    Grounding your tank truck correctly.

    Loading and unloading tank trucks with large quantities of commonly used chemicals and powders generates static electricity which, if left to accumulate could discharge electrostatic sparks, potentially causing fires and explosions. Newson Gale’s Earth-Rite® RTR is the most reliable and precise method of grounding tank trucks today.

    Don't Do It: 5 Costly Hiring Mistakes Employers Are Making
    HR Morning
    Some analysts are predicting 2015 will be a big year for hiring. That's good news. But the bad news is some employers have glaring holes in their hiring processes.

    Are You Asking the Right Questions?
    The least appreciated and most valuable skill is asking the right questions. Without this skill, you will waste your time solving the wrong problems. Unfortunately, question askers are often viewed with derision. You schedule a quick 20-minute meeting to verify the budget numbers for next quarter, and some annoying question asker asks, "How much longer can our business survive by shipping outdated, overpriced products?" What an idiot, you think. Except he is asking precisely the question you should be asking. You are annoyed because you set aside twenty minutes to preserve the status quo, rather than an extended period to set your business up for 10 years of profitable growth.

    4 Ways For Millennial Women To Prepare For Leadership Roles
    Fast Company
    Coming of age for working women in the "lean-in" era isn't easy. For millennial women (those born between 1980 and 1994), life and work are blended.

Meanwhile, businesses expect more work for less pay, and parenting challenges are leading many women to take more time off work.

    Stop Checking Your Email
    By Candice Gottlieb-Clark
    I mentioned to a colleague my desire to have a day of work — when everything else is on hold — so I could feel caught up. He laughed and expressed a shared interest in that "extra" time. I started wondering: If everyone is feeling overextended, why does no one have a handle on what's causing it? This feeling exists because we never stop working. We leave the office, but take our smartphone. We check messages, respond and review late into the evening and first thing in the morning.
