Sports are great for giving children and adults exposure to exercise, teamwork, and social cohesion. One of the greatest sports-related concerns, however, is safety. Most injuries that do occur during sporting events are relatively minor, but the risk of serious injury is oftentimes present. By taking the precautions described below, one can reduce his or her risk of injury.
Appropriate attire is essential when participating in sports, and not just so that players can identify which team you are playing for. Athletic wear allows you to move fluidly without having to worry about range-of-motion limitations or clothes ripping. Protective gear, such as helmets and pads, can also shield you from severe injury.
Warm Up and Cool Down
Stretching your muscles before engaging in active exercise is one of the best ways to prevent injury. After a period of high-intensity training or active game play, you should also slowly wind down rather than quickly transition to a resting state in order to aid your body in recovering from the physical exertion.
Play in an Appropriate Space
The playing surface and its surroundings are two of the most important factors in determining whether or not a space is appropriate for game play. The field or court you play on should be large enough and enclosed by a temporary or permanent fence so that game play is not interrupted by spectator interference.
Watch Out for Others
Off-field safety is easy to bypass when thinking about sports safety, but it is very important. A well-marked fence can alert bystanders or passersby to the boundaries of a playing field so that they do not accidentally walk into a game or get hit by a ball.
At Cal State Site Services, Inc., we carry a range of fences that can be used to mark the boundaries of a playing field for the benefit of players and spectators alike. Our fences are topped with Polycap to further enhance their visibility and the safety of game play. To speak with a knowledgeable company representative about our temporary fences in Simi Valley and the greater Los Angeles area, call (888) 440-6122.

Are you in the process of planning a large event? Unless the event you are preparing is to be held in a facility that conveniently has a large number of working sinks spread throughout the grounds, you will probably be required by law to provide sinks for event staff and attendees alike.
A portable sink is an easy and cost-effective way to meet sanitation requirements concerning hand washing. They are also necessary and helpful to have on construction sites, at sporting games, and at most other community events. Another reason to rent a portable sink unit is to provide attendees with a place to wash their hands after using portable toilets.
Cal State Site Services, Inc. rents some of the most desirable portable sink units in the Los Angeles area. In addition to soap dispensers, our state-of-the-art double sinks come with a full tank of freshwater and a holding tank into which the gray water is discharged so that it can be properly disposed of. To learn more about our sinks, fences, and portable toilets, visit our website or call (888) 440-6122.

When it comes to wedding planning, even the most trivial detail will count—which means even the toilets can have a big impact on your special day. If you are having a large outdoor wedding in a remote location, you will need to rent portable toilets to accommodate your guests throughout the day. From selecting the right number of toilets to dressing them up for the ceremony, here are a few tips for renting portable toilets for an outdoor wedding.
Calculate Your Needs
First, collect all of your RSVPs and tally up the total number of attending guests. As a general rule of thumb, one portable toilet provides approximately 160 to 200 uses with four hours between uses and a 50% mix of men and women. Visit our website to have a look at our portable toilet calculator to determine the appropriate number of toilets based on the number of attending guests and the length of your wedding.
Consider Premium Rentals
Before you make your reservation, be sure to consider all of your portable toilet options. While the standard portable toilet is certainly the most affordable option, there are premium options that will improve the comfort of your outdoor wedding. Our VIP Trailer, for example, comes with two or four portable toilets and is powered by solar panels which run the air conditioning, interior lighting, and fresh water sink. Your guests will love the fresh water flushing porcelain toilets and deck-mounted soap dispenser.
Spruce Up the Toilets
No matter which portable toilet model you select, you can add a few last-minute touches to make your toilets more suitable for an outdoor wedding. Consider adding a simple arrangement of fresh flowers or a basket or potpourri inside. A simple amenities basket featuring antibacterial hand lotion, bug spray, mints, and other items is also a nice touch.
No matter how big or small your outdoor wedding, Cal-State Site Services can provide the portable toilets you need to keep your guests comfortable. Located in Simi Valley, CA, we provide portable toilet rentals throughout San Luis Obispo County, San Diego County, and Los Angeles County. Call us at (888) 440-6122 to learn more or to place an order.
