Hate wearing your high-visibility apparel? You’re certainly not alone.

June 8, 2012

 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The St. Joseph Valley Building Trades, the South Bend Maennerchor Club and the Working Person’s Store of Lakeville will once Again Raise Awareness and Dollars for Diabetes Research With A Full Day of Fun and Music

(South Bend, IN)  Saturday June 16 the St. Joseph Valley Building Trades in conjunction with the Working Person’s Store will conduct their 26th Annual “D.A.D.S (Dollars Against Diabetes) Day” fundraiser. As in the past eleven years, a portion of that fund raising will be generated by  a Motorcycle Poker Run traversing area roads, towns and businesses with its start/ finish at The South Bend Maennerchor Club, 219 North Sycamore Street. (b/t LaSalle and Colfax) The Poker Run will see the first motorcycle leaving the Club grounds at 10AM with all participants returning no later than 5PM. A contribution of $20.00 purchases the ride opportunity, a commemorative tee-shirt, ball cap and Snoopy Pin (the national mascot of DAD’s Day!) and of course entry into the “after party”! This event also welcomes all others interested in supporting the cause by requesting a $5.00 donation at the door after 4:00PM. Live music will be provided beginning at 4:30PM and continue throughout the afternoon and evening at the Club Grounds. Food and refreshments will be available with a beer garden also on site.

Last year’s local “DADS Day” efforts raised nearly $9,000 which was added to the National Building Trades campaign with its mission- “Find a cure for Diabetes!” All proceeds generated, both locally and nationally, go directly to the Diabetes Research Institute- University of Miami Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine,Miami,Florida.

The iPod Generation at Work: What to Watch For

Job Safety

Should you listen to music while on the job, or not? It’s a question employees consider more and more in this digital age, and it’s important for employers to consider as well. Developing a workplace policy for listening to music, among other workplace safety policies is a good recommendation for employers, for reasons of productivity as well as safety.

There’s an argument to be made that workers are more motivated at work when they are listening to music. Especially in quieter, non-hazardous environments, like an office. Music can mask background noise, so the employee can focus, and it also improves the employee’s mood and productivity. Some employees even have a better perception of their company as a result. So in these cases, using a personal listening device, like an iPod, can actually be a benefit to both employer and employee. Continue Reading…

Heat Stress and PPE: What You Need To Know

Heat Stress Can Be Minimized
Your personal protective equipment (PPE) is designed to protect you in the most extreme heat conditions. But what about when your PPE is the cause of the problem and staying compliant isn’t as easy as you thought it would be?
Environmental heat, caused by the temperature outside or in your workplace, coupled with humidity, and the heat of the equipment you are working with, is enough to contend with as it is. But of course, you must contend with it while wearing layers of heavy clothing, which compounds the problem. Continue Reading…

High-Visibility Clothing: The Right Choice in Any Weather

High Visibility Clothing

If there’s two things we know about high-visibility workwear, it’s these: It’s important to wear, and most workers hate to. The reasons for wearing it are obvious and important; it provides much-needed visibility in hazardous road-side work environments. But the worker’s reasons fornot wearing it are just as valid. It’s uncomfortable. It’s cumbersome. It gets in the way, making more trouble than it’s worth. At least, in the eyes of the wearer. Continue Reading…

Comfort to the MAX: Black Stallion MAX Comfort Stick Welding Gloves

Black Stallion Work Gloves

It used to be when you bought a pair of stick welding gloves, that you had to make a choice. You could go with the big bulky and barely moveable variety, which you knew would keep you safe but would leave your fingers feeling like they’d been fully supporting the weight of an anvil all day. Or you could go with a pair you could actually stand to wear, which for once didn’t feel like you wear actually wearing sheet metal on your hands, but sacrificed protection. What’s the point in creating a comfortable welding glove if it falls apart? And what’s the point in creating a durable welding glove if it was painful and cumbersome to wear? Thank goodness, those days are over. Continue Reading…
