New Near Miss Analysis Resource Available on Website
A near miss is an unplanned event that did not result in injury, illness, or damage — but had the potential to do so. Employees are often trained to work "safely," but are not trained to identify near misses or made aware of the positive impact near miss reporting can have to ensure employees are engaged in their operations. Now on the Responsible Distribution Resources page you can view actual near miss examples submitted by NACD members confidentially for the purpose of providing lessons learned for an improved chemical industry.

    Why You should Never Lose Your Identity When Recruiting
    What makes a recruiter stand out: It's a culmination of their personal experiences, intellect, intuition and what made them who they are today. Aristotle said, "Knowing yourself is the beginning of all wisdom." Recruiting is not a transaction. The military teaches that attention to detail is critical in all actions performed. This is where the wheat is separated for the chaff. If a seasoned recruiter doesn't see a full, professional representation on a resume — it speaks a lot of the candidate. If the skill set is essential, maybe it is a matter of spending some time with the candidate to educate them on the importance of a well-defined resume.

    Smart Hustle Magazine via Mediaplanet
    Think back 20 years ago. Before the Internet, social media and mobile marketing was popular. Running a business was different; starting a business was much different. You had to rely on local marketing, phone calls and plane rides to expand your business. Today, thanks to the Internet and the rise of social networks, a very small home-based business in Indiana can compete just as effectively as a 120-person business in downtown Los Angeles.
