Workplace Preparedness: Stroke Warning Signs

It’s already known that stress from work can increase your risk for cardiovascular disease, particularly high blood pressure and heart disease. High blood pressure is one of the most important known risk factors in stroke – and many people don’t even know they have it. It is often called the ‘silent killer’. The only way to know you have high blood pressure is to get checked. Strokes are the fifth leading cause of death for Americans and fourth largest cause of death in the United Kingdom.
Know the health effects of smoke exposure

Health Effects of Smoke Exposure

Dry weather conditions increase the potential for wildfires. The hazards of wildfires can extend well beyond the fire itself. Stay alert for wildfire warnings and take action to protect yourself from wildfire smoke. Smoke from wildfires and large structure fires is a mixture of gases and fine particles from burning trees, plants, and building materials. Ultra-tiny particles in smoke can bypass the protective filtering mechanisms in airways and lodge deep in the lungs and enter the bloodstream. Such smoke can hurt your eyes, irritate your respiratory system, and worsen chronic heart and lung diseases.

Risky Business: How Geopolitics and Compliance are Intertwined

Global organizations are becoming increasingly aware of the need to effectively manage regulatory and compliance risk, to understand local business practices, to be fully informed on regulations including corruption legislation, and to fully investigate the practices of both the business itself and partnering organizations. Those that fail to address risks to global integrity, and fail to perform due diligence on the people and companies with which they choose to partner, face significant financial losses in the form of fines and other legal costs, along with a disparaged brand that impacts future customer acquisition, retention and loyalty.
