Business Observations in China ( tidbits)
I travel to China a few times a year. The country is rapidly developing, and sometimes, the change is amazing. It never cease to surprise in its evolution and innovation.
This is a simple idea, yet I have not seen it in many places. Put huge beach umbrellas in parking lots, and then open it when there is rain or hot weather.
The umbrellas protect the car from heat, and it also allows an occupant to disembark from the car without getting wet during rainy days. In good weather, or when there are special ocassions , you can either close it, and or even disengage it to give you wide open space.
China is still developing and in many areas can still be known as not practicing proper safety procedures. This time, in both hotels I stayed, I noticed that inside the cabinet, they are now providing free face masks for fire emergencies. This must have been triggered by some unfortunate accidents, but this is commendable, and probably a step up over many developed countries.
Most people who perished in fires do so through smoke poisoning, and putting face masks in high rise hotels could save some lives in the event of an emergency.
Hopefully, every country and city should explore this option to see how it can always make our buildings and our lives safer.7:33:02 AM comment  trackback
