Why Anniversaries Should be Celebrated
By Morgan Zenner

Anniversaries are about relationships-and not just romantic ones. In business, it's about the relationship between a stable, successful company and the community with which it works. And sometimes celebrating an anniversary can not only bring that community together, but also wrap in a bit of strategic marketing as well.
That's what Alan Pippenger thought when his company's 150th anniversary rolled around this year. As the fifth-generation president of Requarth Lumber Co., based in Dayton, Ohio, Pippenger appreciates each and every year of business-given the longevity of the company.

Safety Focus - Use Ergonomics to Reduce Injuries

Employers can improve employee comfort and reduce injuries by applying ergonomic principles in their workplace. Ergonomics is the science of arranging and adjusting the work environment to fit the worker. For employees who type a great deal or spend a large portion of their day on computer-related tasks, here are some items to check:
Monitor - The top should be at or below eye level, slightly lower for those wearing bifocals. The screen should be 18 to 24 inches from the eyes.
Document holder - Place at the same height and distance as the monitor to reduce head movement and eyestrain.
Chair height and back - Adjust so that feet are flat on the floor.
Keyboard - Place directly in front of the monitor at the proper height to keep wrists straight and relaxed on a padded wrist rest. Forearms should be parallel to the floor.
Lighting - Use indirect lighting to avoid screen glare and use a glare shield if necessary. Place monitor at a right angle to the window and use shades to block sunlight.
Other equipment - Place phone, notepad and mouse in easy reach.
Under desk - Provide enough room to stretch or change leg positions.
Most of the recommended changes require simple adjustments to existing equipment and work areas. A new or different chair may be required but the expense will be worthwhile if you can avoid injuries and improve productivity.
Contest Launches New Brand, Gains Results
By Morgan Zenner

The ugly-themed renovation contest is a popular way to promote a remodeling company. Contestants share photos of something ugly in their home (a room, the whole house, a door, etc.) in hopes they win a makeover-and at the same time, remodelers get to show off their talents.  
Bernie Smith, president of MasterWorks Atlanta LLC, is one remodeler who utilized the ugly room contest with a well-thought out branding strategy behind it. To make the contest more worth his while, he used media partners to help with promotion to ensure his return on his investment.

Written Orientation and Training Plan

No matter how safe a work environment you provide, the success of your safety-and-health systems depends upon the managers, supervisors, team leaders and employees buy-in of safe work practices. The goal of any safety and health training program is not just to impart knowledge, but also to change behaviors and improve decision making. Through a written orientation and safety training, employees receive information about hazards, procedures, processes and expected behaviors. 
Your company safety and health training plan should include a company safety and health policy statement and employee responsibilities.
After your new employees participate in safety orientation, have their supervisors provide them with job-specific safety and health training. Do not permit employees to start a job until they have received instructions on how to perform the work safely.
In addition, it is important to build supervisor and manager competency levels in safety-and-health. As they emphasize and learn more about effective safety-process management, employees are less likely to be injured or become ill from inherent hazards.  
Fully document your safety and health training by including the date, topics covered, instructor's name and the names of employees attending the training session. Have employees answer written questions about the content of educational material you presented. This helps provide a sense of importance to the training, measures understanding and retention of the material and documents the effectiveness of the training. It also provides the opportunity for constructive feedback from the employees. Have each employee in attendance sign the documentation form on the day of completion.
Community Projects Make You Stand Out
By Morgan Zenner

There are so many different ways to get your company involved in your community, and each way says something special about the type of business you are and the importance of saying thanks to others who have helped you succeed. DelChester NARI members from Pine Street Carpenters Inc. gave back to the community in a unique way that focused something that the community holds near and dear to their hearts.
The Tyler Arboretum is a 100-year old, 650-acre historic nature site 30 miles outside of Philadelphia. The site is both beautiful and historically significant, as the lease for the site has William Penn's signature.
