    As a plant owner or designer you will logically try to keep construction costs down wherever possible. So noise control features can easily be sidelined as an “optional extra” to be added later if the need arises. You might also be confident a new industrial plant will comply with all regulations on completion, but that doesn’t mean a future neighbour won’t complain about ...

  • Toe protection overshoes make headlines with new materials and designs

    Long considered the 'ugly duckling' of the safety footwear business, the safety toe overshoe developed from the venerable galosh has a new lease on life. To be fair, there have been some pretty ugly ones and even some that were downright dangerous. However, the ‘gumshoe’ has come a long way since African-American inventor Alvin Longo Rickman first patented an overshoe in 1898. Over the last 109 ...

  • Plume Control under a City Building

    Subsurface remediation in a big city setting is complicated. Limited work space, heavy traffic, noise restrictions, and a dense network of utilities are just some of the factors that conspire to make the installation of any in situ plume control or plume reduction system a seemingly unsolvable logistical puzzle. Horizontal wells placed directly beneath a building can provide protection from soil ...

  • Good Manufacturing Procedures - `GMP`.

    I get excited every time I discover another use for safetytoes. Since I brought the ‘Slipp-R’ to market in 2006 I have been working hard to raise awareness for safetytoe overshoes. Often it’s the style and wear-ability factors that detract from good safety practices but also it’s just lack of awareness that puts visitors and others at risk where toe protection is sought. The ‘Slipp-R’ was put ...
