If you live and breathe, you have faced safety risks. June is National Safety Month – a time to focus on having safety supplies and safety practices in place to ensure the best outcomes when accidents do happen. According to the National Safety Council, unintentional injuries have recently risen to become the 4th leading cause of death in the United States. With all of the illnesses, such as cancer and heart disease, that is a startling statistic. But if you are prepared with first aid kits and have preventative measures in place in your workplace, home, farm or school, those numbers can be decreased. How Can You Make Your Environments Safer This Month? 1. Make sure all first aid kits are properly stocked in case of emergency. 2. Get fire extinguishers tested, filled or replaced. 3. Look at wood and cement structures, decks and sidewalks to ensure they are free of tripping hazards. Fix any tripping or slipping hazards. 4. Check medications to ensure they are not expired and dispose of any that are outdated or no longer used. Most pharmacies will take them back. 5. Learn CPR and basic first aid. 6. If you own a business, consider adding an AED unit. 7. Have a fire drill for employees or your children. 8. Check your family’s bike helmets for proper fit. 9.

That oil spill in your garage is an eyesore, but if you work with chemicals, motor oil or other hazardous liquids that may spill, having the right absorbent handy is a necessity. If you are environmentally conscious and deal with hazardous waste that causes spills, Sphagsorb is a great option, compared to other absorbents. While kitty litter and dishwashing detergent are cheap ways to pick up most of a small oil leak or spill, they may not cover a large spill very well and are certain to allow an oily seepage. Here’s why Sphagsorb is a great choice for spills large and small: It is Safe and Absorbent Traditional absorbents are carcinogenic, and that is a harmful thing to be exposed to. People and animals are safe to touch and breathe around Spagsorb. Peat moss made of partially fossilized plant matter, Sphagsorb is an all-natural solution to disposing of leaks and spills. Affordable and Eco-Friendly Spill Absorbent The plentiful and renewable materials that make up Sphagsorb provide a cost effective alternative to traditional spill absorbents, and Sphasorb works just as well or better than competitive brands. Because it is made up of partially fossilized plant life, Sphagsorb is biodegradable, unlike other spill absorbents. If you are Earth conscious, when you send your mess to the landfill, you can feel better that it will compost down like organic matter, rather than staying in its current form for decades. Sphagsorb expands and encapsulates all of the liquid and hazardous material that is soaks up, so it becomes more absorbent and takes less absorbent to a big job. Because it encapsulates the...Learn More
Controlled burns can have great benefits to your pasture or grassland, but be sure to put safety first during controlled grass fires. At least one Iowa man has been injured by an out of control grass fire this year. Controlled burns will make the grass look fresh in just a few days’ time, getting rid of all the ugly brown grass and weeds left behind by the Iowa winter. But that may be the least of the benefits. Grass fires kill ticks and parasitic worms that hide in the old grass. Burning dead grass provides more immediate nutrients for new foliage and allows it to come in thicker and without being smothered by bunches of long grass. Be Prepared in Case Grass Fire Gets Out of Control Benjamin Franklin said, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” This strategy can easily be put to use when it comes to controlled grass fires. Burns and smoke inhalation can take you out of commission, costing you time off work, medical bill payments and more. Armed with the Right Equipment for Fire Safety Have what it takes to stop a fire in its tracks and contain it to the area you want to burn. Water Sprayers – Always have one more water sprayer than you think you will need. Livestock sprayers work well on most burns. Water Pumps- If you need a means of filling water sprayers from a creek or pond, you may want to have a gas powered water pump on hand. Handheld Blower – These work well for moving burning leaf debris, but always blow back...Learn More
