John A. Mejias, BSc., grew up in Trinidad and Tobago with an accomplished author of “learn to read” preschool books and lifetime educator as his mother; a sales professional and fabrication business owner for a father; with a published, highly educated expert in wealth management for a sister.
John is a graduate of the University of Saskatchewan, Canada, whose business experience includes owning, managing, and operating local and international businesses with a speciality in labor relations, people management, and recruitment. As a private service consultant, he has directed business development for small- to medium-sized enterprises and consulted for start-ups, existing businesses, and governments for over 20 years. He is a multitrade safety advocate who established the Canadian Construction Safety Fundamentals course for foreign workers new to the Canadian safety culture where English is not their first language.
In 2010 John originated and cofounded Own Energy Corporation in Edmonton to provide renewable energies supply and integration and installation services for residential, commercial, and industrial applications. Recognized as a subject matter expert in this area, he was called to write the curriculum for and continues to teach the Integration of Distributed Energy Systems at the college-diploma level for professionals in renewable energy.
“Integration is where the magic happens” is one of his best known quotes. He is highly committed to fostering public and government awareness on the vast planetary and economic advantages of this growing market in making renewable energy practical for everyday use.
In 2013 John added business development and corporate compliance to his experience list as one of the founders of a multidisciplinary consulting and coating distribution company, OE Nano Inc. This company branched into areas of biosecurity protocols and raised the awareness of “farm to fork” methods of sanitization, mainly focused on preventable communicable disease management. OE Nano works with several leading (not bleeding) edge nanotechnology surface coatings for residential, commercial, and industrial structures and other products that support new safety practices in the oil and gas sector in Canada and as far away as the Middle East.
John’s latest achievement, most importantly, has centered on education once again. His new book is directed to medical professionals and facility managers alike, along with his upcoming presentations that focus on some of the latest methods of preserving human, animal, and plant life by better managing general biological cross-contamination. This new work is expected to become a best practice standard for many institutions. Bridging the Hygiene Gap: Nano Technology to the Rescue at Work, Home and Play, and the valuable knowledge therein, speaks directly to those who are responsible for the general public’s safety by offering new best practice to assist in preventing disease outbreaks, quarantines, or closures of public or private facility.
Teamed with all of the vetted and noteworthy “Author-Recommended Businesses” purposely mentioned in this book, John also addresses the much larger global issues of pandemics in this ever-shrinking planet that exacerbated by the ease of distant travel and our rapidly expanding populations. John offers advice on how to strive to survive on our planet and adapt or adopt new technologies to purposely thrive hereon.
The ancient adage “An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of any cure” still rings true! Managing preventable communicable diseases (PCD) in this world of pandemics, cholera deaths due to the aftermath of natural disasters, outbreaks on cruise liners or even in your local day care then to be brought into to your own home may be drastically curtailed if the gap is bridged between scheduled disinfections. The use of biosecurity coatings on common touch-point surfaces, the main cause of many debilitating (if not deadly) pathogens being spread, must become mandatory if we are to save ourselves from the continued introduction of super bugs into our everyday environments.
This book will look into everything from hospitals to restaurants and at home to exotic locations and points in between where we work, live, and play. “Forewarned” will be “fore armed” in simple nontechnological language that you should use every day. Now you will know that you may spend much less and get better results.
Bio secure surface coatings are here to benefit all and this book will teach you where to find and use this nano scale technology to benefit cost and health standards on the micro to macro scale globally.
