Safety Doesn't Happen by Accident

Posted by Ulliance on Jan 22, 2020 1:58:22 PM

Assessment, Awareness, Action

The Occupational Safety and Health Act was passed in 1970 – an act which mandated that employers provide a safe workplace for employees. It was from this landmark decision that the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) was established. Being aware of OSHA guidelines and your rights to a safe work environment are critical.

Additionally, consider your own situational awareness – for example, as you read this, do you know where the nearest exit is in your building? How about the nearest fire extinguisher?

Posted by Ulliance on Jan 15, 2020 9:25:46 AM

Have you ever wondered why you use money in a particular way?

Achieve Financial Wellness in 2020. 

Want to make more money? Think differently about it. If that sounds too easy, it's because it's easier said than done! But it is a key to creating financial stability.

Our relationship, our feelings and thoughts about money, start in childhood. If you were fortunate enough to be born into a financially stable and fiscally responsible family, you probably picked up on some healthy notions about money. You probably learned the value of saving, were encouraged to develop delayed gratification, and maybe as you matured, you learned about the secrets of compound interest and eventually, how to invest.

Posted by Ulliance on Dec 6, 2019 9:07:49 AM

Many people look forward to the holiday season and the start of a new year.  It often provides an opportunity to spend quality time with family, take a few days off from work, or go on a winter getaway.

While the holiday season can be a fun and joyous time, it can also be very stressful.  The combined effort of shopping, attending social events, and entertaining guests can quickly become too much to handle.  A poll by the American Psychological Association shows that eight out of ten people anticipate increased stress over the holidays.  In some cases, the increase in stress and anxiety may even lead to depression.  The Mayo Clinic reports that depression is often an unwelcome guest during the holidays.

First Responders On the Front Line—Constantly Put to the Test

Posted by Ulliance on Aug 21, 2019 8:33:23 AM

First Responders Put Themselves Last When It Comes to Mental Health

With all of the tragedy around us everyday, from workplace violence, random shootings, to everyday car accidents, first responders are there to help others—and always ready to act at a moment’s notice. But it is easy to minimize the toll that it takes on first responders.
