The Break Room: Oh Yeah … I’m on a Roof

Laura Walter, Senior Editor Years ago, before I joined EHS Today or had any involvement in the occupational safety world, I worked in another organization’s communications department. My duties included documenting, through articles and photographs, the construction of a new building next to our headquarters. With limited equipment and ability (let’s face it, that college photography course did not make me a skilled professional), I had a difficult time taking decent pictures of the building – or at least until I discovered the roof. By taking the staircase located near my top-floor  office, I could pop onto the roof and have a much better view of the construction […]

Sandy Says: Wellness…What??!

Sandy Smith, Editor-in-Chief There’s an old saying that goes something like this: “A minute on the lips, a lifetime on the hips.” Can the same be said of the lip service paid to employee health and wellness programs at some companies? A few months ago, some employees in our office agreed to participate in a fitness pilot project. It involved wearing a fitness tracker that measures “steps.” A group goal was set – to “walk” the distance to our Colorado office – and a prize was promised if the goal was met. The goal was blown out of the water but no prize materialized. A second round of […]

This Is Your Brain on Leadership

Not all leaders – or all leaders’ brains – are created equal. New research suggests that effective leaders have brains that are “wired” to lead. Furthermore, the brains of adaptable leaders function differently from those of less adaptable leaders. The study, which focused on 103 U.S. Army officers ranging in rank from officer cadet to major, linked adaptive leadership skills with brain functioning and psychological complexity measures among active leaders. Researchers say this fusion of neuroscience and leadership research could one day revolutionize how organizations assess and develop effective and adaptive leaders. “Once we have confirmed how the brain works in these leaders, we can create an ‘expert’ profile,” said […]

Bluman provides live video backdrop for Whitesnake arena tour

Whitesnake 2013 tour Bluman Associates provided the technical production for the video for the whole tour and designed all the content in-house, following the creation of the company’s design department earlier in 2013. A 40 x 20ft backdrop was the canvas for the projection. This also hid the videowall set up that co-headliner and fellow rock legends Journey were using for their set, making the quick turn-around between acts possible through a simple reveal. Bluman Associates used three Barco 40K projectors to create the backdrop, operated by projectionist Andy Joyes, whose previous accolades have included head of projection for the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics.

Outdated Govt regulations on ICT leasing contracts are costing schools £100m

Paul Milligan, June 3, 2013 Be the first to comment on this article Schools in England are wasting millions of pounds each year on expensive ICT leasing contracts because of outdated Government leasing regulations, according to the British Educational Suppliers Association (BESA) which is calling for the introduction of new leasing guidance in time for the introduction of the new National Curriculum in September 2014. It believes that current guidelines are preventing headteachers from signing up for best value-for-money finance leases, and forcing them to opt for more expensive operating leases.

Christie projectors support BBC’s paintings project in 30 sites across UK on same day

Projection at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall The job, by Keyteq, used 15,000 lumens Christie LX1500 projectors at every site. The exception was at Norwich Castle where the company used two stacked Christie Roadster S+20Ks (20,000 lumens) to deliver a 25-metre image on to the castle walls over a 70-metre throw distance. The other venues ranged from Hull’s Maritime Museum to London’s National Gallery. The brief for each event was that it needed to look like a guerilla projection, so it wasn’t to be pixel-mapped or look overly polished. Logistically, the exercise for the BBC was conceived as a series of single-crew projections depicting 10-12 paintings on to the surfaces during […]
