Information that you may not be aware of....

People are creatures of habit - we go to the same sources, we look in the same places, and we tend to use the same tools over and over again.  While these skills work for us - we may be missing out on critical information or tools that can be exceedingly useful.  Think for a second - we all know that there is probably an "App" for that - but have you looked at what Apps are out there? 

I use several that help on a daily basis - the Emergency Responders Guide with the placarding is available as an App - you can look and see a variety of applications - pick one that suits your needs. There are several periodic table applications as well.  Check out this web page - it has the ERG 2012 - Medline, WISER (Wireless Information System for Emergency Responders) First Aid, and BioAgent Facts.  

And, how we receive updates and information has changed as well.  Did you know there was a Chemical Activity Barometer?  Is this something you should be aware of or use?  You can find out more information about it here.

Or, how do you keep up with the latest EPA enforcements in your industry sector.  You can find information about petroleum refineries here.

It used to be that you could subscribe to one or two services and feel confident that you could stay on top of things in your position - but now?  We are in an age of information overload - and there are estimates that the sum of human knowledge that will be available on the internet will begin to double at an alarming rate. 

My recommendation for staying ahead - is to build time into your schedule to review new tools, and new sources of information.  There are so many - that you may have to try a few to find what works for you - but it is worth the time.  We all are now our own newspaper/magazine editors - we just have to find the right tools for the job.
