Safety Bingo

Safety Bingo

b2ap3_thumbnail_bingothree.jpg

As companies strive to become more successful and sustainable they are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of promoting employee safety. Our safety committee has been working on different ways to prevent injuries in the work place (we have been able to reduce the injury rate of our employees by 100% over six months). One creative way we have implemented injury prevention is by playing safety bingo; which allows employees to work as a team to make sure the work place is a safe place. Each day a number gets pulled however, if there is an injury in the building the game will stop and start over. The first employee to get bingo wins a prize; our prizes include paid time off, gas cards, grocery gift cards and cash. Creating a safer work environment results in happier, safer employees.

Tech Tips: Types of Art Files

Tech Tips: Types of Art Files

There are two basic types of art files: raster files, which use bitmaps (bitmaps define a display space and the color for each pixel or “bit” in the display space) to make images, and vector files that make objects from points and lines (outlines). Vector files are created from drawing programs such as Adobe Illustrator (.ai) and Corel Draw (.cdr) Raster files are created by bitmap or pixel based programs like Photoshop (.ps) or Painter. Raster files can also be saved as tiff, jpeg, and gif. File formats such as .eps or .pdf, can be created from either type of graphics file and may contain both vector and raster images within the same file.

 

The Differences

Vector based files can be infinitely enlarged without regard to resolution as they are created with line segments and curves. Bitmap based images, however, can be enlarged only as far as the original resolution of the original image will allow. The more resolution (or pixels) in the original document, the more it can be enlarged without the loss of clarity.
