What is Time Management?
Your most precious and limited resource is time. Learning effective time management is a valuable skill in and out of the workplace. Time management is essentially the way that you manage your time in business, life, and other aspects of your day today. If you’re busy or have a job where you fulfill a lot of different roles, time management might even be a more significant part of your life than you know it. We are all busy, but finding ways to improve your time management is important for your business and well-being. There are lots of reasons to improve your time management skills and methods that your business will significantly benefit from doing so.
EMT’s and ambulance personnel are under tremendous pressure. They have to concentrate and react quickly to care for their patients, and they have to do it while trying to stay on their feet in a fast-moving vehicle.
A critical moment for EMT’s is when they need to change out IV bags. Most IV hangers used in ambulances today require the EMT to use two hands to thread the bag onto the hanger. The process of identifying the hanger then trying to quickly thread the bag onto a stiff clasp can rob them of critical seconds. Moreover, with no extra hand available to provide balance, they’re exposed to injuring themselves, coworkers, or even the patient in the event of a quick turn or sudden stop.
At Austin Hardware®, we are your source for research and development, design, manufacturing, and more. We have extensive custom engineering capabilities and pride ourselves on providing some of the best engineering solutions across the industry.
