from the very same spot where it was known for three decades.

While the Filipinos continued to rebuild their lives post-war, CBK Hardware saw the opportunity

up CBK Hardware as one of its major suppliers. This further expanded into delivering quality

5 Tips for Improving

Warehouse Efficiency

With supply chain demands increasing by the day, the need to enhance warehouse

efficiency is also on the ride. Today’s customers demand speed; a whopping

92% of shoppers say shipping is a crucial factor in their purchase decision. This

means businesses have to improve their warehouse efficiency to satisfy these

expectations and remain competitive. Read on for five simple ways to make your warehouse

operations more efficient, and your business more reliable.

1. Invest in pallet racking

The use of pallets not only helps with the organization of the warehouse, but it simplifies shipping

as well. Pallets have been used for the better part of the past century and are now a shipping

gold standard among small and large businesses. If you are already using pallets, consider

investing in pallet racking for easier handling of products and better utilization of vertical

warehouse space. You can get your pallet racking from a reputable company such as Safety

Source, which guarantees not only quality products but also offers delivery and installation

services.

60


2. Keep it clean

Clutter in a warehouse is not an uncommon

sight. A lot goes on in a typical warehouse, and

keeping it clean may sometimes be challenging.

Dust and debris can damage product

packaging, potentially costing you extra time

and money. Boxes and other containers on the

floor may also impact movement and even cause

injuries, which can be disruptive to operations.

Avoid these prospects by implementing a strict

cleaning routine built with the warehouse’s

schedule in mind.

3. Label everything

Despite being around for decades, labeling

is an underrated way of simplifying product

identification and movement of goods both to

and from a warehouse. Labels can help you

speed up the loading and unloading processes

as workers won’t need to confirm with anyone

about packaged products before putting them

away.

4. Use a warehouse management system

Warehouse management systems are computer

applications used by warehouse managers

to view and control warehouse operations

from a single interface. A good WMS system

helps keep track of inventory movement and

can work with other systems within the supply

chain, including warehouse execution systems

and transportation management systems. You

should consider a WMS that has automation

and AI features if you are looking to reduce your

workload as well.

5. Reduce touchpoints

Keep the movement of goods in and out of

the warehouse smooth by reducing inventory

and order touchpoints. This simplification will

not only help free up the warehouse for more

inbound products but also minimize risks.

Proper segmentation and use of conveyor belts

and complementary warehousing equipment

can help facilitate this.

Endnote

These five tips are fundamental to improving

warehouse efficiency. By implementing them,

your facility will experience a tangible change

in operation speed and productivity. You might

also save some money in the process.

If Petroleum Engineering

Is Your Future, You’ve Got

to Work for It

If petroleum engineering is the future that you see for yourself, you need to make sure that

you are doing everything in your power to see your dream come true. There are a few things

that you are going to need in order to make this possible, and we’re going to be talking about

them in this article. As such, if you are interested in finding out how to secure engineering as

your future, keep reading down below.

Education

The first thing that we are going to mention is education. You are going to need the right level of

education if you want to go up in the industry, so you have got to dedicate yourself to learning

everything that you need to know. Of course, you will learn plenty more on the job over the

years, but we’re talking about the basics that you need to learn in a classroom. It’s true to say

that education isn’t for everyone, but you’re not going to get very far without it.

68


Don’t forget that you have got to be willing to do some things that you might not be the best at.

However, you have got to be able to show that you have this knowledge and most companies

ask for some kind of certificate of education.

Job

The next thing that you are going to need is a job. We know that the job market is competitive

which is why it can be difficult to secure one of these at the moment. Seeing as this is a highlyskilled

trade you are going to be competing against people who are as dedicated as you are

to the job. You need to make yourself the most attractive candidate which sometimes means

you need a little more than knowledge about engineering specifically. An example of this

would be if you had a sharp business mind, and when they ask if you have anything to add,

you can wow them with it. Suggest making your company dormant or one of the companies

they own, and whatever else you can come up with. Make sure that your suggestions are

relevant though, otherwise this will go against you.

Passion

The final thing that you are going to need to have is passion. Passion is the driving force

behind everything. It’s the thing that makes you love engineering. It’s the thing that means that

you will keep going despite anything else that comes your way, and it’s the thing that means

you love what you do. Without passion, you’re not going to get very far at all.

We hope that you have found this article helpful, and now see some of the things that you

have got to do if engineering is your future. There are so many factors that will come together

and work in your favor if you are persistent enough with them, and give it everything that you

have got. We wish you the very best of luck, and hope that you get your future in engineering

sooner than you thought.

An Employee Was Injured

Onsite, Now What?

Imagine walking into work and seeing one of your worst nightmares unfolding in front

of your eyes: one of your employees is injured, and it looks serious. As the business

owner, you spring into action, ensuring that an ambulance has been called and that

all other employees are safe. After the chaos dies down, you’re left to wonder—

what happens next?

To prepare for such scenarios, employers should learn more about the workers comp

settlement process and the specific provisions of their workers’ comp insurance

policy.

Breaking Down Workers’ Comp Coverage

This form of insurance is required for businesses in every U.S. state besides Texas.

Depending on where your company operates, you may have the option to purchase

a policy from a private insurance provider. Some states, however, require companies

to invest in coverage from a state fund.

72


When workplace incidents occur, workers’ comp covers the

following:

• Medical expenses related to a workplace injury or illness

• A portion of the wages lost by the employee due to their injury and recovery time

• Compensation for any permanent injuries

• The cost of retraining

• In the case of a workplace fatality, benefits to their survivors

• Some policies may also cover the employer’s legal fees or a portion of settlement

should the employee reject the workers’ comp compensation package.

After a workplace injury occurs and the injured employee has received care, the

compensation process begins:

Step 1: The Employee Files a Claim

If an onsite or work-related accident results in an injury, the injured employee must

report it to their employer.

Once the employer is informed about the injury or illness, the employee has suffered,

they will issue the appropriate forms. The paperwork includes forms that will be issued to

the company’s insurance provider and the state’s compensation board. The documents

also include information about the employee’s rights and the benefits the compensation

provides.

Under what circumstances can an employee file a claim? For a worker to claim compensation

under this coverage, the following criteria must be met:

• The worker in question is an employee of the company, not a hired contractor.

• The injury or illness in question was suffered while on duty. The activity taking place when

the injury occurred must be clearly within the scope of their work-related tasks. These can

be activities that were being done offsite.

• The employer must have a workers’ comp policy.

Step 2: The Insurance Provider Responds

Once the paperwork is completed, the forms, along with a medical report from the employee’s

doctor, are sent to the insurance provider. Based on the information provided, the insurer

will decide whether to honor the claim or deny it. If a claim is denied, the employee can

pursue an appeal.


Each state has a different policy for how workers’ comp benefits are calculated. In general,

the compensation packages include payment for:

• Temporary total disability

• Temporary partial disability

• Permanent disability

• Reimbursement of medical expenses

Step 3: The Employee Accepts or Rejects the Insurance Offer

In most cases, the injured employee will accept the compensation package offered by the

insurance provider. However, if an employee feels that the compensation is inadequate,

they have the right to pursue a settlement from the employer. Their options include:

• Accepting the compensation offer as-is

• Negotiating a more substantial structured compensation- If the employee feels the value

of the compensation package offered will not adequately cover their medical care or their

loss of income, they can attempt to negotiate a payment plan with the employer.

• Negotiating a lump sum payoff- The employee can choose to pursue a one-off settlement

with the employer. This lump sum would include an estimation of total medical expenses

and disability payments.

If the two parties formally agree on a deal, the case is closed and cannot be revisited.

Protection for You, and Your Employees

Workplace injuries are unfortunate and difficult to deal with; however, they are not uncommon.

While you may not want to think of this reality, as an employer, it’s your responsibility to

prevent workplace injury, provide workers’ comp coverage, and to respond appropriately

should an accident occur.

Fortunately, workers’ compensation insurance provides a clear path forward when injuries

happen. The design of workers’ comp coverage is twofold: it protects employees by

guaranteeing compensation and care, and it protects employers from financial ruin should

a costly accident arise.

To secure the well-being of your business and employees, be sure to regularly review your

workers’ comp policy and consider an upgrade.

Engineering Careers:

Coping with On the Job

Travel

For professional engineers, visiting all sorts of sites and locations worldwide can

be a regular fixture of their job. In fact, some end up spending so much time away

from home that they abandon having a central base of actions altogether. However,

as anyone that is regularly away from home will tell you, on the job travel can be

draining. The good news is that there are some smart tactics you can use to make the

experience go as smoothly as possible. Therefore, ensuring you are well-rested enough to

supply the accuracy and good judgment that working as an engineer requires.

Choose a carry on only.

It may seem simple, but opting to cake just a carry on can save you a great deal of time

and hassle when travelling by plane for work. In fact, it means that you don’t have to check

in your luggage beforehand. Also, you won’t have to suffer through the long wait until the

80


baggage carousel springs into motion once your flight is over. Therefore allowing you to meet

your clients or make your transport link to the sites on which you will be working much more

quickly and efficiently.

<iframe width=”560” height=”315” src=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/OabjhyvBe6w”

frameborder=”0” allow=”accelerometer; autoplay; encrypted-media; gyroscope; picture-inpicture”

allowfullscreen></iframe>

You can also be sure that any valuable equipment or necessary plans and blueprints that you

are carrying are safe. After all, apart from a brief jaunt through the x-ray machine will remain

with you at all times.

Stay organised and in contact.

Next, if you find yourself travelling from one location to the next, it can be tough to stay in

contact with your clients and customers. Not to mention your nearest and dearest. In fact,

combine this with a situation where a client needs to send physical documents, and you can

have a real problem if you have no single physical base of operations.

Luckily, there is a tactic that you can use to work around such an issue. Is it to use a service

like the one physicaladdress offers. This is because it allows real-life mail to be sent to one

professional address. Then the contents are digitally scanned and forwarded to you online.

This means that no matter where your engineering work takes you, you can be sure you won’t

miss any critical client correspondence. In turn, that means you won’t have to deal with the

delay in projects that this can cause, either.

Opt for an upgrade where possible.

When it comes to engineering as a career, to operate effectively, you must be well-rested

enough to be accurate in your measurements and calculations. You also need to be alert

enough to truly hear what your client is saying to you concerning the problems you need to

solve.

Of course, being stuck on a cramped, a noisy, long haul flight isn’t conducive to these states in

any way. That is why, wherever possible, it’s best to upgrade to business class. At least then,

you will have the facilities to hand that you need to get a decent rest. Thus allowing you to be

on top of your game, as you touch down in your next location.

5 Tips for When You

Marry Military Engineer

Marrying someone in the military

means making sacrifices that a

traditional married person might

not have to make. That might

mean moving around a lot and being home

by yourself or with the children for months

at a time. Finding ways to cope with being a

military engineer spouse can help make the

transition from civilian life a little bit easier.

Here are five tips to take into consideration

when you marry someone in the military.

1. Learn to Cope During

Deployment Periods

You may have to go months without seeing

your spouse during deployment, so consider

how you’ll manage your home, bills and other

responsibilities on your own. You might be

living far away from your family, so you’ll have

to get used to doing things on your own, such

as cleaning the house, doing the laundry and

taking care of the children. On the plus side,

you’ll be able to enjoy military benefits, such

as military engineer pay, military engineer

spouse and family healthcare, a basic

allowance for housing (BAH), recreation

benefits and childcare benefits.

2. Get Used to Moving Around

It’s a well-known fact that military families

often move around a lot, which can be quite

a challenge, especially if you have children.

84


You’ll have to deal with helping them transition

from school to school and making new friends

all over again. You might get homesick when

moving to a new place, but on the positive

side of things, you’ll get to experience

different parts of the country (or maybe even

the world), which could mean you’ll always

have an interesting story to tell. Try to find the

silver lining and keep an open mind whenever

you move to a new place.

3. Find the Right Insurance

Coverage

The last thing you want is to break down on the

side of the road when your spouse and family

are miles away and can’t do anything to help

you, especially if you have your little ones in

the car with you. That’s why finding the right

insurance coverage is of utmost importance.

With USAA, you’ll get a comprehensive auto

insurance policy that saves you hundreds

of dollars each year compared to other

providers. You’ll also get accident forgiveness

and plenty of options based on your vehicle

and your driving record. You can also bundle

your homeowner’s or renter’s insurance to

save up to 10 percent.

4. Get Help Raising Your Family

Raising children in the military is different than

raising children in civilian life. You’ll have to

explain why your spouse is gone so often,

which might not be easy, depending on how

old your children are. You’ll also have the bulk

of parental responsibilities. Not to mention,

you’ll also have to deal with disciplining them

on your own and making sure their emotional

needs are met. You’ll be responsible for

teaching your children right from wrong and

how to care for themselves as they grow. All of

this can be overwhelming, especially during

deployment when the sole responsibility falls

in your lap. Get the help you need from family

members (if possible) or outside help from a

nanny using your military engineer benefits.

5. Continue to Pursue Your Own

Interests

Make time to get out and meet new people,

because being a military engineer spouse can

be lonely sometimes. Find your own interests

and hobbies to pursue so that you don’t

spend all of your time waiting for your spouse

to get back. It’s perfectly okay to have a life

of your own while your spouse is deployed.

Whether you decide to join a book club, learn

to play an instrument, take a writing class or

join an improv class, you can find something

that interests you outside of your marriage.

Get someone to watch the children at least

once a week so that you can take some time

for yourself to do what you enjoy doing.

Adjusting to Life as a Military

Engineer Spouse

Marrying someone in the military doesn’t mean

you’ll always be alone. It just means making

certain life adjustments. You’ll get to make

new friends all over the world, learn about

different cultures and enjoy all of the benefits

that come with being a military spouse. You’ll

also learn to be more independent and be

more inclined to pursue outside interests.

Marrying military also means finding ways to

care for and protect your loved ones, whether

that means hiring help or finding the right auto

insurance.

What is Operational

Definition

If you’re someone who is constantly working in quantifying different kinds of data, then

you’re going to want to know what operational definition is.

In essence, when the phrase “operational definition” is used in terms of data, it refers to a

concise and thorough definition of the measurement. To better explain this, it means that all

parts of your data collection will be explicitly explained.

Operational definition can be used for collecting a wide variety of data points and it can be

essential for knowing the true metrics of the data points. Operational definition can be most

usefill when there is a dispute after the data is collected about whether or not all of the data

points were collected correctly. It can even be used for visual data points and it can help with

visual checks if multiple data collectors are arguing about any points of confusion.

Operational definition is most helpful when it is fully outlined before any of the data collection

begins. Then there will be no confusion amongst team members about what data points

count for what.

When Can Operational Definition Be Used?

Operational definition can be used almost anytime that data is going to be collected. It will

save researchers a significant amount of time in the long run since everyone will be on the

88


same page from the very beginning. It will also ensure that the results that come back from all of

the tests are accurate.

It is extremely important that the operational definition be as detailed as possible because everyone

has a different perception of the world, including each of your researchers. To avoid confusion,

you’ll want to make the instructions as detailed as humanly possible.

There are six key points to include in your operational definition to ensure that your instructions

are clear.

Steps To Create the Perfect Operational Definition

1) Determine What the Test Is Revolving Around

Your team will need to know what characteristic is being measured.

2) Select Your Measuring Instrument

The measuring instrument that you choose can be something physical such as a scale to measure

weight or a clock to determine the amount of time that has passed. However, the measuring

instrument can also be a visual test. If you’re ever going to use eyesight as the measuring tool of

choice, you’ll want to express if normal eyesight will work or if a magnifying glass will be needed

as well.

3) Explicitly Explain The Testing Method

This is the part where the actual test will be explained in depth so your researchers are fully aware

of what is going on. You’ll want to explain what measurements the tests are taking place in as well.

4) State How Decisions Should Be Made

Tell all of your researchers what they should be determining at the end of the test and how they

should be determining it. If this isn’t clearly defined, then the test won’t bring about accurate results.

5) Check That Your Researchers Understand The Operational Definition

Once you have all the other metrics in place, check with your researchers to make sure that they

understand all of the metrics as they should be taking place.

How to Choose Durable

Brown Work Boots Online

Work boots have been used for ages by various professionals mainly, outdoor

workers, laborers and farmers. Though the markets today are flooded with fancy

options, classic sturdy work boots have their takers. A good pair of boots is a

must-have for every stylish man. These stylish and versatile boots can be paired

with your semi-casual as well as casual wardrobe. If you’re looking for a comfortable pair of

shoes that’ll work well for an outdoor job and also look classy when dressed up, we’ve got you

covered. You can buy brown work boots online here.

Functional work boots today are not only used for outdoor work but can be paired with jeans and

a T-shirt for a casual look. To pick out your favorite pair of work boots, follow these suggestions

given below.

Tips on Choosing the Right Durable Brown Work Boots Online

1. Types of Work Boots: You can choose from the main types of work boots; lace up and pull

on work boots. Lace up boots give more support to the feet and the fit can be adjusted through

the lace. Pull on boots don’t have laces and are mostly waterproof. They are used by outdoor

workers like welders, construction workers and firefighters.

2. Good Quality: Since work boots never go out of style, buying a good quality and durable

pair of work boots can be a good investment. While choosing, look for the material of its

composition. Leather boots are extremely durable and since they tend to take on the shape

92


of your feet, they are very comfortable too. For

best quality, go for the full grain leather boots.

These can be identified by their grainy, rugged

texture. Full grain leather is stronger and is likely

to last you for years to come. The craftsmanship

is another important factor that determines the

quality of boots. A well-crafted pair of shoes

tend to last longer.

3. Check the Soles: While buying work boots,

ensure that your shoes are well cushioned and

your feet are pain-free as you work through your

day. Look for cement constructed boots for

improved shelf life. Most work boots come with

replaceable insoles. A good arch supporting

insole not only keeps you comfortable but also

protects you from knee and joint pains. Outdoor

workers should opt for slip resistant soles to

avoid slipping in work areas.

4. Look out for the safety features: Given that

work boots are mostly worn by men who work

outdoors like engineers on a construction site,

most of them come with various safety features

like steel caps to provide safety. Features like

an anti-slip sole, water resistance and electric

shock resistance are some of the sought-after

features to look out. Choose a pair that provides

good protection to your feet.

5. Comfort: Comfort is one of the most important

things to look for, while buying work boots. Since

work boots may take a while to break in and fit

smoothly, to ensure maximum comfort, find a

work boot that fits you well. To buy the correct

fit online, measure your foot size in centimeters

and then match it to the size chart. In case, one

foot of yours is slightly bigger than the other, go

for the larger foot size. For a comfortable fit, the

toe cap should fit well and your arches should

be comfortable. Lace boots provide better foot

support and are easily adjustable.

Styling your Work Boots

Once worn primarily by workers, these chunky

boots have been fashionably adopted by

suave, fashion forward men. Most work boots

are versatile and can be styled in various ways.

Pair your tan work boots with heavy selvedge

denim for a casual look. Since these boots are

masculine, they go well with military inspired

jackets, flannel shirts and jumpers. Work boots

have a rugged look and shouldn’t be paired with

formals like formal trousers.

Conclusion

A good pair of work boots is durable and can

be used for ages. While buying a new pair,

look out for the quality of the material and its

craftsmanship to ensure you buy pair that stays.

Since work boots often take a while to break in,

it’s advisable to wear thick socks with it to avoid

discomfort and blisters. As work boots are low

maintenance, they just require cleaning once

in a while. When dirty, dust them off with a dry

piece of cloth.

Finally, if you plan to buy durable work boots

online, don’t just go for what looks good.

Additionally, make sure you know the material

composition, the type of sole, the safety features

and most importantly it fits you well!

Top 5 Things to Do

After an Accident

The aftermath of a car accident ranges from emotional to outright traumatic.

There’s a lot of adrenaline flowing, and that’s true even if no one is seriously

hurt. That’s why you need to know now what to do if you’re in a car wreck.

Here are the top 5 things to do after an auto accident. We’ll also explain

why these actions matter so much.

Check for Injuries

Once you’ve stopped, start checking yourself and others for injuries. If it is safe

to do so, check those in the other car for injuries. If anyone is seriously injured,

call 911 and request an ambulance. If it is necessary, you may need to get to

safety. For example, a car that’s been thrown into ongoing traffic may get hit

again. If you can, move the car out of the way of oncoming vehicles. However,

that’s a lower priority than taking care of anyone who is hurt.

96


Document As Much As Possible Yourself

Don’t leave everything in the hands of the police. Take pictures of your car

from all sides. Take pictures of their car, as well. Don’t forget to get a picture

of their license plate in case they give you false information or are driving

someone else’s car. Take a picture of their driver’s license and insurance card,

because this is probably more accurate than hand-written notes. Capture the

current road conditions, in case this is relevant to determining fault later. Take

pictures of cross-streets to prove where you were. Ask everyone involved for

their contact information, in case you need them to make witness statements

later.

A side benefit of documenting all of this yourself is that it ensures you have

this information in case the other person leaves before a police report can be

made.

Call the Police

In some states, you’re required to report any accident, including fender benders,

to the police. This allows them to fill out an accident report and document the

scene. In the rest of the country, you want the police report so that you have a

neutral third party account of the accident. Furthermore, only a police officer

can prove one of the parties is drunk or otherwise in violation of the law. If

the police decide not to come out, you’ve already documented as much as

possible.

Wait for Help

Always wait until everyone’s needs have been tended to. Do not leave after

calling for an ambulance. You’re legally required to stay until first responders

have arrived take care of the injured. If you have asked police to come out, you

can’t leave even if you think you’re not at fault.

When the police arrive, get their names and badge numbers. Try to get a copy

of the police report. If that’s not possible, find out the police report number.

Your insurance company may ask for that information when you file the claim.

Notify Your Insurer

Notifying your insurer is among the last things to do after an accident. You

could call them while you’re at the accident scene. They may be able to tell

you what information they need to speed up the claims process. Or they could

explain the claims process to you. This could help you pass the time while

waiting for help to arrive.
