask?    The Health and Safety in Employment Act promotes the health and safety of everyone at work. Employers are required to have systems in place to monitor workplace health and safety and, in terms of mental illness, employers are compelled to: ·       identify workplace practices, actions or incidents which may cause or contribute to the mental illness. ·       Identify issues that may affect the health and safety of workers. ·       take actions to eliminate or minimise these risks. While employers have several legal obligations in relation to privacy, they do have the right to ask certain questions about an employee or potential employee’s mental health status, if obtaining more information about a condition is legitimate, necessary and desirable. This additional information may be: ·       to determine whether the person can perform the inherent requirements of the job. ·       to identify if any reasonable adjustments may be needed, either in the selection and recruitment process or in the work environment. ·       to establish facts for entitlements such as sick leave, superannuation, workers’ compensation and other insurance. If you do ask your employee for information, you must maintain confidentiality and protect his or her right to privacy. This means protecting the information against improper access and disclosure. In turn, all employees (including those with mental illness) are legally obliged to: ·       take reasonable care for their own health and safety. ·       take reasonable care that their acts and/or omissions do not adversely affect the health or safety of others. ·       cooperate with any reasonable instructions to ensure workplace health and safety. The Act defines hazards and harm comprehensively, including harm caused by work-related stress and hazardous behaviour caused by certain temporary conditions, such as mental fatigue or traumatic shock. Employers who ignore the potential for non-physical harms will find themselves facing penalties for not providing a safe workplace, including imprisonment (of up to 5 years) and fines (of potentially up to $3 million). Organisations should also heed the Human Rights Act and Employment Relations Act 2000 that states that it is unlawful to discriminate against someone on the basis of disability, which includes mental illness.  Ie; It is unlawful for an employer to ask for information about a job applicant’s disability, including their mental health. The Privacy Act 1993 also outlines the collection, storage, use and disclosure of information. If an employer has reason to believe that there is a risk to worker health and safety, then they should have a policy that includes consultation with employees and that consultation should be conducted  formally and confidentially and sensitively.  The law also places an onus on the Employee that they may not endanger themselves or fellow employees. Statistics from Australia have determined that Mental Health Issues cost Australian Business 10.9 Billion Dollars a year and is one of the leading causes of sickness, absence and long term work incapacity in Australia.  However, research from a Price Waterhouse Coopers study reported that for every dollar spent on successfully implementing an appropriate action in terms of workpace mental health, there is on average, $2.3 in benefits to be gained.  Benefits include: ·       Improved Productivity. ·       Less absenteeism and presenteeism. ·       Reduction in claims and litigation risk. myosh is a global provider of cloud based Health and Safety software.  In consultation with experts and clients, myosh have developed a simple yet powerful platform that helps organisations to quickly identify issues that may impact the mental or physical health and safety of employees. The mywellbeing Platform enables organisations to manage and improve workplace mental health with simple yet powerful tools to obtain confidential feedback and acknowledgement from employees regarding: ·       Employee Mental Health ·       Bullying ·       Harassment ·       Job Satisfaction ·       Management and Culture Importantly, the platform provides a documented secure record of issues and acknowledgment.  It also provides: ·       A checklist for management. ·       Reporting tools for urgent alerts. ·       A huge library of Mental Health Resources for guidance. ·       Action based notifications and reminders The platform is an identification and documentation tool. Management are not required to ‘fix’ mental health issues but they must demonstrate due diligence. Organisations are not obliged to treat disorders but the can encourage employees to seek professional help.  The platform facilitates communication, helps to reduce stigma and alerts management to issues.

Epson Launches Revolutionary TM-T88VI Series POS Printers 2017-06-15T21:55:48Z epson-launches-revolutionary-tm-t88vi-series-pos-printers Epson Australia has significantly raised the bar in the POS industry with the introduction of its flagship TM-T88VI series, the latest addition to Epson’s growing family of intelligent POS printers. Offering a rich feature set for mobile POS and cloud services, the new TM-T88VI is ideal for merchants in high volume retail, hospitality, and financial institutions where advanced connectivity and speed of check out is critical. It maximises customers’ flexibility to deliver a high quality transaction experience. The company has also added the TM-T88VI-i printers, which extend connectivity to POS peripherals in mobile POS environments and improve storage capacity for local apps and web server support. The TM-T88VI is designed to work with both traditional PC-based POS systems and increasingly popular web and mobile setups. This makes it ideal for shop, bar and restaurant owners who want to develop new ways of interacting with customers, and also for those who just want to run a combined or traditional setup. As well as versatility, the TM-T88VI offers outstanding performance, with print speeds of up to 350 mm/s, and Epson’s proven reliability. A backward paper-feeding function helps save paper without affecting performance, reducing running costs and paper waste. Epson Australia general manager Craig Heckenberg said, “The TM-T88VI gives businesses the ability to add web and mobile POS services in stages, or run systems alone or in parallel if they choose. Many businesses, especially in the retail and restaurant sectors, are keen to leverage web and mobile POS solutions to improve efficiency and customer satisfaction, but they don’t want to commit to an entirely new system straight away. The TM-T88VI can be implemented with existing infrastructure.” Server Direct Print functionality allows the TM-T88VI to print direct from a web server. It also supports beacons, to help mobile devices identify the nearest printer, making it ideal for POS environments with multiple printer installations, while NFC support makes it easy to pair tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices. The TM-T88VI has exactly the same footprint as the TM-T88V, allowing you to upgrade to a brand new system without having to rearrange your counter space, and is available in both black and white to suit any shop, bar or restaurant decor.  TM-T88VI Key Features • Multi-interface connectivity allows for the printer to be dynamically shared between legacy PC-POS terminals, tablet and mobile devices as well as the ability to print from cloud servers • Standard triple interfaces—TM T88VI includes built-in USB & Ethernet, along with the Connect-It module port to ensure maximum flexibility and future-proofing of the customer's business • Incorporates Epson's ePOS™ Print technology to support printing from web-based applications • Designed for the cloud—it incorporates built-in functionality to leverage leading POS applications or to perform remote firmware upgrades via Epson’s OMS. It also utilizes Server Direct printing for online ordering applications and printing from cloud servers. • Beacon support provides distributed proximity-based printing with Apple devices using Bluetooth Low Energy • NFC —Near Field Communication technology for easy pairing with mobile devices in distributed printing environments • Ultra fast transaction time —achieved with print speeds of up to 350 mm/sec plus a high-speed autocutter • Advanced paper saving functions—reduces paper usage by up to 49% • Improved reliability with print head life of 200 km and extended autocutter life of 3 million cuts • The TM-T88VI-i supports all of the TM-T88VI features as well as the added support of up to 4 USB POS peripherals, improved network security and more storage capacity for web applications  The TM-T88VI is available now from www.epson.com.au and selected Epson resellers and retailers.  Arbor Networks Further Automates DDoS Attack Mitigation for MSSPs and Enterprise Customers 2017-06-15T03:44:20Z arbor-networks-further-automates-ddos-attack-mitigation-for-mssps-and-enterprise-customers Arbor Networks Inc., the security division of NETSCOUT (NASDAQ: NTCT), announced a new version of its on-premise, always-on, inline distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) detection and mitigation platform for enterprise customers, Arbor Networks APS™. Arbor APS v5.11 includes new features designed to ease the management of multiple APS devices and reduce the time to attack mitigation via improvements to its powerful and unique Cloud Signalling capability.  “Cloud Signalling has been a key innovation in enabling the industry-wide adoption of hybrid, or multi-layer DDoS defence as a best practice. Arbor understands the threat landscape and created an elegant way of linking on-premise and cloud-based mitigation. This tight connection is key to delivering protection from today's advanced DDoS attacks,” said Rob Ayoub, research director in IDC's Security Products program. As DDoS attacks continue to dramatically rise in size, frequency and complexity, automation has become increasingly critical to protecting the network against these attacks. Arbor’s Cloud Signalling capability automates key aspects of DDoS defence, tightly integrating on-premise and cloud-based mitigation. The fidelity of Arbor Cloud Signaling has been further enhanced as locally configured blacklists/whitelists on the Arbor APS are now embedded in the Cloud Signalling communication. “Automation is a top priority for most organisations today. From a security perspective, that means they’re stretched thin, using too many tools, chasing too many threats, with too little context. Arbor is really focused on being an operational asset for our customers by delivering solutions that help scale teams, enable faster time to mitigation, and automate as many processes as possible without sacrificing effectiveness,” said Tom Lyons, Arbor’s vice president of product management. The Arbor DDoS attack protection solution delivers intelligent integration between on-premises and in-cloud DDoS attack protection, backed by threat intelligence via the ATLAS Intelligence Feed (AIF). Developed by Arbor’s Security Engineering and Response Team (ASERT), the AIF includes geolocation data and automates the identification of attacks against infrastructure and services from known botnets and malware while ensuring that updates for new threats are automatically delivered without software upgrades. Easier Management of Multi-APS Environments This new management functionality benefits enterprises that manage the APS devices, as well as MSSPs that offer multi-layer or hybrid DDoS managed services to their customers. Arbor APS v5.11 includes a new console that greatly eases the management of multi-APS environments by providing centralised configuration and aggregated views of all DDoS attack activity. Each console can manage up to 50 APS devices. Automating Key and Certificate Operations with Venafi Arbor Networks has partnered with Venafi, the leader in machine identity protection, to make it easy to setup and maintain large scale SSL/TLS inspection required to stop sophisticated Layer 7 DDoS attacks hiding in encrypted traffic. Now the Arbor APS is continuously fed the most current SSL/TLS keys and certificates used across an enterprise to enable complete inspection and the ability to more quickly mitigate even the most sophisticated DDoS attacks. “Sophisticated DDoS attacks are using the cloak of encryption to go undetected,” said Kevin Bocek, VP security strategy at Venafi. “With Arbor Networks integration now available for the Venafi Platform, customers can maximise visibility into encrypted traffic and protect themselves faster from DDoS attacks quickly becoming the norm. Protection is maintained with the help of Venafi continuously automating the entire SSL/TLS key and certificate lifecycle so Arbor Networks systems have the most current set of machine identities to perform an inspection.” Supporting Resources IHS Technology Report: IHS Technology DDoS Prevention Appliances Biannual Market Tracker: Regional, H1 2017 Press Release: Arbor Networks Extends Global Leadership Position in On-Premise DDoS Protection, According to IHS Technology DDoS Threat Landscape: Arbor’s 12th annual Worldwide Infrastructure Security Report Video: Arbor’s DDoS protection portfolio works for all types of businesses, learn how.

The food industry is a vital part of the world’s economy. Food products are necessary to life, and advancements in food technology can improve nutrient density and delivery, lower cost, and provide nourishment to communities all over the world. Food is generally divided into two categories – processed or preserved, and fresh. While there are development processes for fresh food, such as the development of new fruit strains, a significant amount of new food development is in the processed and packaged space. Sometimes, this is as simple as repackaging a fresh food, such as offering green beans in a ready-to-cook format. More often, though, it’s developing a more complex processed or packaged product that meets a consumer need. New product development is an important part of any food business, from a small family business through to large corporations. Without products – and new products – to bring to market, business growth is more likely to stagnate. Most companies use a staged approach to product development. Being informed and knowledgeable about how to produce new products is just as crucial as is creating products that have market value. This course provides a foundation for developing those new products better, and minimising all types of risks along the way from product quality risks to health and business risks. This course covers the following lessons: Overview -Scope and Nature of Food Processing Industry The Role of Nutrition in New Product Development Chemical Processing, Preservatives and Additives Thermal Food Processing, Pasteurisation and Microwave Cooking Managing Health Claims and Other Statements Developing New Food Products (including Marketing) Packaging, Labelling and Storage Legal, Policy and Management Developing a New Product - Problem Based Learning (PBL) Project For more information on the Food Processing and Technology course, please visit our website: https://www.acs.edu.au/courses/food-processing-and-technology-721.aspx Australian Repair Company Strides Ahead As New Tax Year Approaches 2017-06-14T04:36:56Z australian-repair-company-strides-ahead-as-new-tax-year-approaches Australia: An Australian repair company reports that residents are using their services en masse before the tax year begins.

Offering a rich feature set for mobile POS and cloud services, the new TM-T88VI is ideal for merchants in high volume retail, hospitality, and financial institutions where advanced connectivity and speed of check out is critical. It maximises customers’ flexibility to deliver a high quality transaction experience. The company has also added the TM-T88VI-i printers, which extend connectivity to POS peripherals in mobile POS environments and improve storage capacity for local apps and web server support. The TM-T88VI is designed to work with both traditional PC-based POS systems and increasingly popular web and mobile setups.

Peristaltic Pumps Dominate Market for Precise Applications 2017-06-09T04:42:22Z peristaltic-pumps-dominate-market-for-precise-applications Perth, WA, 09 June 2017 - When it comes to high purity applications, peristaltic pumps are usually the pump of choice. The main reason for this is because the material being pumped never touches any part of the pump except the tube through which it flows.   A peristaltic pump never touches any of the material being pumped. This keeps the material pure. In addition, the material never touches the pump, keeping the material from ever contaminating the pump.   Consequently, peristaltic pumps are most often used situations that not only involve high purity, but also dispensing, metering and general transfer of precise amounts of materials. This makes them indispensable for the chemical, petrochemical, food and pharmaceutical industries. They are a mainstay for dosing and for precise transfer of chemicals.   Advantages of Peristaltic Pumps One of the main advantages of peristaltic pumps is mentioned earlier in this article: the media being pumped touch only the tube and not any other part of the pump. This makes it impossible for the media to be contaminated. Because the design is so simple, peristaltic pumps do not require a high degree of maintenance. They also have minimal downtime compared to other pumps.   Peristaltic pumps also pump a wide variety of fluids due to their design, including fluids that are too acid or too alkaline for other varieties of pumps. They are also a very gentle pump, making it possible for them to pump fluids that must be handled carefully.   Why Peristaltic Pumps are So Precise Peristaltic pumps are precise because of their design. They use a tube for the fluid being pumped and rollers which pinch the tube from the sides, imitating peristalsis: the motion that helps humans and animals swallow. The speed of the rollers, the size of the tube and the amount of fluid being pumped all determine the amount of materials moved and the speed at which they are moved.   This is why the amount of fluid can be measured and dispensed so accurately. Peristaltic pumps are available in a number of configurations. These can range from a simple design which works at only one speed to a pump that has numerous speeds, controlled by computer.     Precise Applications for Peristaltic Pumps There are many uses and applications for peristaltic pumps. As mentioned above, most involve precision and purity. Food manufacturing and kitchen applications include dispensing of juices and pizza sauce. They can also be used to inject vitamins A and D into various foods and in the fermentation process to circulate cell suspensions. They can be used with tissue cultures for aspiration and for harvesting cells. They are used for providing cultures with nutrients and for dispensing cosmetics.   Some other precise applications: sterilised media, spray coatings, fuels, lubricants and corrosive chemicals.   Basically, if it needs to be precise and pure, peristaltic pumps are probably the pumps of choice.  Pump Solutions Australasia imports the finest pumps from around the world into Australia. They specialise in providing solutions, not just selling pumps. They offer peristaltic pumps, submersible pumps, vacuum pumps, gear pumps and too many other varieties to list here. Their customer service staff is known as the best in the business. To learn more or to enquire about any pumps, call 1300 793 418 today or visit their website: http://www.pumpsolutions.com.au/.
