Focus Vitamins Make Better Grades

Studies conducted on the most effective methods of aiding ADHD diagnosed children succeed in school stress the importance of introducing vitamins as well as supplements to help them concentrate in class.

Mindy, a stay at home mom, attests to the efficacy of focus vitamins for the control of Her 9-year-old son’s inability to sit still and pay attention for long periods of time.

When her son was first diagnosed, she opted to use prescription stimulant medications. At first, the drugs effectively controlled the symptoms associated with her son’s ADHD but brought on some side-effects Mindy felt outweighed any advantages the medications brought on. For instance, Liam’s appetite was affected as it decreased rapidly over a few days. He, later on, developed sleeping problems and became increasingly moody and irritable. After consulting a few friends and doing some research, she decided to start giving Liam focus vitamins on a daily basis.

Since then, Mindy has been tackling her son’s condition over the past two years by ensuring that Liam sticks to a strict diet that is gluten and sugar-free, and by ensuring that he takes his focus vitamins supplement at least twice a day.

His teachers had initially reported that he exhibited an inability to pay attention, focus, and sit still in class. As a result, he had begun to bring home enormous amounts of homework back home, had been placed in a Special Ed math program and was reading at a low level. However, within 6 weeks of using focus vitamins supplements, his teacher reported that he was sitting through most of his day and almost never getting up at inappropriate times. He was also finishing his homework in his after school program rather than bringing it all home like he was before. Liam was also taken out of his extra help/Special Ed math program and was finally moved back in with the rest of the class. He also moved up a reading level.

These astounding results were not only beneficial to her son’s academic success but were also beneficial to her as a parent. Parents of children diagnosed with ADHD/ADD tend to have very little private time because caring for their children requires extra effort. Like most parents, Mindy had a hard time accepting that her son required medicine for his anxious/inattentive behaviour. Starting off with prescription medication for his condition in her opinion worked only up to some point because the side effects that the medication brought on were too server and unpleasant. Furthermore, Liam did not like taking the prescription medication and would frequently skip a dose as a result.

However, focus vitamins have helped Liam stay calm and in control of his ADHD symptomatic impulsive behaviour over the last two years and is finally functioning socially. He has since made some friends and can concentrate on school related tasks. Moreover, Mindy has not had a hard time getting him to take his daily doses because he does not mind the taste of the chewable supplements. He also likes the calm effect the supplement has on him. He reported that compared to is previous prescription medication, focus vitamins did not make him feel like life was dull and bleak.

 

My friend John obtains his OSHA 500 Certification

When John first told me he was planning to get an OSHA 500 certification, I became very curious.

I began to research and help him find a suitable education center where he could get his certification.  I found a lot of helpful OSHA information on this website.

I also thought that I could do a blog post to inform other people who could be looking for the same information.

Course Description

This is in essence a course for trainers.

If you want to teach OSHA’s 10 and 30 hour construction classes, then this is the course for you.

The classes focus on construction safety and health, the requirements of the 10 and 30 hour classes.

Emphasis is also placed on hazardous topics in the construction industry.

The participants will learn effective approaches to instruction, training techniques, and adult learning principles.

You will also learn to clearly define, explain and identify hazards in the construction industry.

On getting an OSHA certification, you will become a trainer in the Outreach Program. You will conduct the 10 and 30 hour courses in construction safety and health.

You will also issue completion cards to your students.

Prerequisites for the OSHA 500 Certification

These are the prerequisites for you to receive this certification:

  • OSHA 510 – OSHA Standards for the Construction Industry
  • 5 years of experience in construction safety
  • A college degree in occupational health and safety
  • A certification as a safety professional (CSP)
  • Certification as an Industrial Hygienist (can be substituted with 2 years of experience)

Before you begin your classes, you need to submit a prerequisite eligibility form and a copy of your OSHA 510 certificate.

Prior training experience will also come in handy as you begin these classes.

Registration

There are a number of options when it comes to registration:

  • Online registration (pay via check, purchase order, or credit card)
  • Registration via mail (download the form from the education center’s website)

If you register as a group of 6 or more, you will receive a discount (in some education centers). Look for people who are interested in taking up the course and register together.

Testing

For you to become an authorized trainer, you need to prepare for and present an OSHA construction outreach topic that you will be assigned.

A laptop will be very useful when it comes to preparation of your presentations. Bring one to class.

You also need to pass a written exam.

On-site training

Some centers also offer training at your facility (on-site training). This option entails customizing the course to suit an organization’s needs.

There will be an assessment of organizational needs and goals to enable the tailoring of a suitable curriculum.

The advantages of this option include:

  • Reducing the amount of time members of staff spend away from work
  • Accommodation of various shifts and schedules
  • Allowing for the immediate transfer of training to the workplace.
  • The members of staff will still be subject to entry requirements, and testing.

Benefits of OSHA

When you get your training from OSHA training centers, you are assured of coursework and techniques that are governed by a larger body.

The safety professionals not only follow the coursework, but also bring their real world experiences, and latest information to the classroom.

Conclusion

You are now armed with information about the OSHA 500. You can join people like my friend John who recently obtained his certification.
