HAVE A SAFE HOLIDAY WEEKEND!

by pat brownlee on April 19, 2014

There will be many travelers over the Easter Holiday weekend, and we want to wish them safe adventures wherever they go.  Sunrise Services will be observed throughout the world, and for those wishing to attend, allow time to arrive safely, due to the early hours these observances are held.  Many families will gather in their church of choice for the true reason we celebrate Easter, the miracle of Christ’s resurrection. 

Happy memories of  Easter Egg hunts come to mind for this grandmother.  The fun of watching my children and grandchildren hunt through the grass and yard for those colorful treasures was so much fun; however, it also reminds me of how hard it was for me to find those things!  My best friend would always have to share hers with me, because I usually came up with nothing!  (These were the hunts we had at school.) Thanks, Mackie!

If you are fortunate to get to spend time with family and friends during this long weekend, enjoy every minute of it.  If you find yourself spending time on a short trip, enjoy that, too.  Life is too short to waste on worries, instead, live every day as though it were your last. 

From all the folks at Texas America Safety Company, and Blog4Safety – Have a safe and happy Easter holiday.  pb

With quick returns on investment, robotic automation is no longer just for the large manufacturing companies. Automated systems make companies more competitive with high production rates, while keeping quality standards. Robots can take over the more mundane, tedious jobs freeing up highly skilled workers to focus on complex tasks. Along with expanded efficiency and productivity, robotic automation can also increase safety. 

Robotic automation automates more hazardous jobs, allowing workers to move into supervisory roles in the company. Rather than taking the necessary precautions to put people into hazardous situations, investing in robotic systems can save the cost of those provisions. These improvements to workplace safety can prove invaluable. 

The nature of robotic systems has not only increased safety, but also offers workers a better environment in the workplace. Instead of keeping people in low skill, labor positions, robotics have freed up the workplace to move valuable employees into higher skilled positions. These high-level positions also increase individual pay. However, this comes at no additional cost to the employer. Since one robot can do the same job that it may take up to ten employees to execute, the cost savings counteract any increase in paying highly skilled employees. 

Adding to the list of savings robotic automation offers, the increased safety robots give pays off in the long-term. When worker safety is improved, finances improve. Companies can save on costs in areas such as healthcare, insurance, and workers compensation. On top of that, properly programmed automated robots offer consistency in output, along with increased production speed. All of these factors can join to not only better the work environment for employees, but also help a company’s bottom line. 

Automation offers guaranteed results and a faster return on investment. For those companies that still may be on the fence about whether or not robotic will help your company grow — these systems have shown that they’re here to stay and have proven to be an all-encompassing win-win in modern manufacturing.

 “This particular article from Katie Netherton, a blogger and writer for an SEO and marketing company, shows that while there’s no arguing the cost benefits of robotic automation, time has also shown that these systems can make life better for employees.  Katie has a background in journalism and contributes articles for various newsletters and websites.”
