A brief guide to the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme

Alex Malley on Bloomberg TV

What are some of the issues business may face?

"For those businesses that will not be directly liable under the scheme, there will be issues for those businesses to consider as well. The importance of those issues depends on how emissions intensive their business inputs are, for example, how much electricity is used. When the increased costs from the scheme cascade through the economy, a decision should be made on pricing (whether to pass on the extra costs or not) and it may impact upon investment decisions."

* SAFETY NEWS & ARTICLES

I never realized that a wet dishcloth can be a one size fits all lid to cover a fire in a pan! This is a dramatic video (30-second, very short) about how to deal with a common kitchen fire ... oil in a frying pan.

Read the following introduction, then watch the show ... It's a real eye-opener!! 
 
At the Fire Fighting Training school they would demonstrate this with a deep fat fryer set on the fire field.

An instructor would don a fire suit and using an 8 oz cup at the end of a 10 foot pole toss water onto the grease fire.

The results certainly got the attention of the students.

The water, being heavier than oil, sinks to the bottom where it instantly becomes superheated.

The explosive force of the steam blows the burning oil up and out.

On the open field, it became a thirty foot high fireball that resembled a nuclear blast. Inside the confines of  a kitchen, the fire ball hits the ceiling and fills the entire room. 
 
Also, do not throw sugar or flour on a grease fire. One cup creates the explosive force of two sticks of dynamite.

This is a powerful message----watch the video and don't forget what you see. Tell your whole family about this video.

Or better yet, send this link to them and tell them about NiGHTBRiGHT Australia!

There's a Glowing Revolution in the Exit Sign Industry!

There's a new kid on the block when it comes to exit signs, and this one is made of Photoluminescent materials.

These signs have come about at just the right time. 

The current  administration-indeed, the mood of the country in general-is calling for not only a much greener approach to energy, but also a greater focus on savings in terms of budgetary concerns.

These exit signs fit the bill easily in both categories, and will be the answer for some time going forward.

Let's examine why this is the case.

Photoluminescent exit signs have many advantages over their predecessors in the exit sign industry.

The old incandescent lighting and the subsequent radioactive tritium exit signs both carried with them huge baggage that made their replacement not only inevitable, but a necessity.

Incandescent lighting requires that you change bulbs, keep electrical wiring intact, and have an adequate backup system, whether that be batteries or a generator system.

They need regular maintenance, and then of course there's the direct cost of the energy needed to power them.

Tritium exit signs are another matter entirely. Because of their radioactive nature, they are individually tagged and tracked by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. When it comes time to get rid of them, they need to be disposed of by a licensed hazardous materials handler.

Then there's all the paperwork involved-and business owners that choose not to comply with these regulations will face a bevy of penalties and fines from the authorities.

Who needs those problems! In fact, there are so many environmental concerns about these exit signs that they are no longer being manufactured or sold in the United States.

Photoluminescent exit signs have none of these issues. They require no electricity or external power of any kind to run.

Photoluminescent exit signs have none of these issues. They require no electricity or external power of any kind to run.

They need no battery or generator backup to ensure that they will illuminate when needed.

These exit signs and other emergency egress markings collect and store ambient light so that they can dispense it when there is an emergency event.

They glow green to a distance of up to 100 feet, and are visible even in smoke-filled environments or utter darkness.

They will stay lit for several days, and are 100% reliable.

They will be there when you need them.           

These photoluminescent exit signs and other egress products can also do wonders for your bottom line as well as the environment. 

With an installation of 100 of these signs, a typical building would realize a direct savings of more than $3,500 per year, as well as a reduction in your building's carbon footprint of some half a million pounds of CO2 over the life of the products.

That's significant!
