While several companies are trying to make these products, getting regulatory approvals continues to be a challenge. Being a PPE manufacturer, we use authentic materials for each of our PPE products, including goggles & face shields and ensure that the entire product range meets the global quality standard. As a purpose-driven organisation, we will continue to lend support in every way possible and help overcome this battle.”Through these initiatives, KARAM Industries that manufactures all PPE from Head to Toe like safety helmets, face shields, safety shoes, full-body harnesses, other fall protection equipment and eyewear aims to expand its healthcare PPE product portfolio looking at the current scenario.

KSAC to Continue Removal of Illegal Billboards Local GovernmentJuly 10, 2013Written by: Chris Patterson FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The Kingston and St. Andrew Corporation (KSAC) will continue its drive to rid the Corporate Area of illegal billboards and signs that have been erected without the Corporation’s approval.This was stated by Mayor of Kingston, Senator Angela Brown Burke, during Tuesday’s (July 9) monthly meeting of the KSAC, at its Church Street chambers in downtown Kingston.She noted that there are several cases that are long outstanding “and where we have several contacts without any seeming change in the status of these signs.”“In short order, we will move to the next phase of our programme, which entails the removal of signs for which persons have been given adequate notice and have failed to comply with the requirements,” she said, and encouraged persons to regularise their signs and billboards to avoid the penalties.The Mayor informed that internally, the Corporation continues to make changes to ensure that applications are completed within the shortest possible time. “At the last sitting of our Building and Town Planning Committee, decisions were made on 34 applications,” she said.She noted that the Corporation will continue to ensure that signs and billboards are sited in appropriate areas, are properly installed, do not pose a threat to the security of motorists and pedestrians alike, and do not detract from the aesthetics of the environs.“The additional revenue generated puts the KSAC in a better position to finance the many services we are called upon to provide, but most importantly we have to remain cognisant of our responsibilities to ensure that construction is done in accordance with industry standards, to prevent injuries to the public,” she said.In February this year, the KSAC commenced its drive to remove illegal billboards and signs in the city.Contact: Chris Patterson RelatedFencing of Montego Bay Civic Centre to Cost $17 Millioncenter_img RelatedSizzling Summer Savings Returns Downtown Advertisements RelatedJPs Encouraged to Get Involved in Restorative Justicelast_img read more

Lessons learnt in the year 2020

first_imgThis year started with a lot of thrill to achieve innumerable goals. It was the most awaited year, which came after four years as it was a leap year.  The joy, excitement, and resolutions all came to a halt because of the untimely activities and events that followed this year and taught us many new lessons and enhanced our endurance in life. The skills learned are so valuable that I cannot forget them ever in my forthcoming life. I want to pass it on to the next generation.The lessons learned are precious and to be shared with all. I would love to share a few of my experiences.1)     I learned that man proposes, and God has full authority to dispose of our proposal. We have no power to oppose His decision. I realized that this world is ultimately run by a supreme Power who has the strength to control us. His verdict is the final. Man is merely a puppet in His hands. We need to obey Him.2)     Nothing in this world is permanent. Everything passes off. If happiness did not stay long, sadness will also never stay. We need to develop patience and quit haste; after all, haste makes waste.3)     I understood how insignificant we are before nature. God has blessed us with immense knowledge, but we cannot fight a virus that is so small that it is invisible. We have not reached the heights we are unnecessarily proud of achieving. We still need to work extremely hard.4)     Life is the biggest blessing. I learned to value it. Death can approach from anywhere and put a full stop to this glorious chapter. We need to enjoy this gift before we lose it.5)     I learned the worth of relationships. It is good to have numerous friends on social media, but our dear ones stand by us at the end of the day. Their love and support make life worth living. Love all and quit hatred. Value the relationships residing with you. Give time to them. They deserve it from you.6)     It taught me the difference between need and want. We want the entire world, but do we need it? No. We just run behind the desires ignoring the small happiness in life. Ultimately, we end up achieving nothing. I have learned to live with the things I need.7)     This year taught me to relax. It taught me that the world runs even if I do not rush to do things. I am not that significant as much I think I am.8)     I learned the value of sharing. Sharing clothes, food, and amenities with others gives an immeasurable pleasure. The blessing that comes out of the heart of a needy person reaches the sky instantly. It brings about miracles.9)     It taught me to appreciate every person who plays a role in our life, whether it be a cook, a maid, or a driver. We take them for granted. Without them, life is so tough.10)    Finally, it taught me to be happy in every moment, and happiness comes with contentment. Let us learn to be satisfied and grateful for all that we have. Life is short. We do not know when we will fall into the deep dark trench called death. Before that, we need to be happy and live life to the fullest.11)   Let us thank God for giving us a chance to survive this pandemic where thousands have lost their lives. We are lucky to survive this disease. Probably there is a purpose for our survival. Let us accomplish it and leave this world with a smile of achieving our goal.last_img read more
