6 Ways to Boost Occupational Health in Construction

Article | April 7, 2020

Creating homes and structures from scratch is a rewarding career path for many. However, working in construction has unique risks and stressors. Exposure to harmful chemicals, constant loud noise, handling heavy loads, and potential hazards such as falling from a high place or electric shocks are among the daily risks for millions who work on construction sites. Hence, construction is the sector with one of the highest rates of fatal workplace accidents, according to the International Labor Organization. The organization estimates that 2.3 million workers around the world lose their lives to work-related accidents and illnesses every year.

3 IMPORTANT STEPS TO REVERSE ENGINEERING A PART

Article | April 8, 2021

Over the past 120 years, there has been a production of millions of machine parts and products worldwide. However, few of these products are still relevant over the years because of the technological advancement, but lots of old parts used in machines are still in use. When a part breaks down or malfunctions, it is usually replaced using a process known as reverse engineering. There are many things that can be learned from a machine or software, just from reverse engineering. This is because the concept behind the reverse engineering process is to break something down to help understand it, and the engineer can then build a copy or try to improve it. Furthermore, there is a need for a reverse engineering design process as the technology advances to ensure the existing manufacturing systems’ continuity. Reverse engineering is an important process for everybody as we will be forced to replace entire machines without it. In this article, we will break down everything you need to know about reverse engineering, from reverse engineering to reverse engineering processes.

How electricity REALLY works

Article | April 2, 2020

If electricity is a mystery to you, this is the explanation you have been looking for. My dad has been studying this matter for years now. He has no formal education in electrical engineering, but in the fine tradition of natural science and philosophers of old, he has spent many hours observing nature and here is his explanation of electricity. Electricity comes from lightning. Ben Franklin’s first experiment with electricity was flying a kite in a lightning storm.
