eesf150One fatality involving an elevator mechanic in Indiana and another injured in Texas have this week’s show one of the worst ones I’ve had to do in a while. In addition to these articles another one from NJ reported that an inspector also was injured after falling down an elevator shaft but the icing on the cake which made me sick was watching a little girl play at the top of a downward traveling escalator and being pulled over the side.  Parents, always watch your children at malls and anywhere for that matter. Never let them play around escalators or elevators they are not amusement rides. For the proper way to ride elevators and escalators visit the Elevator Escalator Safety Foundation at www.eesf.org.

Elevator Radio Show – Video/Audio Show #390 – Week 02/11/15

ersbst It’s hard to believe that the show is approaching show number 400. In some ways it feels like it was just yesterday when we started this ride and in others it feels a lot longer. Perhaps it’s the lack of sleep that I’ve been getting every Wednesday.  The lead story for this week’s program is the verdict in which an elevator mechanic was found guilty of felony assault in a woman’s injuries. I believe it’s the second time that I’m aware of that a mechanic has been charged with this. And Boston, hang in there, the snow will melt by June!

ers-by20152As I was driving in this morning to do the show the news reported that worst of Juno is over but the snow and flooding that it brought is significant. For those of you in those areas impacted I imagine you’re staying home today and maybe tomorrow so relax.  Take your time shoveling/snow blowing and try not to get to upset about what you cannot control.  Try to enjoy it if you can, help a neighbor out and take it slow. Remember that the snow will be gone by June which is only five months away, I promise.
