Tech Tip: A Step in the Right Direction

FootwearCollageAt Nelson-Jameson, we often get questions from customers asking about how to find the right size when ordering boots for female employees. For those not familiar, industrial/work boots are generally sold only in men’s sizes. Hence, things can start off on the wrong foot for buyers hoping to find their employees the right footwear.

Though some variance does occur among manufacturers and among different kinds of footwear styles, a general rule to consider is:“ women can find the right boot by subtracting two.” For example, a U.S. Women’s 8 generally converts to a U.S. Men’s 6. In our experience, this works well for ordering both boots and inserts.

If you have any questions though, don’t hesitate to call us and we’ll “walk” you through the process to help you find the perfect pair of boots for you or your employees! To see our complete collection of footwear, click here.

Don’t Get Pinned Down By Norovirus This Winter

graphic_970pxThe June issue of the CDC’s Vital Signs discusses the disturbing fact, that when it comes to norovirus: “…the amount of virus particles that fit on the head of a pin would be enough to infect more than 1000 people.” Not only that, but this tough contender can withstand freezing, as well as temperatures up to 140˚F; it causes 19-21 million illnesses in the United States alone; and it holds the championship belt for being the “most common cause of foodborne-disease outbreaks in the United States”!

However, norovirus does not have to prevail this winter (a time when the illness frequently shows up). One simple, but very effective treatment is out there that can limit the spread of norovirus: hand-washing. Though it may be common knowledge for folks working in the food industry, it’s good for us to take a step back and remind ourselves of the significant responsibility we play in preventing the spread of norovirus. A massive 70% of contaminated (norovirus) food outbreaks are caused by infected food workers. With the virus’s ability to live and thrive in numerous environments, hand-washing is our best way to say “no” to norovirus all year long.

…and Nelson-Jameson is here to do our part!   That’s why we have compiled a wide line of hand hygiene products meant to take on the challenge.  Our selection of soaps, signage, hand dryers, and towels are there to assist in the struggle to contain this formidable opponent.  We even offer Glo-Germ products, meant to help in training/demonstrating proper hand-washing techniques to employees.   Call us for more information or to get a copy of our “Hand Hygiene Products” catalog.

To check out more about the importance of hand-washing, check out this site from the CDC concerning how “Clean Hands Save Lives,” or our Learning Center article on Hand Hygiene.

Tech Tip: Ice Melt Application Tips

janitorialsanitation.jpg.231x299_q85_crop_upscale

Icy sidewalks and driveways will be here soon. Here are some helpful tips to remember when using ice melt this winter.

Use it!
Whether it is in an effort to save money or time, skipping ice melt means that you are setting yourself up for  slippery sidewalks, entryways and parking lots. This could be an expensive mistake for your company.

Don’t use too much
Evenly spread application is essential for optimal melt. Applying ice melt using a spreader ensures even application, while scoops and shovels are most common, they can cause overuse or piling in areas.

Know when to apply
Todd Spencer, former National Sales Manager for North American Salt, is quoted saying “pre-application is ideal as an initial deterrent before the snow falls, though it is often difficult to predict necessity.” Ice melt must be applied on the ground/ice for it to be effective, not on a pile of snow.

For more information on ice melt products available at Nelson-Jameson call 800-826-8302 or visit our website.
