Finding Balance With the Race Car Litmus Test

Sustaining high personal performance over time requires a balanced life. Much like the way the four wheels of a Daytona 500 race car can make or break the race, if just one of your “wheels” becomes disproportionate to the others, a breakdown is inevitable that can sabotage your success. So how can you ensure a smooth ride? Like the pit stops that quickly assess the condition of a race car and restore balance, you and your pit crew can consistently check in on yourselves and each other to ensure optimal performance — first, by identifying the specific priorities that your speed (productivity), safety (well-being) and results (progress) hinge on. Top leaders and high-value individuals earn and maintain their track record by investing equal effort and time into four main priorities of everyday life. At least once a month, ask yourself these questions: Are you doing the best work of your career? Pushing yourself every day to grow and improve is not only personally rewarding, it can in..

Way to go to Wash, Rinse, Sanitize.

Proper washing and sanitizing of food equipment, includes dishes, tableware, pots & pans, cutting boards… yes, anything that food touches. Improper cleaning and sanitizing is an important process that helps prevent food borne illnesses. Dishes from the dining room that will go thru a dish machine need to be scrapped of food and trash, then pre-rinse the loose debris off the dishes. If kitchen equipment also goes thru the dish machine, they need to be scrubbed of all debris, then rinsed off. Load the racks. Do not overload the racks, cram as many plates in as possible or pile dishes and pots in such a way that the spraying action is blocked from top or bottom. Make sure there is ample room for the water to do its thing. Once the machine has finished its cycle, pull out the rack. One note at this point – the person loading the dishes, if taking the dishes out as well, needs to wash their hands before handling the cleaned dishes. If there is a person dedicated to taking out dishes, they..

Getting your workers to buy in with workplace safety

By Chad Lindsey, DTRIC Insurance Risk Consulting Manager The health and safety of your employees and customers should always be your main priority. Keeping your staff safe helps best maintain their physical and mental well-being, and upholds worker morale. And a safe business operation protects the reputation of your livelihood. Work-related accidents also affect the financial bottom line of your business. Protecting people from on-site injuries reduces any loss time in work attendance and productivity at your business. Since potential accidents can involve both employees and customers, insurance coverage for your commercial business can end up being one of the biggest costs. That’s why it’s important to prevent work accident injuries to help lower those costs. The first step to implementing a successful workplace safety plan is getting your staff involved and buying in to that strategy. To assist with that, DTRIC Insurance came up with a process that we call A.I.M. – Analysis, In..

Love and Mino’aka: How Oral Health Affects Your Love Life – by Hawaii Dental...

As oral health advocates, we find it difficult to maintain a relationship with someone who refuses to replace his toothbrush every 3 months. It may sound picky, but we are not alone. Oral health matters more to women than men, according to a survey conducted by Delta Dental. In fact, poor oral hygiene is one of the top reasons women say they’ll break up with someone: 27% of women say they’ll end a relationship with someone who doesn’t brush twice a day. The survey also found that excellent oral hygiene is attractive! Nearly 80% of Baby Boomers and younger Gen Xers agree—good oral health is one of the sexiest qualities a partner can have. Unlike finding your soul mate, preventive oral health care is simple and painless. All it requires is brushing, flossing and visiting your dentist regularly. Who knows? Maybe you’ll find love at the dental office! Contact us today to learn how Hawaii Dental Service can ensure a lifetime of healthy smiles for your business and employees. MALLORIE L..

In the restaurant industry, you are constantly moving and taking on tasks that require heavy lifting, use of sharp tools, walking across slick surfaces, or working with various temperatures.

The most common forms of injury in the restaurant industry include: Slips, Trips, and Fall Cuts or Burns Lower Back Injuries Machine-Related Injuries With the open lines of communication and training on proper safety protocols, many of these accidental injuries can be prevented. Here are a few tips on avoiding potential workplace accidents and injuries: Stay on your feet. Wear slip-resistant footwear and use mats in areas that attract a lot of moisture to add some security to those slippery spots. But placement and maintenance a..
