Covid 19 Effects on Small Business

Rewarding Good Service

It’s sad and terrifying to think of the impact Covid19 is having on many lives, not only the sickness and deaths but also the living. The people that survive the virus still have to face their future with the economic impact about to come.

I am seeing more reference to BC and AC. Before Covid-19 and After Covid-19. The unknown portion of this idea is not knowing when the “After Covid-19 will begin”.

For many small business people around the world, surviving the virus will result in deep depression and worse, because everything that they have worked for will be taken away.

As bad as this is going to be, please remember that you can not think rationally under stress. You will not be able to re-invent yourself if you are under stress. Take the time to brush everything off and relax. Think about small changes to your business that can keep you going in uncertain times.

I learned yesterday of a market place on a small street, now in lockdown, no customers allowed to visit the market, and around 20 small businesses now effected. One shop that has a van for delivering bread put forward the idea to do home deliveries for all the shops if they had phone or online orders. The business turnover is reduced and a bit more difficult to complete, but they are now able to stay in business. Group together and help each other, you will be able to get through this.

The new norm is

  1. Working from home
  2. Getting things delivered

How can you change your business to supply demand to the new norm? If you make clothes for fashion, right now hospitals and old age homes need clean sheets. Start making sheets, masks and gowns to keep people safe.

If you have a restaurant, start supplying family size meals that can be stored or frozen and deliver them to families not as a takeaway meal, but as meals for the week. Good food that will keep people healthy.

If you are a gym, learn to use zoom and skype, connect with your clients one on one and let them borrow your equipment to workout from home, people will continue to pay a membership for personal service if they can survive and keep earning money.

Take the time to think of every opportunity that you have to make a difference.

I have 2 sites that may be of assistance:

  1. Total Commitment Cloud
  2. SOHONET

Government jobs will probably be unchanged until the bean counters get involved at the next budget meeting. I don’t think anyone is going to be safe. Countries are governed and elections are won based on the economic and social management of the country. If one part of the 3 necessary conditions for stability is lost, governments are removed.

The 3 necessary conditions for government are:

  1. Manage the economy to create growth now and into the future.
  2. Manage social conditions to improve lifestyle now and into the future
  3. Provide satisfaction to the global solution now and into the future.

These 3 conditions equate to

  1. Look after the money
  2. Look after The People
  3. Look after our contribution to the planet.

All government laws and policies are covered by these 3 necessary conditions.

Covid19 has interrupted all 3 necessary conditions for government, The money has been spent trying to look after the people and our borders have been blocked removing trade and making countries concentrate on local conditions.

All government will soon have to look at the changes necessary to secure the necessary conditions for government. Governments that do this well will manage to stay in government, others will not and their people will take the brunt of their poor decisions.

How to Recognise a Gas Leak

Gas leaks have specific signs, and you need to pay attention. It will require using all of your senses to detect the cause of the problem. You may smell a “rotten egg” smell and bubbling of wet or flooded areas. When testing for leaks, we apply a detergent solution to fittings to help detect any leaks. The detergent will bubble around the area that the gas is leaking. Dust particles may blow when there is enough pressure from the leaking appliance or fitting. Or a hissing sound may be heard coming from a gas leak. All of these signs are very dangerous. If you can smell, hear or see a gas leak, please leave the area and call our 24 / 7 emergency gas service number.

Pace Electrical – Site Surveillance

Pace Electrical Site Surveillance
Pace Electrical – Site Surveillance

There are dishonest people onsite, and there are unscrupulous people that visit sites. Your equipment, tools and material end up missing. Copper theft continues to be at epidemic proportions, even when prices fluctuate. Theft is the most frequent cause of equipment loss–some five times more common than vandalism in most years and construction sites are always a tempting target for vandals.

Most construction sites have no human security in the off hours or irregular security patrols that prove to be inefficient and ineffective. They can tell you that the equipment is gone, not what, when, where, why or how? 

Insurance coverage may offset some of the replacement costs, but not the disappointment and frustration of wondering what happened and who you can trust.

You will have lost time to purchase new equipment. You will be out of pocket paying for the equipment, while you wait for the insurance if it gets approved. 

The insurance company may seem a little challenging to deal with and come up with some clause about the location that you parked your ute, or the toolbox security not being sufficient.

 The result is more expense and lost time. Lost time on the job, lost time replacing tools and equipment and lost time documenting and filling out insurance forms. 

Make a site security plan to protect your equipment, tools and time.

  1.  Have a written site security policy and a precise site protection plan for each worksite.
  2. Ask your insurance company to clarify the claims process and define what is and is not covered before you take your equipment on site.
  3. Document an example claim form and process to follow so that you can complete the process quickly and easily. When the time comes to do this, you are not going to be in a good state of mind, and having a way to reduce the frustration will be worth the effort.
  4. Assign supervisory safety obligations and inspire protection awareness amongst all employees. 
  5. Your site security policy should include the local police and fire services contact details. Go and talk to your local police to make sure you understand the process to follow. Letting them know about the site and equipment may encourage them to visit or drive by, which can also help prevent theft. 
  6. Contact neighbouring properties and inspire them to report suspicious activity. Make it worth their while. It can save you time and money.
  7. Correctly identify equipment and property onsite, so there is no confusion.
  8. If available, use secure perimeter fencing as a primary line of protection, and clearly identify your trespass policy with signage.
  9. Lock up equipment and secure vehicles in accordance with your insurance policy requirements.
  10. Restrict traffic where possible to one entry to the site.
  11. Ask personnel and subcontractors to agree to and follow the site security policy.
  12.  Ask personnel and subcontractors to report any incidents of theft or vandalism.
  13. Install a Pace Electrical site surveillance system to record all traffic in and out of the site. Site surveillance is a deterrent and provides a secure record of site practices. 24 /7 video surveillance can record what happened and increase your chance of material recovery. Motion detection recording and reporting can increase your chances of criminal detection and apprehension.

I recommend that you talk to Kevin Pace, Pace Electrical 0411 969 731 about your construction site and event security system needs.

Podiatrist Inner West Sydney

Who is the right podiatrist for your feet in the Inner West of Sydney? All podiatrists study and become accredited before they can practice their craft, so what makes them different and how can you tell who can provide the service that you need.

For general podiatry needs, the answer is probably any podiatrist in Sydney’s Inner West is capable of treating an ingrown toenail or discomfort caused by a bunion.

What if the problem is biomechanical. For a podiatrist to be able to diagnose and treat leg length difference or flat feet, plantar fasciitis, ankle, knee and back pain caused by incorrect foot alignment, they must have experience in identifying the underlining cause of the problem.

Neil Smith is a Certified Pedorthist C.Ped.Au, specialising in Orthotics and Biomechanics. Neil invented the Vertical Foot Alignment System to correct foot alignment while standing. His weight-bearing correction technique will revolutionise the procedure in place for stabilising the foot position for casting after foot surgery.

The Foot Alignment Clinic has 5 locations in and around Sydney. All 5 Foot Alignment Clinic locations use the VerticalFAS patented technology when treating patients. 

Gavin Johnston is a physiotherapist with over twelve years of private practice experience. He has had a particular interest in biomechanics and postural problems. Gavin has worked in Australia, England and Austria with a wide variety of patients, including full-time athletes such as the Newcastle Knights team, Australian Ski team, national level rowers, elite ballet dancers and various rugby teams. 

Gavin is currently practice principal of East West Physiotherapy, the Foot Alignment Clinic Hunters Hill.

Beth Fechner | Experienced in Podiatry and High Risk Feet. Originally from Melbourne, Podiatrist Beth Fechner completed her studies at La Trobe University in 2008. She studied Podiatry to help people with pain and keep them active. Since commencing work with Neil and the Vertical Foot Alignment System in 2016, Beth has been able to correct foot posture within the tissue’s ability to move, therefore produce more effective orthotics. 

“I had not been able to consistently achieve this when using traditional casting methods.” “

Keeping Pace with our Electrician | Pace Electrical

I want to tell you about Kevin Pace from Pace Electrical. Kevin and his team have come up with a very unique concept for site security. Security and surveillance systems have been the norm for a long time, but Kevin and his team have created a very unique concept of taking the surveillance mobile.

They have created mobile towers with surveillance cameras and recorders that you can take with you from site to site or to events. Currently deployed across Sydney constructions sites to protect equipment and staff.

I have been involved in connecting up site surveillance and try to find the best position to mount the cameras and then trying to get the cabling back to a safe place to put the recorder. With wireless technology this have become easier but still not a great.

Problems are caused by signal interference and the distance across the site. You also have to be aware of the surveillance equipment being stolen or damaged.

This mobile security solution is great for construction sites, but I think they would be great for music festival and other events where making sure the public is safe is a top priority.

Great concept, well done Kevin.

Kevin Pace and Pace Electrical. Highly Recommended.

Introduction to Beth Fechner, Podiatrist Sydney

Beth Fechner is a podiatrist at The Foot Alignment Clinic, Marrickville and Leichhardt clinics in Sydney.

Originally from Melbourne, Podiatrist Beth Fechner completed her studies at La Trobe University in 2008. She studied Podiatry to help people with pain and keep them active. Beth has worked in Hobart and Sydney, mostly in private practice. She spent 2 years at the Royal Hobart Hospital working with “high risk feet” – people at risk of ulcers or amputation. Beth has experience working with people of all activity levels, from pre-schoolers to 90+ year olds.

If you need a Podiatrist in Sydney, and you have sore feet from winter sports or you are warming up for the running season, you may encounter some common foot problems that can be addressed in a general podiatry treatment:

-sore toenails – either from being ingrown or thickened nails from damage/fungal infection

-blisters- treatment and future management options

-callous – hard skin, which can feel like it burns with repetitive movements such as running or walking

-corns – deeper, more concentrated areas of callous that hurt and feel like you are walking on a pebble

-peeling skin or rashes

Make an appointment with Beth to get your feet fixed. It just makes sense, rather than walking in pain for long periods of time, let her help you.
