Click Here to download ERS-2009-01-28 #145 There are two really good articles worthy of printing out this week. One involves the OSHA findings in an elevator technician's death and the other talks about a lawsuit in which only the owner of the elevators was sued and no one else. I'll share my comments about it during the show and invite you to share yours as well. We're also going to be giving away a Maxtor external backup drive compliments of ElevatorBob.com.
