There are no weeds to pull out and no trimming of overgrown grass from time to time.   The only maintenance required for synthetic turf lawns depends on the kind of situation it is being used in. Families with pets and children will require more cleaning up than those without them. A few steps of care will ensure that their lawns are clean, looking great and last a long time.    Carrying out a few maintenance steps will ensure that these synthetic turf lawns serve their owners a long time. These include keeping them clear off fallen leaves, branches, and other rotting debris that fly and land over them. Using a rake or leaf blower will help keep this patch clean and clear off debris and give a maintained, clean and groomed look.    Spraying water over the synthetic lawn once a week with a hose helps remove dust, dirt, or pollen. For homes with pets, clearing their solid waste using plastic bags and pooper-scoopers helps keep the area clean. In case there are unpleasant odours, using white vinegar diluted in equal parts of lukewarm water mixed in a bucket and poured over that area helps neutralise any odours.   The lawn should be regularly inspected for moss or algae, especially in damp weather and in shaded areas. Sprays with chemicals need to be used with caution; the owners should ensure that the correct rates and application method recommended by the company are followed.   TigerTurf’s product TurfGuard is the most effective and safe product to use on these artificial landscape lawns.

Food processing machinery is a complex and multi-dimensional market encompassing all the machinery and equipment used in commercial food production and packaging. The scale of the market can be imagined with respect to the ever increasing food products. The market is sensitive to several factors such as the type of food produced and the processing method employed. The end-user of processing machinery products are the food manufacturers. Most of the machinery is not mass-produced but is made in response to individual consumer needs. Due to the vast number of areas that require the use of processing equipment, the market serves a wide range of applications. The consistently rising demand and consumption of processed foods is a key driver for the growth of Global Food Processing Machinery Market. Despite being a universal phenomenon, this demand is more specific to the developing world. The recent economic success and increasing market openness to foreign goods has radically changed the food processing sector in countries such as India and China. One important consequence of this is the rise in consumption of meat. Meat processing equipment are one of the fastest growing segment, especially in developing countries. The market also faces several challenges with regard to upgrading the equipment or complete overhaul in certain cases. Much of these changes are made to overcome difficulties associated with production capacity or due to government regulations. The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) is one such legislation that is expected to have a profound impact for many machinery manufacturers. Processing machinery that comes in direct contact with food face much severe regulations. The increasing consumer focus on quality also implies use of more specialized and sophisticated equipment that are more capital intensive. The market is segmented on the basis of type, application and geography. Request Sample of the Report: http://www.orbisresearch.com/contacts/request-sample/222974 On the basis of type, food processing machinery and equipment market occupies the largest share followed by food packaging machinery and market. Utilities category includes all the other types of ancillary machines such as those used to purify air and water. On the basis of application industrial bakery segment occupies the dominant position, with meat processing equipment recording the highest growth rate. The beverage processing segment is an important component but is plagued by market saturation.   The dairy segment is expected to grow at an impressive rate due to the increasing preference for high protein diets. On the basis of geography Europe occupies the dominant market share and houses several of the top market players. Germany, Netherlands and Denmark are the important regions in Europe. Firms belonging to Europe are also major exporters. In Asia- Pacific, China occupies a significant market share and is regarded as the largest manufacturer of processing machinery in the World. Japan and Australia are the other important players in the market. The large and highly fragmented nature of the market throws up several interesting opportunities. The increased sophistication of the industry has led to a consensus on the need for adopting more automated technologies. Adoption of such technologies is aimed at increasing speed and efficiency.

LSC, first incorporated in 1926 with rich family history, offers high quality locksmithing, security and hardware products to the Australian market. The business attributes its consistent and significant growth during the last decade to its ability to change and adapt alongside the rapidly evolving security industry. Keeping pace with the industry as it moves from a mechanical environment to a digital one, LSC has developed a vast range of over 30,000 hardware, software and service products and maintained a focus on being the distributor of choice for new security technology and products in Australia. The company’s growth, diversification and complexity led it to seek a contemporary ERP solution, one that could manage all supply chain and distribution efforts as well as provide top-line visibility into critical business information. “Security is a growth industry and technological advancements are being made all the time. Our staff are used to seeing smart technology built into the products we sell, from the humble car key right up to home automation, commercial and automotive security,” said Paul Newton, LSC’s project team leader. “In order to remain competitive and retain staff, the onus was on us as managers to provide modern software which is flexible, intuitive and instinctive rather than proprietary, complex and unwieldy.” LSC wanted an ERP solution that in addition to supply and distribution functionality would also reduce the manual sharing of information between staff and could centralise access to this information for greater transparency. During the procurement process, LSC discovered a great fit in Epicor ERP software. “We knew we needed streamlined processes in terms of supply and distribution in order to continue to grow,” said Newton. “In addition, we wanted some specific functionality which Epicor offers and when we realised the potential for Epicor to become a real, strategic partner to us, the decision to change systems was obvious.” “We churn out huge volumes of orders and have to make sure we supply customers as efficiently as possible without introducing time delays into the supply chain. With Epicor ERP, staff will be able to complete more sophisticated demand forecasting, and also maintain the integrity of our stock and manage our national supply chain even more effectively,” said Newton. “Epicor ERP offers its customers the industry-specific functionality and flexibility they need to help support their customer base and supply chain,” said Vince Randall, vice president for Australia and New Zealand, Epicor Software. “LSC has grown alongside technological advancements in security and the implementation of Epicor ERP will streamline functions such as sales and order management, warehouse management, inventory optimisation and forecasting. This will permit them to focus on bringing new technologies to market and training and servicing their customer base, growing even further.”   The Vital Aspects of Sheet Metal Shaping Are Taken Care by Brampton Sheetmetal 2017-03-20T06:16:14Z the-vital-aspects-of-sheet-metal-shaping-are-taken-care-by-brampton-sheetmetal The need for a right looking machine and any such parts is very high across all industries and that is why, you need to hire the right services that have the needed amount of expertise and experience in the industry to take up any sort of challenge and come on top of it.

In terms of mental illness, as an employer or manager you are compelled to: ·       identify workplace practices, actions or incidents which may cause or contribute to the mental illness ·       take actions to eliminate or minimise these risks. The legal obligations of employers in relation to the management of mental illness in the workplace are as follows: 1.       Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) legislation requires you to ensure your workplace is safe and healthy for all employees and does not cause ill health or aggravate existing conditions. It is important to objectively assess the actual OHS risk of a worker with mental illness. Proceed as one would with any Risk Assessment: a.       determine the degree of risk and take steps to minimise or prevent it b.       take action to eliminate or manage the risk as appropriate. 2.       Discrimination in the workplace against someone with a mental illness (or other disability) is unlawful under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992. You are also required to make reasonable adjustments in the workplace, to meet the needs of workers with mental illness. 3.       The Privacy Act 1988, requires you to ensure personal information about a worker’s mental health status is not disclosed to anyone without the affected employees’ consent. The only exceptions may be: a.       use of the information is necessary to prevent or lessen a serious and imminent threat to the life or health of the individual concerned or another person, or b.       use of the information is required or authorised by law. You are obliged to eliminate, isolate or lessen health and safety risks, while taking care to ensure the privacy of employees is upheld.  Under the Fair Work Act 2009, it is essential to ensure that unfavourable action is not taken against a worker because of their mental illness. An adverse action can include dismissal, injuring the employee, altering the position of the employee to the employees’ disadvantage, refusing to employ a prospective employee or discriminating against an employee with mental illness. While employers have several legal obligations, 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 omissions do not adversely affect the health or safety of others ·       cooperate with any reasonable instructions to ensure workplace health and safety. Clarification The law defines discrimination to include both direct and indirect discrimination. It is important to note that a failure to make reasonable adjustments for a worker with disability, including a worker with mental illness, may constitute direct or indirect discrimination. Direct discrimination occurs in employment where: a worker is treated less favourably by an employer than someone without disability. For example, refusing to employ or dismissing someone because they have a mental illness. or not allowing someone with depression to work part-time where this arrangement has been sought as an adjustment for the worker’s mental illness, may be direct discrimination. Indirect discrimination occurs in employment where: an employer sets a requirement or condition that applies generally, but an employee cannot comply with it because of their disability or they are disadvantaged. For example, it may be indirect discrimination to require a worker with mental illness to start work at 7am, when the effect of their medication means they are not alert in the early morning. or It may be indirect discrimination to expect that employees must work an 8 hour shift, but not allow a worker with mental illness to take additional breaks where required, to be able to complete their shift. Reasonable adjustments are changes which can be made to a job, to enable a worker to perform their duties more effectively in the workplace. They should be in response to the particular needs or issues of a worker and can include: ·       offering flexible working arrangements (e.g. job rotation, variable start and finish times) ·       changing some aspects of the job or work tasks (e.g. breaking down a large, demanding project into a number of smaller tasks) ·       changing the workplace or work area (e.g. moving a worker to a quieter work area) ·       purchasing or modifying equipment. An adjustment will be a ‘reasonable adjustment’ unless it would cause an employer an ‘unjustifiable hardship’ to make the adjustment.

Truedek has seen rapid growth in the building and construction sectors, and is widely used on numerous and varied building projects.   The installation guide has been prepared in order to provide clarity to the clients about every step concerning the installation of Truedek. It helps the Truedek team and the client’s project team to develop a perfect understanding about the things to be taken care of at their end so that the project is completed in minimum time and with optimum results.   Truedek steel decking is a permanent concrete formwork system, purpose-designed to bring a broad and clear range of practical advantages over typical metal decking systems. The system is lightweight, modular, easy to handle and made to specification. Truedek is available in heights of 90, 110, 140 and 160mm.   Among the first three steps for installation spelt out in the guide to help clients are pre-start, detailing and labelling.   In the first step called ‘Pre-Start,’ the client needs to check for manoeuvring access for deliveries and installation. They will need to ensure that roofing straps are available for the lifting of all Truedek panels. There should be either a side access or a roof access in order to lift the panels onto the deck. If there are purlins or girts, they may have to be removed or else the installation will have to be delayed.   In the next step called ‘Detailing,’ the client will need to supply AutoCAD ‘for construction’ drawings to Premier Steel Technologies so that detailing of Truedek for dimensions and quantity can be done. These plans should have all details on dimensional layout, reinforcing cover, shear stud details, penetrations, precast recesses, pull out of threaded bars, reinforcing, beams, columns, step ups and set downs.     The third step is called ‘Labelling.’ In this step, the client will supply AutoCAD ‘for construction’ drawings in order to establish the marking plan. The marking plan will provide panel details and position by either colour coding or numbered legend. Each panel will be either colour coded or labelled for ease of selection. It should be noted that each panel or group of panels have to fit in a determined position and cannot be substituted. Clients who have any doubts regarding this and the procedures may consult the PST team.   Premier Steel Technologies was established in 1980 based on a partnership between experts in the metal fabrication and construction industries.

Medifab Sets its Sights on Global Expansion with Promapp Deployment 2017-03-06T22:12:56Z medifab-sets-its-sights-on-global-expansion-with-promapp-deployment Auckland, 7 March 2017 – Medifab, a leading New Zealand headquartered medical device company, has announced the deployment of Promapp’s cloud-based business process management software to support the company’s global expansion as well as compliance with the US Food and Drug Administration and international quality standards   Medifab’s products make a positive difference to the lives of persons with a disability through the provision of leading edge postural support solutions for a wide range of special needs.  It offers more than 130 products which include everything from wheelchairs, standing aids, beds and bathroom aids through to strollers and push chairs, indoor seating, car seats and harnesses.    Operating in a highly regulated industry, the company must comply with significant quality systems and regulatory requirements to meet its customers’ needs. These requirements are intended to ensure that Medifab consistently designs, produces and markets medical devices that are safe and effective for their intended purpose.  Indeed, the latest revisions in global quality standards and regulations has meant an increased emphasis and focus at Medifab to identify and manage its product and business risks. In recent years the company’s manufacturing and operations centre has been certified to the ISO 9001 Quality System and ISO 14001 Environment Management standard. However, Medifab’s growth and business plans to export to overseas markets requires compliance with specific Medical Device regulations, in particular ISO 13485 (Medial Devices Quality management systems – Requirements for regulatory purposes) and the USA FDA’s Current Good Manufacturing Practice (CGMP) regulations, 21 CFR 820. These regulations govern the methods and controls Medifab uses to design, manufacture, package, label, store, distribute and service its products. “We’re expanding internationally and storing processes and standard operating procedures in various static formats such as Excel and Word was increasingly holding the business back from its full potential,” said Stuart Clook, Quality and Regulatory Affairs Manager, Medifab.  “Not only were these processes difficult to manage but they also fell out of date easily and were often misunderstood by staff.  At the end of the day, there is little value in a procedures manual that nobody looks at or updates.  In order to future proof and facilitate our future business growth, we knew that all our staff had to be on the same page operating and managing processes that are simple and easy to understand,” said Clook.  Finding the Right Solution As a result, Medifab went to market for a solution which would support the organisation’s ability to meet the requirements of the global market. A business process management tool would also support the creation of the right culture and structure to support the transition of the business from a service-based company to a global manufacturer.  Innovation and product development would in turn need the support of sophisticated processes which could be easily understood and maintained by everyone in the business.      “We looked at several solutions but concluded that Promapp offered more than just a compliance and risk tool, it could also be our core solution for ongoing business process improvement.  In addition, having compared its feature functionality against our existing programs, it was easy to see that our staff would be able to easily create, maintain and share processes.  Importantly, we would be able to reduce costs in some parts of the business while meeting our commitments and responsibilities to our customers and regulators worldwide,” said Clook.  More than 300 Process Improvements Underway in Six Months Since seamlessly launching Promapp throughout the business in September last year, Medifab has published 42 processes and actioned over 300 improvements. This has significantly raised the level of collaboration among different teams and helped the company to improve performance to meet customers’ expectations while setting it up to start the formal ISO 13485 certification process.   While Medifab currently uses ISO 14971 (Medical devices -- Application of risk management to medical devices) as a key component in its business and product development processes, Promapp’s Risk Management module and associated workflow makes this requirement straightforward to manage and administer.   Medifab is also using Promapp’s Improvement module to record and manage customer feedback, complaints, internal non-conformances, engineering change requests and opportunities for improvement.  Promapp’s built in workflow allows users to easily manage and monitor the timely closure of these opportunities and incidents.   In addition, being a web based system means that Promapp is accessible from any device in any location.  It can also integrate with other systems which makes the investment in processes sustainable. At the same time, sharing processes through their ERP and CRM systems promotes higher frequency viewing of processes.   “Ultimately, processes should be easy to manage and update for all staff, not just technical specialists.  The use of pictures and videos for hands-on processes, as well as integration of risks throughout a specific process, engages staff and leads to continuous reviews and improvements, eliminating the costly, time consuming cycle of large-scale ‘catch up’ initiatives needed every few years. Automatic version control and change notifications not only save time and effort for audits they also make sure that the improvements made from efforts such as ISO 9001 translate from paper to real life.   “As an organisation, our mission is to make a positive difference to lives of persons with a disability, therapists and carers.  Promapp has made a positive difference to our staff. It has been readily embraced by our 60 staff and smoothed the path for growth across all operations. It's a perfect vehicle for continuous improvement and ongoing capturing of new and updated processes,” said Clook.  About Promapp Established in 2002, Promapp Solutions (http://www.promapp.com) works with hundreds of organisations worldwide to foster a thriving business improvement and process management culture.   Promapp’s cloud-based business process management (BPM) software makes it easy to create, navigate, share, and change business processes, enabling continuous improvement, quality assurance, risk management and business continuity.
