Elevator Radio Show – Video/Audio Show #393 – Week 03/18/15



After some awesome sunny weather here in Chicago the dirty snow piles are gone which is cause for celebration. Now all we need is for the warmer temperatures to stay for good and we might actually be able to enjoy the season of Spring. There’s another another over the side escalator accident that occurred after a concert in Houston which has me wondering if we can teach people how not to do stupid things or if this is Darwinism in action and we’re weeding out those that should not be walking the earth with us.

Elevator Radio Show – Video/Audio Show #392 – Week 03/11/15


It’s great to be back after traveling last week to sunny warm Tampa for the EESF Annual General Meeting. I’m not sure what it is about heading to industry events like these but it’s exactly what I needed to get out of the day to day rut I didn’t realize I was in. I felt recharged when I got back with a new perspective on work, family and doing my part to give back to the industry that’s given me so much. I’ll recap more on the program today. I encourage you to give back to the industry by considering a donation to help the foundation meet it’s goal quicker with the new program development.

No Show 3/4/2015

erscaptI just got back to work after attending the Elevator Escalator Safety Foundations Annual General Meeting in Tampa and wanted to thank everyone who attended. Now it’s time to get caught up at work.

There were some excellent ideas and input shared and I’m excited for the foundation and the future plans for the new program development.  I’ll provide a recap on next weeks show.
