    A construction site is a risky space where labourers have to work under exposed condition, fighting the rough weather and tough industrial challenges. This is why safety is a major concern while buying scaffolding equipment. Apart from fighting external challenges, there are many other critical constructional challenges that workers must overcome–the scaffolding are mounted and dismounted in accordance with the schedule and convenience – whereby scaffolding equipment must be heavy-duty and durable.(Information credit: http://www.southendscaffolding.co.za) Deaths and accidents are not uncommon in construction sites. As a contractor, it is your responsibility to look after the safety of your employees. Not sure what you can do to improve the safety of the project site? This article will walk you through some common dos and don’ts that will help enhance the safety of your workers. Dos When you purchase scaffolding equipment, safety should be your primary concern. To avoid casualties in the construction site, don’t compromise with the quality of scaffolding you purchase. Find out about the international scaffolding standards and choose your equipment wisely. Always get your equipment from an accredited vendor and only settle for products which are manufactured strictly following the standards set by the SABS. Construction sites are a vulnerable place to work. Hiring amateur workers who lack experience can be catastrophic. Contractors must ensure that all the employees have adequate training required to handle scaffoldings efficiently. In addition, workers should be trained to handle constructional exigencies. Scaffoldings need to be erected, dismounted and altered as per the working pattern. To avoid any hazards, make sure that these alterations are supervised by professional inspectors. Workers should wear a hard hat when working on or with the scaffolds. Nowadays, workers wear boots, jackets and other safety gear too. Train your workers to be alert about the people working above and below them. If you find that someone is mishandling the scaffolding, take necessary actions. Don’ts Don’t leave anything dangling on the scaffolding at the end of your work. Littering debris everywhere in and around the scaffolding might lead to tripping. Don’t overburden your scaffolding structure with heavy loads. Know how much load the structure can take to ensure safety. Don’t be reckless while mounting the scaffolding structures. Use hook-on ladders and guard rails to enhance the safety of your workers. Don’t meddle with the scaffolds unless you are asked and supervised. All the repairs should be handled by professionals. Don’t let the workers mount the scaffolding setup after heavy rain. Allow the water to dry out to prevent accidents. Construction workers have to work daily under exposed circumstances. Unavoidably, construction sites are one of the most accident prone areas. Apart from working with colossal structures, workers need to work at heights, in pits and on climb ladders. As a contractor, it is your primary responsibility to take necessary safety measures for accidents and mishaps.

    Whether it is refurbishing a kitchen or building a new one, getting the right set of the appliance is not as simple as it sounds. One requires a valid design plan to furnish the kitchen with necessary items. Besides, there are a number of considerations before deciding on what to include and what to strike out. When it comes to a kitchen appliance, there is no lack of quality appliance stores in Houston, accommodating a wide range of appliances, ranging from refrigerators, cooktops, dishwashers, wall ovens, chimneys to other specialty appliances. When it comes to buying large appliances, such as, refrigerators and dishwashers, it is natural to feel vexed, as operability is a huge factor and not appliances are worth their values. In case if you are wondering about how to kick-start the process, here are a few buying tips that can help you make a good investment: (Information Credit – Knsales.com) Avoid Impulsive Decision The most important mistake that people make while purchasing appliances is making a random choice. Even if you are not willing to plan ahead, at least make sure you are not making any impulsive decisions. Also, people often chose their products based on discounts, without considering factors like warranty and operability. This can lead to mediocre choices, and the products might fail to operate smoothly after a while. Know What You Need Knowing what you will need is half the work done. In case you have a small kitchen and a few members to accommodate, you will certainly need to reconsider large systems like big wall ovens and large ventilation hoods, which might clutter the given space and limit its functionality. Read Instruction Manuals Reading between the lines is a good idea when you are settling for your options, as this gives you a clear idea of what features are available, allowing you to compare the features before the purchase.  Don’t Let Appearances Fool You Many buyers fall prey to the high-tech appliances, which boasts of superior features but ultimately fail to deliver. Find out about the applications and read about the reviews if that is applicable, but decide in haste.  Get the Right Size Getting the right size is as important as getting the right equipment. If you have fewer members to accommodate, it is pointless to splurge extravagantly on these large appliances. Besides, the right equipment size plays a vital role in the quality of food. Inspect Thoroughly Regardless of where you fetch your products, buyers must inspect the appliances thoroughly before finalizing their decisions. Consulting the inspector is a good idea, and you can ask for a demo if that is convenient.  A kitchen renovation is an excellent opportunity for replacing an old set of appliances with a new one. While there are plenty of options available to homeowners, deciding on what to purchase can still be an excruciatingly difficult task, and therefore expert consultations are recommended. The above guide can certainly help you in the selection process, but your considerations are not limited to just these. Research about your options and choose appliances that tick all the right boxes.

    With the fashion industry booming with giant enterprises, finding an appropriate label has become a tedious affair. While many international labels are specializing in avant-garde designs, some of the Nordic designers have become the talking point in the industry, captivating the consumers with a spectrum of a vibrant ensemble. Speaking of the big names in contemporary Danish fashion houses, Ivan Grundahl has expanded the horizon to provide apparels that combine dark Nordic aesthetics with international tropes. Founded in 1973, the fashion house is internationally renowned for its universal appeal. A prestigious name in Scandinavian countries, Ivan Grundahl, has penetrated into the global market in the recent times, and as an influential label in northern Europe, it has made a considerable impact in the United States. (Information Credit – http://www.be-jewel.com/manufacturer/index/product/designer/3) Ivan Grundahl creations go beyond what’s trendy, experimenting with various kinds of textiles and bold designs to appeal to a wide range of public. Ivan Grundahl designs are cosmopolitan, while the designer fuses asymmetrical lines, Scandinavian motifs and a number of architectural shapes to produce clothing lines for an international audience. Mostly available in monochromes, the extravagant designs are appreciated for their fluidity and fragile appeal. The garments, which are found in an array of bold colors, can be teamed up with pocket bags, belts, as well as other accessories. Ivan Grundahl, a Pioneer in the Danish Fashion World Based in Copenhagen, Ivan Grundahl’s splendid Danish designs come in straddling layers and structure. As a rebel in his own right, Ivan Grundahl designs display an unconventional mix of darkness and subtlety, which come alive in multifarious apparels, from asymmetrical skirts, trousers, cardigans, T-shirts, scarves to sweatshirts. In many ways, Ivan Grundahl designs deconstruct the traditional structure, as the dark monochromes conjure a sinister mood which is undercut by a poetic fragility. The paradox in the clothing line can be understood in terms of its contrast between construction and fluidity. Interestingly, the designs balance the rawness of the construction with sophistication, juxtaposing distressed materials with natural fibers and leather. Specializing in a spectrum of ensembles, the groundbreaking work of Ivan Grundahl has been appreciated among the budding talents of the contemporary fashion industry. What’s more, infusing traditional Scandinavian tropes in the designs, the label has gone beyond its traditional roots to exploit Global tropes, enabling the users to make a powerful fashion statement. Subverting the conventional structures, the label is a game changer in the contemporary fashion universe. Whether it’s the handling of distressing materials or the deconstruction of traditional construction, Ivan Grundahl clothing line stands out from the rest in terms of its quirky appeal. As for users, the carefully crafted apparels are an ideal match for any occasion, casual or formal, and are available in a variety of sizes. Blending the dark Nordic aesthetics with the contemporary trends, the dazzling collections from Ivan Grundahl are made for the modern women, who appreciate subtlety and clever craftsmanship.

    Technology has both been a boon and a curse in terms of accessibility. We are greatly benefitted from fast health, telecommunication, electricity, transportation and delivery services. However, the curse comes in the form of easy access to illicit substances, narcotics and other morally/physically reprehensible materials. The worst affected by this curse are the parents of adolescents. They have to bear the brunt of the waywardness of their children. Although addiction does not discriminate on the basis of age, teenagers are still more susceptible to substance abuse than people of other age groups. This is because adolescence is the time of primary and secondary physical, mental and emotional growth. They learn about the world through a new eye. Often, resulting from an enthusiastic experimental spree, a young teen finds a new thrill from substance abuse. Experiments grow into a habit and then addiction. It can happen to anyone anywhere. This is where teenage rehab programs play their role in society. (Information Credit – http://sancawc.co.za) Addictions can be traced back to simple things like a couple of energy drinks or a few spoons of cold medication. Here is a concise list of common addictions: 1.) Caffeine Abuse 2.) Alcohol abuse 3.) Smoking/Nicotine Use 4.) Illicit drug abuse Marijuana Heroin Cocaine Crystal Meth Ecstasy LSD 5.) Prescription drug abuse Dextromethorphan (Cough Syrup) Vicodin Adderall Steroid Abuse Ativan Xanax Valium There are more ways to harm you than to help you. The rehabilitation programs aim to change the scenario. The motto behind almost every rehab centre is the same: teaching the teens to abstain from drugs because drugs are not the solution to their problems. They are taught to figure out the underlying problems by adopting a healthy coping mechanism. Here are some key functions and services of a typical rehab centre: Detoxing from alcohol and substance abuse Detox is necessary for patients who are physically dependant on drugs. Detoxing at home is not advisable as it can be physically painful and even life-threatening. Individual Therapy The initial counsel is offered by a primary therapist. He plays the vital role in guiding your child through the steps of getting clean. Continuous evaluation and assessment through multiple sessions a week actually helps in building a feeling of trust and reliability. Evidence-based methods such as Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), along with other techniques are used. Family Therapy The homely environment is necessary for treatment. Family therapy gives the opportunity to both the parents and their children to understand the dynamics of the current scenario; they are then taught relevant skills to sort out the situation. This accounts for a seamless transition back home after recovery. Academic Support Getting treated at the cost of academic development is not really a viable option. Therefore, as we keep in mind the academic requirements in mind, the rehab centres coordinate classwork with their home school, provide virtual courses, GED courses, or assist them with credit recovery. Group Therapy The most important aspect of rehab is making the child understand that he is not alone in his struggles. Group therapy helps the teen to gain perspective on their problems. It helps the teen to learn to cope with the underlying causes and it prevents the teen from relapsing.  Life is not always a bed of roses; hardly ever so. But substance abuse is never an option. Everyone deserves love and care, and most importantly, a second chance. As the saying goes “Just because someone stumbles and loses their path, doesn't mean they're lost forever.”

       By now, probably everyone is aware of the terms “pollution” and “global warming”. From acid rain and erosion to the unavailability of drinking water, the world has already witnessed several major impacts of pollution and global warming. In the current scenario, it has become essential to develop new ways to preserve nature and reduce our levels of pollution. Experiments are also being conducted to find feasible solutions where the ultra-modern workplace can thrive without leaving behind an excessive carbon footprint. (Information Credit – Oxbow SA) Being environment conscious, many companies in South Africa are nowadays providing eco energy solutions for the office space. This type of company will analyse the electricity spend of your company first and then discuss what would be the best solution for your office. a. Energy reducing lights: Gone are the days when people used high power bulbs. Advancement of technology has led to the invention of bulbs and tube lights that consume less energy and at the same time have greater output than the old-fashioned bulbs. Light Emitting Diode (LED) and Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFL) are some of the feasible solutions that are extensively used in place of traditional bulbs. They have the power to light up a larger area and if the placement of lights is done strategically then, even the nooks and crannies will also be illuminated properly. The CFL and LED lights are also priced lower than the traditional bulbs. b. Heating Solutions: In South Africa, a major part of electricity is derived from coal. There is also the issue of depletion of coal. Therefore, the companies in South Africa providing eco energy solutions are looking in the direction of other natural sources as the source of mass electricity production. Solar power and hydro power have become a popular means of generating electricity as alternative solutions. For instance, if the solar panels are placed correctly then it is possible to generate more than 10 watts per square foot. Due to advancement in technology it is now possible to install solar panels in a much smaller area and generate enough power to supply electricity to the whole office building. Different alternate heating solutions are also used by the eco energy solutions companies in Cape Town to reduce electricity bills of office buildings in and around Cape Town. When you are choosing an eco-energy solution providing company then, you should look in to whether they have the necessary skill to install alternative energy solutions. Their services should follow the electric wiring installations guidelines and they should have a Fire and Safety certificate. The aim is to reduce your electricity spends per annum by providing feasible solutions like LED and CFL lights and make your office dependent on alternative sources like solar energy. You should also check out whether the solutions provided by the company are within your budget. It is best to choose an experienced company in the field of providing eco-energy solutions in Cape Town.

    Like kitchen renovations, bathroom renovations have become a trend in modern homes. Clear-cut planning of the bathroom remodelling will ensure that you are satisfied with the end product, so take the time to make sure planning is done properly. There are several companies in southern suburbs of Cape Town that offer professional bathroom renovation services. Keeping the remodelling professional and within budget is not as easy as it appears to be, so below are some pointers from the experts at these renovation companies: (Information Credit – http://homedecorinteriors.co.za/services/bathroom-renovations) 1. Have a proper plan before starting: Working out a proper plan with a professional remodeler will assure that the budget you allotted for the renovation of your bathroom, the design and the timeline are all realistic. Sound planning will also prevent hidden costs and unnecessary, costly mistakes. 2. Maintain plumbing: Another reason to hire a professional is that they will show you how to make use of existing plumbing pipes. Relocating essential bathroom utilities like the toilet and the bathtub are daunting tasks, which can be best done by a specialist, saving you a lot of money. 2. Mirror frame-up: The renovation experts dress up the builder-grade mirror with a solid frame. This is done at a far lower price than installing a big hanging mirror. A frame is an essential component of bathroom renovation as it hides away any normal wear and tear. 3. Toilet installation: The right bathroom renovation company will look to save you money by saving your toilet. If the ceramic pan and cistern are still modern-looking and are in good condition, they are able to replace only the seat and lid. 4. Using proper budget items: The experts use large pieces of salvage wood as a shower curtain valance. Although it looks like an expensive buy, it actually serves as a focal point and can save a lot of your money. These salvage products are usually found in flea markets, antique stores and auctions. 5. Open shelves: Despite the fact that the bathroom is a small, private space, open shelving can make it seem more spacious. Open shelving lightens up the interior décor of your bathroom, adding style and function. 6. Count on countertops: For a more elegant finish inside your bathroom, the renovation experts can easily install granite countertops. Choosing a slab granite vanity as the focal point of your bathroom’s interior space will look good and keep your renovation project within budget. Choosing the right bathroom renovator who has the right skills and has your best interests at heart, will save you time and money, and bring about all the desired results.

The objective of the clearing agents in Cape Townis primarily to check the insurance of the export and import goods. After collecting the required data about the cargo, they group them into different categories. This determines the export or import fees of the goods. They have to play the role of a coordinator basically. Another task of these clearing agents in Cape Town is to keep the records safely such that a person can refer to them in case of any discrepancy. (Information Credit – http://www.optimainternational.co.za/projects/page/about) Let’s look at the role of the clearing agents in the logistics department elaborately. As said earlier, the clearing agents have to determine the correct tariff of the goods for the customs duties (if applicable). According to the tax rate of a country, the clearing agents must calculate the import duties and taxes/VAT that must be paid by the interested parties. The clearing agent has to confirm that the information received from the consignee and the shipper is authentic before submitting them to the customs clearance department. If they do not adhere to strict norms of the customs department then, both the logistics company and its customers have to face huge penalties. Therefore the role of the clearing agents is of utmost importance in the logistics business. The clearing agent has to frame the Bill of Entry (BOE). This needs to be given to the customs/SARS via electronic data interchange (EDI). Other duties regarding customs clearance that include port health exams, specific cargo requirements in accordance to the laws should be seen to avoid any penalty or delay. The duty of the clearing agent does not end with the release of the customs clearance papers. They also need to look at the various modes of transport. Air: The clearing agents have to check the process through which the cargo is transferred from the warehouse of the logistics company or their clients’ own warehouse to the consignee. After this, the cargo will be shipped via air services. Sea: The clearing agents will have to see that all the requirements are met for transport by sea. Then, the goods would be given in care of the consignee that will assign the goods to ships going to different regions according to the goods’ destination. Road: In case of road freight, the limitations of the vehicle have to be taken into consideration. The clearing agent sees that everything is completed smoothly. LCL (less than container load): The cargo is collected from a specialised licensed warehouse first and then delivered. FCL (full container load): The release notice is handed out depending on the shipping line depot agreement and the transport agreement. The container is then handed over to the consignee. Therefore, the clearing agent in Cape Town plays an essential role when it comes to logistics service.

    Outdoor fire pits have become a trend and landscaping favourite for homeowners, architects and interior designers. Fire pits and fire bowls enhance the looks of outdoor gardens, backyards, patios, balconies, terraces, even indoors at times. They add a unique experience of warmth and comfort while beautifying the overall ambiance of the building. But there are many types of fire pits to choose from, that can be customized to meet the desired looks of the area. (Information Credit: http://www.theoriginalflame.com/fire-pits-fire-bowls/) Lets us view the different kinds of pits available in the present market. 1. Classic Fire Pits Natural Gas Fire Pits Wood Fire pits 2. Fire and Water themed Fire pits 3. DIY Fire pits 4. Gas Fire tables 5. Table Top Fire Pits 6. Fire Urns Wood fire pits are easy to build providing many customisable options at various prices. DIY-savvy homeowners can design and make their own fire pits at a very pocket-friendly budget while rejuvenating the house and the backyard. Those not looking for wood wastes or too much headache regarding a fire pit can opt for two other types: Natural Gas Fire pits or Propane Fire pits. We can summarise the key disparities between these two kinds of fire pits to help you choose from either. 1. Every house has natural gas connection for their homes which can be taken to provide fuel to the natural gas pit while propane pit requires a separate propane tank for fuel feeding. Propane pits provide versatility and mobility over the permanent option of natural gas pit. 2. Propane pits are no-doubt costlier than natural gas pits. When you need the pit for a spur- of -the moment use and not wait for a fuel refill as natural gas is always available, natural gas pit gives an edge over the others. 3. Propane pits provide higher heat energy as the thermal unit count for same amounts of propane is more than that of natural gas. These minute details can help you decide on buying a fire pit variant that best suits your needs and purpose. Here are some other points to consider before planning your own fire pit, adding an extra quality to your house. Costs can be saved by the owner if the hole is dug and stones are bought by the owner through consultations with a technical service provider of a reputed company. It is the personal choice of the owner to choose between the various kinds of pits offered by companies through market research and future sustainability reviews of the unit. Regardless of the style chosen by the owner, it is relevant to consider whether the unit will be permanent, fixed or portable. This will narrow down the choices and help owners suffering from disillusionment while choosing a fire pit. Deciding upon the fuel type to be used for the fire pit too will help the homeowners choose among the varied range of pits available in the market. They also need to look into the matter of how much time they are willing to spare for the caring and cleaning of the unit. A natural surface such as concrete, stone, gravel, brick or slate or a fire-resistant compound should be the option for setting up a safe fire pit as flying of embers and sparks is a very common problem faced while using fire pits. It is also safer to install a fire extinguisher near the fire pit if things get out of hand. There are various options available to set the right mood for a great campfire night, or relaxing under the starry night. Energy efficient low power LED lights can be put around the pit. Metal chairs, or fire resistant furniture around the pit enhances safety measures. It is always recommendable to ‘look before you leap’, i.e., plan, chalk out and research before buying or making a fire pit for your new household makeover.

    It is becoming increasingly difficult for businesses to tackle wayward debtors. Even large businesses face the trouble of collecting their outstanding monies on time. Thus, today the issue is relevant for businessesof all sorts and sizes. In present times, it is not easy to handle such issues alone. After all how much time will you waste following up with a non-paying customer or how many such customers can you follow up with? There are numerous Credit Management Agencies who are waiting to take responsibility for such non-paying customers. It is a sensible decision to hire the services of such a registered company.   The authentic collection agencies are well versed in debt collection strategies and legalities. Hence, you should hire them to ease your anxiety. They will devise a strategy according to the type of debtor. Some of the non-payers may require more persuasion than the others. Sometimes, sending a letter or email to debtors will make them pay the bills. But, it has been observed in most of the cases that they do not even bother to open the letter. In fact, some debtors have become experts at avoiding payments.   Hence, collecting debts is a test of skill, patience and perseverance. The registered agencies can easily point out this type of debtor by their attitude. Some of them may claim that they had never applied for credit from you, while some may acknowledge the debt. Then, they will give all possible excuses to delay the date of payment.   Here are some suggestions on how to handle difficult situations when collecting debt.   The first step would be to hire a registered company which will collect the debt on your behalf and protect you from fraudsters. For this, you should thoroughly research the company or agency’s website and see how experienced they are. They follow the norms and devise strategies according to the situations. (Information Credit – https://www.accountability.co.za/new_m_quality_services.php)   Although they will act as a layer of security for your company, you should make clear that the payment has to be made on time when your client approach you for credit. Ensure that your client understands the terms and conditions when applying for credit with your company. Before providing credit, do a background check on your potential client. This will significantly reduce the number of errant debtors. Do not depend upon hearsay. You should always be focused when making decisions. Do not listen to gossip or personal stories narrated by the client when they are applying for credit. The debt collecting agencies, as your representation, are always focused and professional when meeting a client. They keep a tight rein on conversations and so should you. These types of agencies often ask questions rapidly to bring out the truth from the wayward debtors. This strategy has a high success rate. You should notify the Credit Bureaus when none of the above methods work. This will result in a bad credit rating for the debtor and they will be listed with the Credit Bureau.   The last resort is litigation. The agency will advise filing a lawsuit against an exceptionally stubborn client when they do not pay heed to any warnings. The proceedings, thus, must be taken seriously and executed properly.
