I'm building a site meant to give away top-quality safety posters as a free service. I think EHS fits in very well, for many reasons including these:
-EMF is a set of invisible phenonmena that are confusing to people, so they need help understanding it.
-There are some myths to debunk. Like Marc says, there is a great deal of minsinformation out there.
-We tend to forget to be cautious to protect against EMF, because it's unseen and works so gradually that it wrecks our health slowly and very insidiously. So having safety posters up and visible would be a great help to us all.
-Posters can also spread the word about EMF dangers effectively, to help others avoid the health scares we've all had to go through.
So think back on what you've learned that might really help others. What helped *you* the most? Here are some poster ideas I'll certainly be creating and posting online:
-General EMF safety (how to avoid the top 8-12 causes of EMF health problems)
-Bedroom EMF safety
-Kitchen EMF safety
-Vehicular EMF safety
-Using electrical gadgets safely
-Using computers safely
-Protecting your body with anti-EMF clothing and armor
-Using nutrition to bolster your health
So, your thoughts? Are there other subjects for you'd like to be covered by a safety poster? Would you like to recommend threads or web pages that you think would be a great help on these topics?
Thanks Marc for your kind attention and quick help. I tried making a post on FB, but there didn't seem to be any way to select a Topic or Subject. I clicked on "Add To Your Post" and the "More" link too, but neither one led to a topic. Maybe if I downloaded your browser extension it would be clear on how to do it. I use Google Chrome for my Mac mainly, also Firefox and Safari. Thanks in advance if you can help.
It occurs to me that an excellent way to get a start on creating some safety posters would be to first create a directory of short articles that are heavily focused on giving quick tips. I started a thread for this idea at:
But it mainly addresses the harmful effects, not very helpful at all. Maybe somebody who's better at research can find some pre-existing poster or maybe a short article or infographic that can be used as a helpful poster.
I finally am finding time for my idea to create safety posters that cover EMF-related issues. The home site for the posters will be http://www.freekindposters.org. The website is up now and you can go there to read what the site's about.
In a nutshell, as it says on the home page: "There's a big need for a better way to disseminate easy-to-learn safety information. And that's a need this site aims to step in and fill."
Starting with EMF and ES. Then it will grow to cover dozens more topics related to health, safety and quality-of-life!
The basic poster development process will be to (1) post lists of helpful principles here at ES-Forum.com, (2) ask for your input to help improve it, then (3) stitch those maxims into 5-10 posters. They will be made downloadable as free PDF files.
The one poster now available at FreeKindPosters.org covers dog safety. That's mainly because it's a much easier topic than human safety. The site also presents links to five other pages I've written before, covering important human safety topics:
Keeping Safe From Crime
24 Top Health Tips
12 Worst Consumer Mistakes
My ES-Forum.com Posts
I've converted the four safety aricles I've authored into free PDF files that will print well. They are three to seven pages filled with quick tips, which is fine for keeping as handy notes. Someday I'll convert them into one or two pages, for easy use as posters you can hang anywhere.
They don't cover EMF topics, strictly speaking. Still, they are "good to know" and they also serve as examples of the public-spirited, humanely beneficial writing I like to do. Free downloadable EMF safety posters are coming soon. Here is what's available now:
An auto safety course formerly sited at AutoSafetyHub.org, now archived at AutoSafetyHub.GoodLifeMission.com (or download this 4-page PDF.) It has some really funny elements to help make it popular among younger drivers.
The 12 Worst Consumer Goofs (or 5-page PDF) that can threaten your health, safety and financial freedom. This one also uses funny pictures to help keep people interested.
The Happier Healthier Life Award (or 7-page PDF) giving 24 tips and 24 secrets for better health. If you think about it, health and safety are closely related: Safety is normally understood as defending from threats to your health that come from outside your body, while good health is about making sure you are safe and vibrant inside your body. This "Award" is a no-nonsense list packed with great info. When you click on any tip topic you like, you'll instantly receive more in-depth information.
The How To Keep Safe From Crime (or 3-page PDF) tip list gives basic lessons on how to keep your home safe, plus a section on how to stay personally safe when not at home. Also you'll learn how to handle dangerous people, what to teach kids, and how to protect your personal data.
It occurred to me that people might be calling their graphic designes "infographics" instead of "posters" and indeed that is the case. It made for an interesting time looking through Google's image results.
I'll reveal the best images over the next few days. Some are good as functional posters that help remind us to safeguard ourselves against EMF. Others are just really interesting "food for thought".
