If you’ve ever thought of becoming a lion tamer, then you’ll most likely have found that you didn’t entertain the idea for long before you came to your senses. Working as a lion tamer might well be an exciting and exhilarating way to win your bread, but unfortunately it is also very much a dangerous one and one that could easily see you injuring yourself. If nothing else, your health insurance would be through the roof.

Thus you probably put that idea to one side and instead took up a more normal job working in an office, or a shop or working in construction. The only catch? All those jobs have dangers too. And yes, that even includes office work. Read on to learn why you are never completely safe from harm no matter what line of work you are in…

Office Jobs

different jobs different dangers they1 Different Jobs And The Different Dangers They Represent

Office jobs might seem rather static and mundane, which may then lead you to presume that they’re also very safe. The surprising part here though, is that it’s their very static nature that makes them potentially dangerous. Not moving is always going to be bad for you if it means staying in one position too long, and particularly if that position is one where you’re hunched over a desk. On top of that you have the danger of RSI from typing and of eyestrain.

The solution? Take regular breaks, make sure you are sitting comfortably and invest in a good desk set up.

Driving

There are countless jobs that involve driving in some capacity, and even office jobs from time to time will require you to drive to a business meeting, to a tradeshow, or just out to pick up milk. While it would be wrong to say that this was very dangerous, it still means you’ll be regularly travelling at high speeds and potentially at risk of crashing or having some other kind of accident. Make sure to drive safely, and maybe ask your boss to send you on a course. Oh, and never rush…

Construction

In construction there are many more things that can go wrong and many ways you can cause yourself or others harm – from machinery that goes wrong, to lifting things incorrectly, to getting in the way of traffic. The solution is to invest in workzone safety, through signs and traffic cones and by making sure that the site is always tidy and well maintained.

Working in a shop can’t be dangerous right? After all, you probably started when you were 16… Again though, there are a number of potential risks that you might not have considered. Working with the general public for instance can create a risk right away (if you get a drunken or violent customer for instance), while stacking shelves and cleaning isles can also lead to falls and problems. Make sure that the store has CCTV, that there’s always at least two people around, and that the layout conforms to health and safety regulations…

The Three Different Types Of In-Ground Swimming Pools

The Three Different Types Of In-Ground Swimming Pools

three different types inground swimming The Three Different Types Of In Ground Swimming Pools

There can’t be any greater feeling than coming home after a long day at work, stripping off, putting on your swimming costume, and then diving into the swimming pool that is located in your own backyard. Admittedly, owning a swimming pool is nothing more than a pipe dream for many, and something that is typically associated with the rich and famous. However, in the modern day and age, many households have completely transformed their backyards with the addition of an in-ground swimming pool… and without breaking the bank. Owning an in-ground swimming pool is now far more of a reality for most and you can have some great fun deciding on the type of pool and design that you want. This post will introduce you to the 3 types of in-ground pools that are available.

Concrete (Gunite) Pools

If you are looking at a particular type of design, or something a little out of the ordinary, then you’ll find that a concrete swimming pool will offer you the most flexibility. Concrete swimming pools can be built into whatever shape suits you, whether you are looking for a traditional design of pool, or whether you have a weird shaped backyard, and would like a swimming pool designed to fit in, without looking out of place. You will have the best opportunity to custom design your swimming pool by using the material, gunite, which should help to get those creative juices flowing. This type of swimming pool could take anywhere up to 3 months to build.

Vinyl Pools

If cost is an issue for your in-ground swimming pool then you may be best off going with vinyl for material. Not only does this provide you with the least expensive option, vinyl pools will take far less work to build and install and are typically pre-engineered. With that being said, don’t believe that your choice will be limited, in terms of design, as there are literally dozens and dozens of pre-made vinyl swimming pool designs for you to choose from. You will find the classic swimming pool shape, as well as a pool that has numerous curves and other shapes, which are easy on the eye. You will also find that vinyl pools are far more durable than most people believe, and you’ll be pleased to hear that you could have a pool built and installed in approximately 3 weeks.

Fibreglass Pools

Fibreglass pools, much like their vinyl counterparts, will come in a pre-designed and pre-built shape. However, you will still have plenty of choice when it comes to style and shape. The surface of a fibreglass pool is also great at ensuring that algae won’t stick to it, thus meaning that it will be extremely easy to clean and maintain. Due to the fact that the pool will be pre-designed and built, installation could take as little as a week, although a more likely scenario would be 10 days to 3 weeks.

Owning an in-ground swimming pool in your backyard is something that many of use dream about. Admittedly, due to your location you may need to consider the weather, as you won’t have access to a retractable pool enclosure, although it would be great if someone would eventually design one just for backyard entertainment.
