The Elevator Escalator Safety foundation rebranding committee met yesterday in Chicago yesterday and I have to say it was nice to meet and see everyone who attended.  The good news is that we’re moving towards a different direction with the program the bad news is that the plan to do so is still being formulated. This is an exciting time for the foundation and one that is a long time coming. I’ll have more to share on this process as our committee moves through it and look forward to doing so. One accident on today’s show just goes to prove that the EESF is still needed in preventing accidents from happening.

Back from a wonderful trip to Wisconsin where it was cold and snowy and no one robbed my house after declaring I’d be out for a few days over the interweb.  I wasn’t too surprised to learn that there were not a lot of articles out there but some I enjoy commenting on. If you’re like me and wonder how some of this ends online please feel free to comment. Those are some of the best items to read.

Elevator Radio Show – Video/Audio Show #380 – Week 11/19/14

Audio Podcast: Elevator Radio Show – Video/Audio Show #380 – Week 11/19/14

ers-trkyWinter has come with a vengeance and I’m already looking forward to this weekend where temps are predicted to be in the upper 40’s, what’s wrong with me. For our listeners in NY or just East of Buffalo I’m glad that the snow you’re getting isn’t falling on Chicago.  Short show today but a couple of articles are filled with stupidness, yes I know that’s not a real word but I feel it fits the context of what I’m going to cover today. Next week there will be no show. I’m headed to the snow frozen Northwoods of Wisconsin with my family and plan on enjoying it. From my family to yours, have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving. Be back with a new show the first week of December. Oh and one more thing, if you’re looking for a new sweatshirt, consider this one. I know it’s a bit much for a sweatshirt but I make no money on any of the items over on our goodies store. Everything is marked up $5 if you can believe it and that same $5 goes back to the EESF. It’s a win win for everyone; they get $5, you have cool gear your coworkers will wish they had.
